4.0 of 5 stars
Job opportunities, elective program, support services, location, prestige, reputation, alumni network.
Competition, grade structure, lack of Latin honors/GPA, size of LLM class.
It will set you up perfectly for a job in big law, especially in NYC.

Great selection of courses, clinics, study abroad opportunities. I felt as if I could take my legal education in any direction I wanted.
Social atmosphere was a bit staid - very cliquish. However, the school is large enough that you can avoid the cliques if you try.
If you graduate from here, no matter where in the class, you'll be able to pursue whatever career you want. At the end of the day, that's why we go to a law school
Awesome reputationIntelligent and well-connected facultyTop-tier classmates but not overly intense or competitive Diligent career services
Needs to get better at preparing students for the ever-changing legal market
Bring your A+ game and be ready to foster a sense of community because your classmates will be your future colleagues
Really great opportunities to connect with potential employers (law firms especially) and to do well in recruiting.
Large class; competitive. Professors not always great. Building/library not the best.
If you want to work in big law, especially in NYC, you should have no trouble if you go to CLS. Even if you have mediocre grades, you will still likely be able to get into a decent firm.
