"Like any graduate program, the costs and benefits of the law program should be evaluated given the totality of the circumstances. Overall, USF law is an excellent academic institution. Though the higher cost of living may be an issue for some, it should be the sole factor that may deter one from attending since the invaluably supportive community and extensive faculty support more than make up for it."

"The diversity of the syllabi and students involved in the program is a huge plus. The workload is manageable and the class discussions are fruitful for both academic advancement and growing relationships with individuals from different backgrounds. I will say it costs an arm and a leg to attend USF. The program should offer more scholarships or larger scholarships to the students it admits."
