Here is another forum discussion about St. Mary's with mostly negative reviews. http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=56
As a former student, I can tell you first hand it is not a well-respected school, which in this economy does not guarantee you anything but loans with no way to repay them upon graduation. Law firm recruiters need to lighten up and hire St. Mary's grads. I say if you pass the Bar, you pass the Bar, and that should be the number one factor in hiring people. Don't go to St. Mary's expecting an offer from Fulbright & Jaworski down the road. I wish first year grades didn't matter so much.
Do a google search for the different variations of the school's name (St'Mary's law San Antonio / St. Mary's University School of Law....) and look for lawsuits and problems reported by former students and faculty. The administration is terrible and ruining the school. This used to be a very good school, but internal problems have been the reason for its decline. Faculty a a whole is ok, not bad but not top-notch. A lot of the students are great, and I feel sorry for us that our school has set us up for failure. Find a school with similar admissions criteria and go there, even if it is out of state. St. Mary's is in a crappy area and is way over priced. For $30k/yr plus living expenses you should be proud of where you went to school and have a good chance for a GOOD job waiting for you upon graduation.
