“First Year Experience”
June 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Great Professors, Nice Library, and Facilities are clean and fairly new.

Downers

Poor resources, CDO, Dropping LSAT and GPA scores are flooding the school with less qualified applicants.

Comments

If you are looking to get into public interest or potentially business law, then this school is a good fit. However, if you are looking into federal positions/ large law firms, retake the LSAT or choose elsewhere.

Mix of Socratic method with some modern powerpoint doctrinal presentation as well. Most classes focused on an open class discussion.

Quality of Life

Good location. Facilities are above average and technology services are fairly modern. Safe and secure.

Admissions

LSDAS online application was required and personal paper applications were not welcome. Typical essay questions regarding why I wanted to go to school there and what I hoped to get out of the experience.

First year is the same at all law schools. Most classes are a combination of lecture and Socratic method. Suffolk students are less competitive with each other than are students at other schools, I believe.

Quality of Life

Boston is a rather expensive city, but affordable places to live are fairly close by, with good public transportation available. Since the school is right on the Common, in the center of the city, it is reasonably safe.

Admissions

The usual for a law school: LSAT, common application, essay, FAFSA and Need Access financial aid application which submits financial information for campus scholarships.

The socratic method is used first year, and it is effective. The school is more geared toward a practical approach as opposed to theoretical. The clinical programs available for second and third year students are great and provide a unique law school experience.

Quality of Life

The law school is fabulous, no complaints about anything.

Admissions

Application is standard.

Many of the evening faculty were practicing in their fields and provided unique and valuable perspectives.

As in all schools, some teachers are better than others, but consistent among most is their practical knowledge of the material and relation of topics to real-life scenarios. Suffolk is best for training their students to learn, think, and act like lawyers rather than review history and theory of various areas of law.

Quality of Life

library and classrooms have numerous outlets or internet jacks that need repair. Library cubes should be cleaned daily - they are filthy.

Admissions

Similar process as with most law schools.

Application process is like every other law school. We had to register through LSAC and take the LSAT. There was an essay and financial aid and scholarship opportunities were available.
