"I really had a great experience at BYU and I am grateful for it. I am amazed at how low they are able to keep their tuition low and yet still offer quality in education. As someone who is interested in working in the public sector, I am very grateful for that."

"The program allows for learning in a unique atmosphere. Professors are often very helpful and care more than anyone else at the University about your success in career development. However, the Career Services Office is a little lacking in their practical support. Unless you are in the top 20% you are more or less on your own in trying to find placement and establish yourself in a career."

"I feel like the biggest pros of BYU Law School are the incredible networking resources and the brilliant and kind faculty. It's very clear that everyone at the school really cares about the students' futures. The biggest con is the small focus of the career services office. They seem to cater to traditional law firm opportunities, which are typically only available to a certain raking of law students and not everyone even wants that career path. It would be better if Career services offered different legal tracks so students can have more career choices."

"I have been at BYU for the past few years now, with a few semesters left. I am continually impressed by how much this institution, its staff and faculty, and even its students are constantly trying to improve everything about this school. Each year, the rankings for various programs (business, law, accounting, nursing, art, and theater, to name a few) keep rising. There is an amazing atmosphere here that helps everyone feel included, welcomed, and successful. While the coursework is very demanding, in the end, you get a top-notch education, and it makes all the hard work and effort worth it. Anyone who attends college knows that it is not just about classes though. The social atmosphere is very fun, active, engaging, and lively. There are so many things to do on campus and off campus, and you have the reassurance that you will be with a good crowd of people due to the strict honor code in place. Many people who have never been here think the honor code (with dress and grooming standards, zero alcohol/tobacco/drugs, and morality standards) is too restrictive, but as someone who has lived it, I can tell you firsthand that it actually is very freeing. When you are not entangled with all of the addictions, distractions, health issues, side effects, financial issues, and emotional problems, you really can focus on your schooling, and on developing a rewarding social life as well. The campus is beautiful, and the experiences you gain here are even more so."
