"Definitely a hefty investment but worth the cost in the end. Career Services is immensely helpful at securing you summer jobs and permanent employment after graduation."

"Penn Law is a wonderful place to be in school. Its reputation and faculty are both top-notch, and career services supports you throughout your entire time in law school. Philadelphia is a great city to be in."

"Pros: this is not your average northern ivy league law school where people are competitive and cold. Collegiality here is REAL. The school operates as a family and there are always fun celebrations going on. Cons: the 1L classes focus too much on theory and less about practical black-letter law; registering is still in the stone age where you have to go in personally and confirm spots on waitlist. You won't get all the classes that you want, which is annoying for the tuition costs."

"Pros: faculty, staff and professors are incredibly supportive and available to students Cons: there are no real cons except that financial aid is not particularly great. also, this is not particular to Penn Law but law school generally can be very challenging on some days;"
