Thanks M16. It doesn't look like most ppl on this board have much of an opinion about the school, so your feedback was great.It may sound ignorant but I just dont want to end up in a bad area on a daily basis.
I'm from the Detroit area. Mercy is seen as a commuter school with a decent reputation in its own backyard. Michigan State University is about an hour away from Detroit and its law school has a slightly better reputation... kind of a trickle-down effect from the parent institution. It offers a JD/Canadian LLB. I'm not sure about the details, but here's the website: www.msu.eduThere is high crime in Detroit. Parts of the city look like they've been bombed (they haven't). The suburbs run the gammut from poor to posh, and most of them are perfectly livable. Most white-collar people who work or go to school in Detroit commute from the suburbs. Driving is not a problem, which is nice because public transportation is virtually nonexistant. The highways will get you where you need to go and parking in Detroit is not that bad... I mean, it's not Manhattan.
What's a commuter school?
