Hi everyone. I'm currently attending business school in Miami and definitely want to attend law school afterwards. I have been to Atlanta a few times plus I have family there. I'm thinking of applying to GSU as one of my schools. Is there anyone here currently attending, preferably part-time, that can tell me a little about the school, the curriculum, etc.?

Thanks

I'm a GSU alum--College of Education. If the law school is anything like the college of Education and that seems likely --you will be well prepared to work in the legal field.

We have some good attorneys in metro Atlanta, such as the firm of Morris, Manning and Martin, it would be a good idea to research the major law firms and start networking now in your area.
GA Bar Association is a good place to do that.

College of Law :: Georgia State University

Why didn't you try to get a JD/MBA from UM? It's a better school.

Thanks for the insight. I have read it is a great school, well-ranked, and all, but actually "hearing" from a real person that's been there is good.

UM is ranked but they don't have a part time program, which is what I'm aiming for. They recently have gone down in rankings, which I'm not really concerned with but, despite the name recognition, I don't plan on living in Miami any longer than I have to. I worked for UM and applied to their business school and it was horrible. Plus i want some semblance of diversity.

It should be a good school--you will work hard enough for your degree I assure you. The School of Economics is really good, I understand.

Really, in GA--Emory University is the absolute best --of anything. Must be --thousands of Emory Law students and med students everywhere I go. I live near Emory but could never have gotten into it. Glad they do whatever it is they do.

I have a friend who did the part-time GSU program. It took him a long time to get through it, but he has a great job in a solid firm now. I think that the key is good time management; not for the meek of heart.
