3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wish I didn't go to law school but medical school instead. It's very competitive and only 10% can get anA on an exam no matter how good everyone was, then 25% can get a B and the rest must receive a C,D, or F. There is only one chance for a grade, the final exam which are way too long over 4 hours and that you grade for the class without any other assignments for points. I like a class setting where there are homework reading exams papers discussions, etc a variety to keep me occupied interested and knowledgeable. The students are very rude treating each other as lesser than them because of the ranking system. No one will help anyone because you are all competing against one another. Many students have daddy's and mom's who are lawyers and got in law schoolm because of that and think they are better than you and smarter than you err. I came from a disadvantaged backgrounds abd if I share that with anyone then they treat me like trash. there isn't very much academic support. You just have to learn how to relearn all over again because law school isn't like undergrad. It's analytical and unclear. You can bend the law in your favor. Nothing is certain in law school. It cost me $175,000 and I'm in serous debt and it wasn't worth it.

Parking: There is one student parking garage but it's also open to the public so there is rarely a spot. It's about 2 blinks from school and 4 blink from housing in an unsafe area to walk in. There are parking attendants but one at a time who is doing everything so when you want to pay you have to find him or wait for him and it is expensive to park there

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The school had one building called the tower with about 30 floors full of apartmebts but you either fat the bedroom or the living room as your room, there isn't enough space like communal areas. There is wait list that takes too long- the building is old and in a bad area but gas security. The housing is extremely expensive and no housing assistance is offered by the school.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: The scholarships are very specific requiringbyou to be a resident of a city or state, to be a certain type of latter, to work at a particular organization, be a specific race... They are not based on financial need at all. They don't offer a very large amount avid the application is very lengthy. The school doesn't offer any of its own scholarships.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There are no school teams but there are reserved times to play basketball, do yoga, or work out in the gym and the faculty and students meet and do it together. Otherwise the school is not very active in sports
