Thoughts/comments on ASU?
« on: April 05, 2006, 01:02:57 PM »
I'm considering ASU law school and I'd like to learn more about it.  There are several positive attributes about it along with some negatives as well.

Here's my short list.  If you have anything at all to add, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Positives:

-Low tuition (compared to other schools)
-Fairly high ranking (#58 on US News)
-One of two ABA accredited schools in Arizona
-Warm weather
-Good social atmosphere (possibly too good)
-Law, Science and Technology program (which I'm interested in)

Negatives:

-Bad undergrad reputation
-Possible job market isolation (in AZ)

Pro: large city/state capital with only one law school means great summer job opportunities

Con: blowback from undergrad rep and also-ran status to UA

I wouldn't say you'll be "stuck" in Arizona forever, but if you're dead set on living somewhere else and can go to school in that area, it might be a better bet.  And there is much more to do in the area than drink; you can also play lots of golf (while drinking).
