Every school in the country has "ambulance chasers" and divorce attorneys (family law is as legit as anything else). I know of a UNH student who was kept over t14s the year the market imploded. So what? That is also just my experience. Don't base your decisions on anecdotal nonsense.


Exactly, and you guys don't have to, the data is right up there!

For those who are attending or have received offers, would you mind sharing what you got on your LSAT and what your GPA was, and subsequently how much you were offered with me? You can PM me if you want. I'd greatly appreciate it. I have a 4.0 GPA and a 160 LSAT score, and would be interested in going here if I got a decent amount of aid.

For those of you who are going into IP, and patent especially, who are considering UNH with money vs. i.e. American and George Mason at sticker, consider the following stats from LawSchoolTransparency:

Jobs requiring bar passage: ~60% for all 3 schools.
Employment Score: ~60% for UNH, ~53% for the other two.
Large Firm Score: ~16% for UNH, ~12% for the other two.
Salaries: Data for AU is really sparse, but for GMU ~26% are making >70k, at UNH ~19% are making >62.5k. I don't know how the cost of living for the two sets of graduates compares.

The one stat that is ugly for UNH is the "non-employed" number, which is 25.2%. It's pretty high for AU also, ~16%, whereas it's only ~3% for GMU. However, if you're looking at money from UNH, you're likely bright enough to get median grades or better, and if you're additionally patent-bar eligible (which is the only reason you'd be seriously considering UNH), unemployment seems a highly unlikely result. Bottom line, if you're looking at big money from UNH and are patent-bar eligible, you should definitely take it over anything outside the T20 (T25?) without big money.

Otoh, if you're stuck in the mid-atlantic and choosing between GMU and AU, there's no question that you should choose GMU. Tuition is cheaper, you might get in-state, and the employment numbers are either comparable or better at GMU.

HTH all those engineer 3.0/165 splitters out there.
