"There are a lot of good things about Minnesota. The area immediately around the law school is a bit dead, but transportation is easy to get downtown or to a place with a little more life. If you want something super diverse it isn't going to be Minnesota."

"Great teachers + great peers. The atmosphere is excellent and the competition between students is friendly, not cutthroat. Not a big career network outside of the Midwest. The building is dreary because all the classrooms are essentially in the basement."

"Minneapolis is a great city to live in and the students and faculty at the Law School are very collegial and helpful. There are plenty of student organizations and outside organizations in the Twin Cities to get involved in and the Law School offers courses in an extremely wide variety of areas. Career Center is what you make of it."

"Minneapolis is a great city, so the school gets lots of points for that. Depending what you want to do, the career center and network are limited. Some faculty are amazing and accessible and some aren't. Anyone who is looking at the social life rating of law schools should not apply to law school."

" Great faculty (interesting classes, accessible outside of class, etc.), great location, generous financial aid.  Little guidance from the career center, "Law in Practice" program needs a serious overhaul."

"Love the school. It isn't super competitive. Everyone is nice and supportive. The only down side is if you want to get a job out of state, it is really difficult unless you have amazing grades."

"I enjoy the smaller class sizes because professors have more time to respond to students and encourage student participation. What I love the most about my law school is the way the students help instead of hinder each other. We're all there trying to get a good grade, but we aren't sabotaging one another to get it. If somebody can help another classmate out with a "cold call," he or she will."

"The University of Minnesota Law School has a strong alumni network, and the faculty are absolutely AMAZING: easy to reach, affable, and willing to help in any way possible. The administration knows and understands that by being a top-20 law school, there is still work to be done with their diversity and career support initiatives. The workload can be heavy, and a schedule packed; no one expects law school to be easy. The Twin Cities are beautiful and offer many options for food, adventures in wildlife and nightlife fun."

"Life is nice in the cities, but it is hard to get a job in Minnesota if you are not from here and the degree is not strong enough to make leaving easy."

"The University of Minnesota Law School is the best law school in the Midwest, where you will receive a quality education. The only con is the lack of real help from the career center, which puts the burden on students to network, network, network."

"Pros: Diverse and vibrant city with culture and history and plenty of young professionals. Minneapolis & St. Paul are "livable" cities that are accessible and green. The U offers quality education with professors that are willing to meet and listen to students. Cons: The Career Center does their best to help students but students are largely on their own for obtaining summer and full time employment post-graduation."
