I haven't had the chance to visit yet and am also waiting on 4 more schools, all of which are possibilities. Nevertheless, I have my heart set on attending SLU just because I have known for about a month now that I am accepted and am in the kind of mental preparation to go there.
I still haven't visited (I am a west coast girl), so I can't give any personal opinions. From friends of mine that have visited (also west coast/las vegas people), they all really liked it. I have heard over and over about how there are bad areas of town (some of which are by the school), but overall mostly good things about the area.
It's hard because I would like to move back to San Diego, but I know SLU doesn't have a huge rep outside of MO, but I think that unless you are going to do BigLaw, you aren't completely trapped in MO. Still, all of this is from opinions and hearsay. I would love any current SLU students to give some advice.
