I haven't heard much about this school on here or any other forum for that matter. I got in with some money, but I don't know enough about the school or it's reputation. Any opinions?
I can only speak from undergrad experience - I am finishing up my degree here.
But I'll speak regarding what I do know - the University finished the new law school building on campus - its easily one of the nicer buildings on campus - only the business school and the new JB hunt building have comparable quality.
I also know Wal-Mart currently has an abundance of graduates from UofA law school in their in-house counsel. Since Wal-Mart corporate is about 20 minutes away from campus and the Walton's donate heavily to the school, they like UofA graduates.
Tyson and JB Hunt also have their HQs nearby so I imagine they hire from the school a lot as well.
Finding a job locally in Northwest Arkansas probably wouldn't be that difficult. The area is nice and is completely different from the Arkansas stereotype - the other parts of Arkansas, with some exceptions, however is a different story.
The clout of the degree outside of Arkansas is probably rather limited so I don't know if it travels well.
Regarding the school overall and not just the law school, its your typical SEC school. Fayetteville is basically a college town and the school is pretty much the epicenter of the town with Dixon street being the main thoroughfare for activity.
Also the people drive funny here.
