Look, this is a totally subjective thing. If you think the Stanford campus is beautiful, that's great. (Really.) I just don't care for it. Still, its aesthetic issues aside, I wouldn't hesitate to go to Stanford law. It's an amazing school.
Wow, you spelled "Tresidder" right. Did you go to Stanford UG?
No. But I'm very familiar with the area. And, years ago, I had a job that involved being on the campus a lot.
As far as my aesthetic biases, I think part of the issue is that I've lived in California my whole life. I get tired of California architecture; I am more attracted to the classic look of the older East Coast campuses, like Cornell and Columbia (though the latter has perhaps the ugliest law school building in the United States). Still, none of this is very important to me. I mean, I'd pick Stanford over Harvard for law school, so I obviously like the school!
