MissP - Brooklyn get tons of bad press on other sites for poor job placement.  Do you see many of those complaints among the students there?

Frankly, no.  I know people who have federal clerkships and biglaw jobs and government jobs and non-profit jobs, and they all seem pretty happy.  I do know some people who are still looking, but then again, I have friends at Yale who are still looking too.  None of them seem despairing, and they are all pretty confident they'll find something based on their experiences in the job market thus far.  Most of my friends are top-half, on a journal or moot court, but not necessarily top 10%/LR/etc.

I do hear a lot of complaints that the career services office is overly focused on placements in big firms and therefore ignores people who are at the bottom of the class.  Since I have never once met with my career service advisor (there's a dedicated public service person to whom I would turn for any advice or assistance), I can't comment on this too extensively.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

I'm going to visit on Saturday. I'll snap a couple pictures and post my impressions.

Thanks..I appreciate that...I'd just really like to also hear from people who have graduated from or currently attend Villanova Law School.  I just would like to get a sense of the students, profs, and quality of life before I make a decision and send in a deposit to either school.  They're about equal on ranking and money after, so this isn't as much of a concern to me.  I really just want to know where I would enjoy my time more, and where I'd feel more welcomed/happy.

Hi - I'm a 2L at VLS - I don't have a lot of time since we're in the midst of finals/take home exams. PM me if you have any specific questions, and I'll try to get back to you quickly.

Also, check out my old posts from last year. I provided info to prospective students last year in a number of posts - including a breakdown of school's employment figures.

Best of luck.
