The law school consists of two buildings, not overly impressive (as compared with some of the buildings on campus) but they are nicer then some of have seen. The library was newish and nice. The campus is quite large and there are some really great facilities ( I figure if i am going to pay 20-30 grand, I might as well have access to athletic facilities, additional libraries, etc., which you cannot get at a place like Albany.) As far as the city is concerned, it all depends on what you are looking for. Because of the large university population, i think the city has a lot of things a city of that size otherwise would not have. I didn't do too much touring, as it was the last leg of my trip. There are definetly some parts of Syracuse that have seen better days, and it will get really cold in the winter. However, upstate NY is beautiful, close to Lake Placid in winter and Adirondacks in summer, not that law school will give us a lot of free time. That being said, i highly recommend that you visit. I liked it and excited to attend, but i could see why the weather/location might be discouraging to some. If you like it, i guess i will see you in Syracuse in August!
