Law School in the Twin Cities...
« on: February 27, 2009, 11:06:24 PM »
I've heard that UST tends to lean to the right politically, while Hamline leans to the left... can anybody elaborate on this and the impact that it may or may not have on the education.

I've heard some UST profs bring the Jeebus into class.

And their motto is something like "Bridging the Gap Between Faith and Law," and it's plastered all over their promo material. They're not really subtle with it. And you probably won't find any chapter of "Law Students for Reproductive Justice" there.

I don't know if you noticed but William Mitchell has a tier 4 next to it.  Why do you think they are at tier four if they are the second best law school in Minnesota?

Do not go to a tier 4 school.  I went to a top 20 school and I have had issues with my degree.  I can't emphasize enough how important it is to go to a higher ranked school, even if the lower ranked school has been around longer.

I'm heading to UofM, but friends of mine in the TC area all agree that WM has a lot of cred, more than I've heard for UST and Hamline.  Not everything is always about the rankings of a third-rate, almost-defunct, news magazine.
I'm in a lynch mob?  I had no idea.  This is really worrying; I really don't have time for another extra-curricular activity.
