Mississippi College School of Law or Cleveland State

Postby KatieBloom » Sat Apr 30, 2011 4:02 pm

Are there any law students who have attended either one of these school who can give feedback on their experiences... good or bad? Trying to make my final decision on which law school I should attend. Mississippi College School of Law (Tier 4) or Cleveland State University -Cleveland Marshall School of Law (Tier 3)????

Also no one can answer this effectively without you saying how much it's gonna cost to go to each, and also where you want to live.

If you aren't comfortable starting your own firm, don't go to either.

Probably neither. Also, I didn't vote, since your poll is missing a third but obvious choice.

Yep. Ole Miss lists 16 from the class of 2009 as going solo and 22 as "firm size unknown." Count these two together and you have around 25% of the class (assuming 22 are solos because we just don't know). And remember Mississippi College is like 30k while Ole Miss is 11k.

Cleveland State is okay but Ohio is horribly glutted with schools.

Unless one of these is with significant money and no stipulations...well, I think you know the answer.

Ole Miss if you want to work in Mississippi. Mississippi over Ohio any day of the week.

Ole Miss isn't an option here.

Cleveland's market isn't very good right now. Most recent C-M grads that I know are NOT employed full-time in the legal field. It's a 3rd tier school in a state that already has too many law schools. I tend to agree that 'neither' is the best option, but if someone is holding a gun to your head, then go to Mississippi College. Better to be unemployed in a warm climate.
