"I chose PSU Dickinson (Carlisle) because of its reputation, its location (right outside the state capital Harrisburg), and its offerings. I wanted a law school that had the options to do public interest law & Dickinson does through the clinic experiences and other extracurricular options. The faculty are friendly and approachable, all wanting to see their students succeed. Overall, I had a fantastic experience."

"The Dickinson School of Law (Carlisle Campus) is nothing short of excellent. The attentiveness each Professor is willing to give and the friendliness of all the support staff make you really feel at home. Any question I ever need answered is always given careful consideration and I really feel like everyone who works there genuinely cares. The courses and opportunities I have been given throughout my law school career has been valuable. The only con is the cost. Tuition is constantly rising and for myself, having 2 kids and living on one income is very difficult. All around, the experience has been great."

"Penn State is a fantastic place to study law. The faculty, staff, and students are all incredibly friendly. The biggest downside is the need to travel to cities as part of the job search, but because we're not in any particular city we still have access to all of the major Northeast legal markets."

"A legal education, although typically talked of as invaluable and the key to a successful future, does not necessarily live up to its reputation anymore. The legal market is saturated. Finding a paying summer internship or even a job after graduation is nearly impossible. Penn State has an active Career Services department, but there is only so much they can do. Penn State Law's campus in State College is a great place to be. The town is vibrant, the Law building is stupendous, and the curriculum has been more than adequate. This does not change the fact that a law degree doesn't mean what it used to. It's just not worth it anymore."
