Excellent School with Excellent opportunities

5.0 of 5 stars

August 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The atmosphere was not overly competitive, and the professors were top notch.

Downers

Although located in the heart of Greenwich Village may be appealing to some, the lack of a real college campus was a negative for me.

Comments

If you are intending to work in New York City, there is no better school to attend. Employers basically beat down your door to interview you.

Great culture and professors. Less competitive culture and more about learning.

I think that there should be a great emphasis on certain requirements such as corporations.

Comments

NYU Law Review

February 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The very collegial atmosphere of the school. Students are not cut throat and more than willing to help each other out or share outlines.

Downers

Although all the professors are brilliant, some don't make the best teachers.

Comments

Great T-10 school with laid back back classmates. Also excellent place to study international law and take classes with LLMs from all over the world.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Uppers

Challenging. A lot of transactional classes. Practical approach. Good career prospects. Many extra curricular opportunities.

Downers

Not much guidance on course selection and work load. Not enough career resources for international LLMs.

Comments

Don't make it harder than it already is. Take easier classes and a few in your field of interest. Don't take too many hard ones at the same time.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great program, too much work and peer pressure

There are ample resources for any kind of law that you'd like to study, though the curriculum trends toward public interest. If you want to be a corporate lawyer, you can make your way here, but if you want to be a public defender, work for a non-profit or work for the government, there are so many offerings you won't adequately be able to take everything you want to.

Downers

Given the emphasis on public interest, it's awfully expensive. Most of the people I went to school with ended up at big law firms because of crushing student loan debt. Many will stay there. Most of us went to law school to study public interest law, but it's hard to practice this with so much debt. I think the school should offer more opportunities such as part time programs or scholarships for public interest work.

Comments

Studying in New York can be wonderful but can also make it difficult to focus. If you want a more studious experience, go to Cornell or Michigan. In Greenwich Village, there's always something else going on that can keep you from hitting the books, for better or worse.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Top Law School

4.0 of 5 stars

March 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Great classes, top-notch faculty, wide variety of employment options, excellent location, friendly community

Downers

Cost – like most law schools it costs too much, unequal spread of scholarship money (handful of students receive full-tuition scholarships, most receive nothing or pittance)

Comments

NYU offers an excellent education in an exciting city. The school's reputation and the work of the various counselors and career services administrators open many employment opportunities unavailable at lower-ranked schools. If you are sure you want to practice law, it's a great place to get the degree to do so.

Interesting students from a variety of backgrounds. Self-selection of people who want to be in downtown NYC - seems to draw a different type of student. Generally very good professors. Good facilities. Unbeatable location. Outstanding employment opportunities.

Downers

Extremely expensive, in terms of both tuition and cost of living. Very difficult to get through 3 years without a high debt load. May be hard to focus on studying in such a great location if you're distractable.

Comments

I couldn't be more satisfied with my choice of law school. Received a great legal education, came away with outstanding career prospects and made a number of lifelong friends to boot.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great school, Great Professors

Virtually all of my professors were interested in the subject matter.

Downers

Lack of a campus. Yes, I know, the village is a wonderful campus. Still, it a college campus it is not.

Comments

Renowned for its placement office, or for the ability to land a job in a top law firm in New York city.

Would You Recommend

Yes
