Library was spacious and above average for where I've been. Small class size, and I think the student/teacher ratio is like 11:1.
The OK/neutral: The building, and campus. Students Orgs were OK for my interests, but not the best.
The bad: Tuition could raise quite a bit ("10-20%"), I'm skeptical of how ANY school, could boast 95% employment, especially when it was less than that in previous years and has increased in this economy. I may be wrong, but I just don't believe it.
Overall I could be happy there, but cost and lack of specialization in advocacy/litigation/criminal law areas would have to be sought out by me, as opposed to getting a certificate or program in those that is offered elsewhere.
According to USNEWS only 44% of TU grads work in a full-time legal job. Only 16% of THOSE grads who work in the private sector reported a salary.
You need to finish in the top 10% for a decent private firm job, methinks.
Yeah, I think its about top 10-20 for any school >50 right now.
Yeah it really doesn't look like Tulsa is worse than its piers, but I wouldn't say its equal >50 out. SMU has 30% grads from last year start over 100k, while at Tulsa only 15% or 20% of grads are even working at private firms, the vast majority of those making 50k. I'm thinking about going to Tennessee where they had 86% of grads working in a full-time legal job. Just sayin in case someone wants to retake the LSAT and go towards greener pastures next year. I recommend going over the full report at USNEWS
