Class of 2021
I chose New England Law not only for the competitive scholarship offered but for the sense of community I found while visiting. From the moment I was accepted, I was guided through the enrollment process and given prompt answers to any questions I had.
The faculty here are amazing. After applying, every student I talked to at New England Law vouched for the dedication and skills of our professors. The resources of the faculty are unmatched; a professor here connected me to the representative I work for at the Massachusetts State House. If you ask the faculty for any assistance, they are more than willing to help.
Career Services here are great. Many schools lack direction for the question “what next?” but New England Law stands out. Each student is assigned a Career Services advisor, participates in a skills-building class as a 1L, and has access to job and internship offerings online. Career Services gives students templates and counseling for creating legal résumés and cover letters, as well as specific guidance for each career path.
My overall experience here has been challenging but positive. The stereotypes about law school being challenging are not an exaggeration, but there is no other place where I would rather work toward my goal. New England Law is a close community with supportive peers and endless opportunities for growth.
Visit the school before you commit. Getting a feel for the environment should be one of your biggest deciding factors, but it’s often overlooked.
