Great school

5.0 of 5 stars

July 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Smart student body
Great clinics
Good opportunities outside of the classroom (externships, 1L summer programs, etc.)

Downers

St. Louis / Midwest
Career Services Office (CSO) could be better

Comments

The Career Services Office (CSO) could be better--you'll want to be sure to focus early on the markets and cities you want if you don't want to end up in the Midwest.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great academic environment, but St. Louis is not so great for new law graduates

4.0 of 5 stars

December 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Great academic environment and professors
Low living expense in a mid-west city

Downers

Career service isn't very helpful
Limited OCI opportunity
Bad local economy

Comments

In terms of cost, spending three years in St. Louis will save you thousands compared to most major cities.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Excellent School with Few Shortcomings

5.0 of 5 stars

September 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Collegial
Quietely competitive
Generous financial aid
Star professors
Good employment opportunities

Downers

Everyone transfers to HYS/CCN
Politically correct
Turnover in CSO

Comments

Not a T14, but you can still get looks from Vault 100 firms if you're top 25/33%. I am just inside the top 25% and had loads of interviews. The school has an excellent reputation among firms.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Washu Law reviewed by rising 2L

4.0 of 5 stars

May 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Professors-talented and informative
Law students-friendly, not too competitive

Downers

Campus-too green and isolated
Career services-unhelpful, just wants everyone to have some summer job regardless of quality

Comments

It's a good school, but make sure you have significant merit aid if you want to go to WashU.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great School

5.0 of 5 stars

May 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Collegial atmosphere, approachable professors, and the alumni base is engaged and more than willing to help students out as they search for jobs.

Downers

The Career Services office could do more to ensure that students find employment that is to their liking. Too often students end up doing much of the job search on their own because the CSO did not do anything.

Comments

Think very carefully about the market in which would like to work post graduation. If you are interested in anything outside of St. Louis, Chicago, NY, and DC, WashU may not be your best option.

Would You Recommend

Yes
