I turned down admittance into the University of Houston Law Center (#43 US NSN &WR I think, and I'm from Houston TX) to attend UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law (#82 USN&WR).
As I don't have a point of reference to compare it with other law schools I can't say how it's better or worse. BUT what I can say is that when interacting with both schools, I always got return calls from UNLV, I always received email replies promptly, when I had a question I could call and was always able to speak to someone who typically could answer my question immediately, compared to UH where I had to leave a message and got called back two days later, or if I had a question via email I got a response two weeks later, etc.
All of the instructors are very approachable, a couple of them invite students to lunch with them twice a week to ask any question you want of them (dutch of course). The faculty consists of graduates & previous faculty from Yale, Harvard, Cornell, and from other highly acclaimed law schools. When they were told that they could start a particular program at UNLV that they've always wanted to start but couldn't at their current school because the senior faculty member had been there 40 years and was on life support wouldn't let them, they jumped at the chance. Need help with an outline on a Saturday? There are hired 2L student helpers for one program that are there on Saturday, as well as all week.
The facilities are state of the art. Every classroom has it's own computer controlled media center with a touch screen that the professor can bring up overhead drop down projector screen with digital projector, computer, vcr, cable tuner, can even adjust the room's lighting, and the desks all have popup power outlets and Ethernet jacks, as well as wifi access all around the building. Every student hutch, study area, study table, everywhere has hidden popup power outlets and ethernet jacks.
Is anyone else out there who thinks like me?
