How did you like your professors? Is there on campus housing for law students? I am planning to practice in California. Do you think that by graduating from SU, I may have problem passing bar or finding job in the future? Thanks
I thought my professors were great; knowledgeable with real world experience. Honestly, I don't have anything bad to say about any of my professors. But you should take a look at the faculty profiles on the website and see for yourself.
There is on campus housing at the Arch Bishop Thomas Murphy Apartments. Its a bargain for living in downtown seattle, and they usually will pair you up with other grad students, so you wont be mixed in with ugrads. They are decent apartments; nothing special, but nice.
I dont know too much about the CA bar (other than its level of difficulty), but in terms of finding a job, SU is definitely a regional school. I believe that 90% + grads work in the greater seattle area or WA after graduation (dont quote me on that, but its a large % nonetheless). Even then finding a job seems tough. There is obvious competition with UW, and of course you have T14 grads coming out to practice in the pacific NW as well. SU holds its own, but outside of Seattle seems a little tough. I would think this would be one of your biggest concerns since you want to be in CA. You can probably check out the OCI firms online since you have been accepted, or speak with someone in the career services office, but in my opinion, that office is pretty terrible.
Other than that, SU is a great school. Very down to earth, good rep in the area, in a great city.
