I just tend to be optimistic in trusting that the university simply isn't going to throw away its huge new investment by not supplying the law school with similar tools for success.
they can have all the tools they want.
A little over 60% of USNWR is reputation + gpa +lsat.
Thats something that no amount of money or tools can get.
I want to echo the sentiment above... its a good school, and I'm sure it will give you a good education... just please make sure you know what you are getting into in terms of a financial investment.
Also... being new is actually NOT good. It means you have no alumni network to help you get hired.
If you're going to quote me, do it well. Read the rest of that paragraph you quoted.
The lack of an alumni network is at least partially offset by its preceptor program, which gives first-year students contacts and hands-on experience with practicing attorneys (even through the attorey general's office). I didn't even argue in support of its newness; I acknowledged the lack of an alumni network and outlined steps being taken to improve its ranking.
