Overall Experience: My school had a lot of opportunity but doesn't advertise well to students. Some students are very engaged while others are more laid back.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm is located at the St. George Hotel in Brooklyn Heights which is about a 10 to 15 min subway trip. The campus has a fully operational dining hall and the dorm has a huge kitchen. Both the campus and the dorms have the basic amenities even though the dorm's rooms are small. As it is in New York, the cost is a bit expensive, but that is the price of living there.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The campus location in Tribeca gives the students access to all sorts of entertainment including pubs, bars and restaurants. Also the stations for the 1 and 2 subway lines are within walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are not really any parties on campus. There are "gatherings" where affluent employers and donors intermingle with students while sipping wine and other beverages.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are gyms all over the place, however, the law school itself does not have any sports teams. They do have Mock Trial team that competes nationally.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As it is Manhattan, security is top-notch and there is a police and fire department about 1 block down from the campus. There is really no fear of crime in this area.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is not really a Greek Life as it is a Law School, but many use that past connection to make friends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: great course selection and amazing professors

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: there are lots of career services and recruitment functions on campus

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: sexual assault is not an issue on campus

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am happy here. faculty and staff are great and care about their students and their success

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: As it is located in Manhattan, NYLS has a very diverse community and many foreign (non-US) students attend the school. There is a diversity of different clubs that relate to ethnic backgrounds, but many are mixed. NYLS draws from all kinds of economic background and does not show a predisposition to favor any one type of background. It rather focuses on the nature and character of the candidate. Although it does not state outright, the political atmosphere of the school is definitely democratic/liberal leaning. Cannot say that there is a religion that dominates the school, but if I had to state one, it would be "Law." What I mean is that there is no time nor need for religious leanings, because once you enter the school, you are engaged/married to the Law and its enforcement.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Focus of the school is Law so the curriculum focus is law including the Federal and State laws and regulations. The Staff and professors are retired or semi-active lawyers who spend their time teaching the next generation what it means to be a successful lawyer. Like any law school, the workload consists of reading, understanding and applying case law to a variety of situations.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: As it is a law school, everyone is highly competitive and the policy enforcement greatly controls any such drug issue. I personally do not do drugs or drink alcohol, but I know that many in year are anti-drug use.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although the course load is heavy, NYLS offers a wide variety of fields of law and specialties. The class sizes depend on the topic but usually range from the smallest of about 10 to 15 and then up 80 for lector hall classes. Different teachers have different teaching styles but the vast majority lecture or infuse application exercises.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although not ranked highly in the "Best Law Schools of America". New York Law School's location gives it's students access to a wide variety of potential employers plus the Supreme Court and Appellate Divisions are a short walk away.As it is located in lower Manhattan, almost all of the employers are highly ranked and have sent recruiters to campus weekly.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: NY Law provided me with free preliminary courses.

5 College Junior

Diversity: My school has been declared as one of the most diverse and accepting school in the country. There is a lot of minority teachers and students.

3 College Junior

Weather: When the weather is great, I actually feel great being at school since I am not jealous how nice it is outside, which will motivate me to do more work so when it is nice out, I will not have a lot of studying to do.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school has provided me with a great education, even though the school's rankings are very low.

5 College Junior

Administration: The school is very strict with many academic policies. There is a zero tolerance policy for cheating. On the other hand, their policy for drinking in the dorms is not very strict since all students are above the age of 21.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Being in NYC, the night life is amazing here. While the school does not provide entertainment in regards to nightlife, the city, itself does provide many options.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Many law schools do not provide housing and the fact that there is housing for law students is a plus. There is security that guards the entrance and each room has showers and a kitchen.

5 College Junior

Technology: Besides the fact that printing costs 10 cents, the school's technology is extremely up to date.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The school is in a city with many options, but during the evening period there are not many options available due to the area the school is located.
