Thanks in advance!
Yeah, it seemed like Davis had a continuation of undergrad feel. Not necessarily a bad thing overall, but it might be a little awkward at first for married and/or older students. I know they're there, question is, how well do they fit in?
This was my question when coming to Davis too. I like my anonymity on here, so I will leave my class year out. I am married with kids and personally chose Davis over Hastings because of the town. I don't know if you have kids or not, but this place is perfect for families. Every elementary school in Davis is a "California Distinguished School" and there are tons of parks. I know quite a few married people in school without kids too. I was a little older than the rest of the class coming in, but not much. I didn't feel out of place or anything, but it is such a small school that it is kind of weird when you see a lot of people dating and breaking up. It kind of reminded me of HS my first year, but after that it kind of calmed down. As far as SOs are concerned, I think the only ones that don't hang out with the rest of the law school students are the ones that live out of town. My wife hangs out with some of the women in the law school without me, and we occasionally go out together for bar review. Then again, there are some couples that I tend to forget which one is in law school because they both hang out around campus all the time.
Thank you for your anecdotal response. It's reassuring to hear that your wife hangs around with other law students (without you for that matter ) We don't have children yet, so my wife was worried that she would be lonely in Davis.
.... Now...... if they would only accept me
My wife has the exact same worry! It sounds like Davis seems open to SOs though, which is nice.
