Did you live close to the school? Do many students receive significant need-based financial aid (other than loans). Feel free to answer as many or as few of these as you want. Thanks again!
1) faculty and classes are generally fantastic. A few bad experiences but generally there are really amazing educators at uconn. After your first year you can control who you want to work with, so you can kind of avoid the few duds.
2) no/kind of. I went the public interest route and had sort of a unique situation. Had an offer by early august after graduation though.
3) I think my whole class feels generally satisfied, but plenty of us are still trying to land jobs even now. That's the reality of the legal hiring market.
4) first year I lived close. 2L and 3L I moved about 30 minutes away. The benefits of living close aren't that great. You learn pretty quickly that there's no need to actually be on campus or in the library while you're studying.
5) yeah I think a fair amount? Not really sure what other people's situations were.
