“Great School”
February 2017CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Practical courses and learning. The atmosphere is very inviting and inspiring.

Downers

Law schools in general have gotten very expensive and professors who are tenured with giant salaries are a downer.

Comments

If you want to practice in Southern California then you should go to this school.

“Low Job Prospects; Beautiful Weather”
April 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Sunny San Diego is a gorgeous city to live in. The people are wonderful and the city has a great vibe, with lots of tech companies and startups.

Downers

Even in a good economy, USD Law School had poor job prospects. Now imagine how bad it is in this economy.

Comments

You need to get a full ride or go to another school. Don't roll the dice on this school.

Academics

When I was a student, the fixed curve was fairly harsh - pegged for mostly C grades, a handful of B and D grades and only a few A grades plus mandatory F grades based on the size of each class. That curve also had the highest possible grade of 90, which makes little sense. Luckily, that fixed cure has since been softened so that most students will earn a B and professors are no longer required to fail anyone.

Students are more collaborative and helpful than competitive, which makes USD a much nicer place to study the law.

San Diego is America's finest city.

Quality of Life

San Diego is a laid-back beautiful beach city. San Diego's laid-back and friendly attitude seeps into the law school. I found most of the students, staff and faculty to be friendly and approachable. I never felt crushing competition and unbearable pressure at USD.
