MN law schools

Postby ajmn » Fri Mar 16, 2012 3:54 pm

I'm trying to decide what MN law school to go to and am wondering if anyone has any advice. Here's some information on my choices -
Hamline - Full scholarship (2.9 GPA)
St. Thomas - $33,000 a year (2.0 GPA)
William Mitchell - Full scholarship (2.5 GPA)
UMN - Still waiting

I thought I'd go to WM but I've heard St. Thomas is doing well and getting a good reputation so now I'm not sure what to do. Another thing to consider is that I'm not religious so I'm a little apprehensive about going to a Catholic school and am wondering if this is a valid concern or something I shouldn't worry about. I appreciate any advice/feed back

Hamline is out considering your offer from WM.

Unless you get into UMN with a significant scholarship I would be very hesitant to take on the debt.

I've heard that religion doesn't play much part in UST's law school. I went there for a bit in undergrad and found it to be a presence in the curriculum though. I wouldn't expect it to be a big deal though.

What's the curve at William Mitchell? If you stand any significant chance of losing your scholarship there then go to UST.

Otherwise, I'd say just go visit the schools and see which one feels more like home. You should note carefully the employment prospects coming out of these schools, UST overstated theirs on the latest USNWR rankings: ... -u-s-news/

I vote for William Mitchell (if you don't get into UMN):
