Heading to GSU for Fall 05?
« on: March 09, 2005, 04:18:36 PM »
Is anyone else thinking seriously about attending GSU in Fall 05?  Or are there any current GSU law students who could tell me what they think about the school?

Hey! Not a current student, but graduated a few years ago (2001). I can't say enough good things about GSU COL! I think you will find that it is nationally rated as one of the best values in the country for public legal education.

I'm looking to practice at a big law firm in Atlanta when I graduate.  Can you give me your thoughts on going to GSU vs. Emory.  (I haven't heard back from Emory yet, so it may not even matter).  I'm leaning on going to GSU even if I get into Emory because I have to pay for it myself and there is a huge price difference. 

All I have heard about GSU law is really great...any specifics that you can give me on GSU would be much appreciated  (your experience, etc.)

Thanks!

I know several GSU grads.  Many have gone on to work at Atlanta's biggest firms.  I know one guy who went from their PT program to the biggest firm in town.  Of course most of the Emory grads I know have also gone to these firms, I would say that the big firms still go deeper into the classes of UGA and Emory compared to GSU.

For any admitted 1L's to GSU, there has been a Yahoo Group forum started for GSU COL class of 2008 if you're interested:
