I am trying to decide where to send my security deposit and have had trouble finding real information on Quinnipiac. What is the Hamden area like? How is the faculty? What were your impressions when you visited? Can anyone elaborate? Thanks.

The campus is in a rural area, but both the campus and the law building are sleek and modern. The campus is directly across from a a beautiful state park. Hamden is pretty small, but New Haven is just 15 minutes away. New Haven is a pretty cool mid sized city with theatre, music, and the such (Yale Law School). There are also other mid sized towns near-by with available housing. They don't have on campus housing and their is not much (if any) within walking distance, so you will be commuting. I visited it twice and really liked it. Heading there in the fall (I hope the the traditional negative posters can refrain from criticizing my decision- though I'm not holding my breath).

I've only explored the area on google maps and street view but I really like what I see. I love the idea of living in a semi-rural area but with access to nyc and boston. I really wish I could visit Quinnipiac. Do you have any other information on the area? What is the school itself like? Are the people nice?

Everyone I met was real nice. The low student to teacher ratio (10:1) is emphasized a lot and the professors I met seemed pretty cool. I only met a couple of students, but it seemed like a nice crowd. Not sure what else to tell ya, but if you have specific questions I can try to help.

There is a train station in New Haven that can get you to NYC in under 2 hours and Boston is about the same in a car, so that's pretty cool.

Is it strange that I was both waitlisted at Quinnipiac and University of Illinois?

I did a "chat" with Quinnipiac yesterday, included both admissions officers and 1L & 2L students. The students seemed pretty happy there and emphasized the same things that were just said by the poster above. One guy was doing criminal law, and said that he worked during his second year in an externship with the State's Attorneys office. He said it was the best time of his life, albeit "a bit scary to be arguing to raise a person's bond with him staring right at you in handcuffs." lol. He did a lot of hands on work himself, did negotiations for pleas, did some legal drafting, etc. Sounded great. One of the girls that was going there did the summer abroad prgram in Ireland, and she loved it. They said that anybody "in good standing" can go.

i am currently finishing my undergraduate at quinnipiac and it is a very nice area. new haven is a decent city and very close and getting to nyc is an easy 1.5 hour train ride. housing in the area is not cheap but from my understanding scholarships are pretty easy to obtain, so that may cut down some debt.

I was going to on that chat but I had to do something else. Did they tell you when we can expect the first round of decisions?
