    Great for these types of students

    The truly desperate. Consider the online California law schools before this one. Seriously, your job prospects will be better.

    Tips for prospective students

    DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. Retake the LSAT and go some where else.

    Bang for the buck

    Half of the grads cannot find jobs. The school forces out huge numbers of its student body with a harsh grading curve and an odd grading system the 1L year (to stop transfers, but they will lie to your face and say it is to help the 1L students, whom of course it only hurts).

    Did enjoy being here

    Grundy is the most depressing area I have ever seen, including third world countries. Sounds like an exaggeration, but it's not.

    Did learn a lot

    The classes are not that bad, with a few exceptions, but the non traditional 1L grading system gives you no feed back. There are newbie profs there with less than 5 years of any kind of legal experience. The grading system (1L) and curve (2L and 3L) is horrible and will make you sorry you decided to attend this school rather than take the LSAT again.
