"I found the courses range from very helpful to not helpful at all. The three professors from whom I learned the most are no longer there. I found most of the professors to be too easy and providing value worth the tuition I paid."

"Loyola University College of Law offers programs in both common law and civil law. Common law students take courses that gear them for state bar exams in all states except Louisiana, while civil law courses are focused particularly on Louisiana law. As a Catholic school, the university's mission is centered around social justice. As a result, the university offers free clinics in a wide range of practices that include criminal defense, family law, immigration law, and employment law. Additionally, the university has a very extensive moot court program that prepares first year students for appellate brief writing as well as speaking. The Moot Court program at Loyola offers teams such as the Jessup International law, First Amendment, and Admiralty teams who compete across the nation against other universities. Loyola also offers three student based journals that all afford the opportunity of student-published papers: the Law Review, Maritime Journal, and the Journal of Public Interest Law. As a native of New Orleans, I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Loyola Law and encourage any prospective student to apply."

"There are a variety of classes students can choose from to study for the bar and scholarships are given to many of it's students. It would be a great place to study if you are planning to stay in Louisiana. Resources are limited for out-of-state students and job prospects are much harder to come by."

"Entering an Graduate-Level music degree program can be very challenging, but also very rewarding. Understanding music history and music theory develop the musicianship needed to succeed in a very competitive and well-educated market, but self-motivation, curiosity, and creative expression are the interpersonal qualities necessary to flourish with-in this field of music."

"Very liberal agenda, department has great people but has gone through a rocky period in recent years. Not the most organized. If you stay close to the right instructors, you'll get an excellent education."

"Any student interested in any form of libral arts will find themselves right at home in Loyola's academic settings. Furthermore, its dorms, classrooms, and sports venues, especially the pool, are, in terms of quality, second only to the athletes who use them alongside the student body. The food is thenominal and prepared by a caring staff. You will find someone to connect with and religion does not have to be a factor."

"There are many pros to my graduate program. Loyola offers a part-time MBA program that holds night classes that are conducive to my work schedule. Students can finish relatively quickly since the university offers a fast-track program. The professors are very knowledgable. I have also gained many friends while pursuing my MBA. If there are any cons to the program, I would say that due to the budget cuts, the program is looking for ways to accomplish more with less."

"As a JD/MBA student at Loyola University of New Orleans, I feel that I am offered a wide variety of learning experiences, including in-class, internship, and networking opportunities. New Orleans has so much to offer with its unique culture and diversity, as well as a close knit community. The Jesuit background also provides a learning experience based in Christian values, which is a huge pro for me. The only con I can really think of is that the email system and some of the other technology used to communicate assignments is outdated. Overall, I wouldn't choose anywhere else for my JD/MBA education!"

"The pros to the evening program at Loyola were many which influenced my decision to attend school there. First and foremost, it allowed working professionals to achieve their goals and dreams of becoming an attorney by having an evening program to accommodate their work schedules and family life. Secondly, because of our small class size, it allowed me to engage with many professors on a one on one level. Most importantly, even though I am an evening student, I still was able to connect with the other students and participate in activities for networking which helped me feel a part of the school. The cons was that only the civil law tract was offered. Because of this, I would have to do some major schedule maneuvering to take common law classes."

"The program coursework is excellent with good entrepreneurial classes that are beneficial in the workforce. The cons are the limited number of career opportunities throughout the program and the lack of connections with the alumni network. Overall, it is a good program and I learned a ton. The teachers are excellent and truly care about the students."

"The adminstration and faculty are not helpful. The grading curve is harsh even after the 1st year, and especially since the school is trying to boost its bar exam passage rate. I would not advise students to go here or any other 3rd Tier law school."

"Loyola New Orleans is a great law program for those looking to remain in New Orleans because that's where it's name is recognized. In most large cities outside of New Orleans, employers have never heard of Loyola New Orleans, and do not understand the program. In the end, if you're not from the area, it's more difficult to get a job here because you are not New Orleans bred and do not bleed black and gold (the Saints colors) or purple and gold (the LSU colors) while at the same time it is difficult for you to get a job even in your hometown because they wonder why you left to go to a school they did not know existed. So you are between a rock and a hard place in terms of finding a job. However, I do feel prepared to take on any employment because of my training at Loyola New Orleans, as their program is fairly rigorous and comprehensive."
