What other "more reputable schools" are you thinking of attending? I did not go there, but I am from RI and know some grads. The grads I know are happy about thier education and they all got jobs. From what I have heard, it is no different the any other T4 (hiring is pretty regional).
I have been to the campus, which is very nice, and the town of Bristol is a cool place to live or go to school. It is is the only school in RI, which is both good and bad - good because there are a lot of opportunities, bad because the RI and SE MA legal market is flooded with new lawyers every year. There are a good amount of RWU grads working at RI's bigger firms (which aren't big in the BIGLAW sense), but there are a lot of graduates every year to compete with, and its seems a lot look to stay in the RI area.
Upside, from what I can tell, is that the school is relativiley new, so it has some potential to move upward (whereas school like Suffolk and NE SOL have been T3/T4 forever), education seems solid, they do place attornies in RI firms with regularity.
. They are always hosting events for RI/MA attorneys and are actively involved in the legal community around here.
Downside, alumni network is not near as big a either of those two other school, especially in MA. In MA you also have to compete with Harvard, BU, BC, NE.
My thoughts, if you want to go to law school and your choice is between $ at RWU and paying at another T3/T4 take the free ride. If you choice is between $ at RWu and paying for a T25, go to a T25. If your coice is between $ and a lower T1 or T2, it depends on the school and what you want to do when you graduate.
