"Disappointed with the financial aid, but it is the best law school in South Florida and overall it has a good reputation amongst employers."

"University of Miami School of Law has a wonderful program that will prepare you for your legal career. Being that UM is a private school it is immensely expensive, however, Miami's extensive ties to the community are extremely helpful when networking and looking for a potential career."

"Environment cultivates learning but the cost of attendance is extremely high. Although financial aid is available it still does not compensate enough for the cost of attendance."

"The traffic is terrible throughout Miami most of the day and it's not the most convenient city. The professors in the upper courses are very good for the most part and there is a lot of networking and career opportunities."

"UM is not nationally recognized, but rather is respected regionally. It is very expensive, as is Miami to live in. The quality of the school is wonderful, though."

"Good school but inconsistent with some professors and classes. Some professors have the same finals so it is not beneficial if you don't fit into those classes because everyone else will have better grades than you creating a very uneven playing field. Extremely expensive, financial aid is difficult and they don't work with you. Parking is the worst I have ever seen and also very expensive. They do have some good visiting professors but again, if you take those classes to expand your knowledge, you may bring your GPA down because you don't know what to expect."

"The graduate program here is a bit intense. The faculty are always challenging us to learn and think about our courses in different ways rather than just be content with just a rehearsed straight answer from a book. Competition between students is lively but the students are friendly and great to be around. The city of Miami is fantastic, couldn't be happier being here as I'm originally from a rather small town in Texas. The Law School deans are always accessible and willing to help with whatever one could possibly need, they have done a wonderful job of making us feel welcome here at the school. The school is a bit smaller than I expected in terms of buildings for pretty good size class, but there is also construction ongoing so once that's done will have a bit less congestion and some beautiful new buildings nearby ."
