    Tips for prospective students

    Look at the exam bank before finals and make sure this is the school you want to graduate from because it is hard to transfer from this school.

    In three sentences

    Thomas M. Cooley Law School is great when it comes to how the professors really are available and want to help. But if you want to transfer they make it difficult for you.

    Campus Safety

    Security on duty before campus is open, until after campus is closed. One entrance/exit.

    Greek Life

    Phi Delta Phi, legal society

    Clubs and Activities

    Tampa Campus is still building up its student org force, but it has everything covered.

    Great for these types of students

    All.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Tampa Bay campus is pretty small. There is always construction going on because it still pretty new.

    Bang for the buck

    Great price for law school. One of the cheapest, while it also has one of the hardest curriculums. Great education at a great price.

    What to do for fun

    You won't be too far from the city, so there is city life. There are several organized events going on, like runs, sporting events, etc. just have to search. There are also things like pottery, painting, horse back riding, zoos, and sanctuaries. Not to mention the night life is usually awake.

    Food and Dining

    Tons of food nearby. The area has plenty of fast food and restaurants. All the typical selections, with several local selections. Diverse selection as well.

    Dorm Life

    Depends on which campus you are on. I am at Tampa Bay campus, located in Riverview, FL. We do not have dorms. Most students live in 1 bedroom apartments nearby.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are tough. The reading assignments sometimes seem impossible to complete. Try your best to get through it and your professors won't embarrass you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a deep breath, everyone will try to scare you about law school. How its so hard and you should take your time, how you should only take a few classes or less, that you will have trouble hacking it. Stay calm, read your assignments, and remember it gets easier as you go.

    In three sentences

    Faculty, staff, and students are nice, polite, and hard-working. People look out for each other. Academia is outstanding. My review is for the Tampa Bay campus located in Florida.
