Arizona State U

Postby 5678 » Wed Sep 18, 2013 5:37 am

Hi all -

If I go to ASU law school planning to stay in Arizona (probably Phoenix) what would my prospects for work be? What kind of salary could I expect? Would ASU be my best bet outside of top schools for employment in Phoenix? Thanks.

Not awful, not great. Excluding going to the T14 and spending your summers in Phoenix, ASU is probably your best bet. I wouldn't go without a decent scholarship, though.

It's a decent option if you're in state and get a significant scholarship.

I am in neighboring New Mexico. I love Arizona (but not enough to move there.)

Arizona's economy cratered and has yet to fully recover but I believe that there is still no better place to start a legal career and make a life. I have to back off a bit on my earlier preachments that the area is badly underserved. Law grads from the coasts have begun to arrive here in the Southwest in growing numbers so competition over the next few years will undoubtedly increase. ASU tuition has gotten awfully expensive at $26K/year for residents and a whopping $41K/year for non-residents so I agree with the previous poster that you might not want to go without being a resident and getting some substantial aid. In-state is still a lot cheaper at ASU than at, say, the UC system but salaries are lower in Arizona too.

Good luck!

EDIT: Advice not strong enough. Do NOT even THINK about paying full non-resident tuition at ASU. If you are bound and determined to go to ASU and they don't offer a HUGE chunk of cash, wait tables in Flagstaff or Yuma for a year first and THEN apply.
