It was very good, a couple of things that were noteworthy:
The school is tiny; 1L class size is 95 students... dean of admins didn’t think it would be too much larger this year.
3 clinic programs: legal aide, juvenile, and patent law
If you are applying, your personal statement should be no more than 3 pages

Faculty is really tight nit, a lot of them area on first name basis with the students, its a very welcoming atmosphere.

Very influential in the state, 80% of their students end up practicing in Maine, not much elsewhere.

I liked the teacher who taught the property class we sat in on. She did a very good job of explaining property to people who mos likely have never seen a property class before.
