Seton Hall Law/ LEO program Alumni or current student thoughts?

Postby jovilo » Sat Mar 04, 2017 11:26 am

Hey guys,

Got into seton hall and it wasn't really on my radar before, as I was hoping to attend school locally and save commuting/living expenses cost. Looking to here from any current students there or any alumni who want to chime in (Good or bad). weighing my options, and I don't think i can just dismiss the school based solely on the bad rep given to it on these forums. I gained admission through the LEO initiative they run, so any vets of it who can give thoughts would be appreciated too. thanks!

There is no need to bump a thread after 90 minutes of inactivity.

I don't know that you'll find someone from that particular program on these forums, but what are your ultimate career goals? And where do you want to work? Unless that specialized program guarantees you specific job options on graduation, there's no need for you to consider anything outside of Seton Hall's actual job placement statistics and your cost of attendance.

I applied to Seton Hall and was admitted with a modest scholarship, but even with that I would have been looking at a mound of debt. They have good employment numbers, but SHU is scary expensive for what it is. I withdrew my app based on that, as I felt that I had better offers elsewhere. They negotiated, but when they came back with only a $5k/yr increase (after showing full-rides at similiar schools in the same geographic region), I was not a happy camper and withdrew.

What other schools/offers are you looking at? What did they offer you?

WARNING Seton Hall Law LEO Applicants.

If you are accepted through the LEO Program, you will have one less course your first semester to meet the 2.0 GPA requirement by the end of the 1st academic year or face dismissal. The 2 week prep program is not enough to prep students for the law school experience.

It seems unjust that the school accepts students with educational disadvantages and does not take this into consideration when accessing whether he or she should be dismissed. The retention of the LEO students (as i have seen) has decreased and only works to further pigeon hole disadvantaged groups. DO NOT EXPECT DEANS TO BE UNDERSTANDING. The school will use you as marketing tool and get rid of you the minute you do not comply with these policies. They will leave you out to dry with 70k Plus in private loans (unless you are given other aid).

Both schools are absurdly overpriced, have abysmal biglaw placement, and mostly just operate as diploma mills to siphon Stafford loan booty into the hands of their fatcat admins and profs.

Spend some time on this website to get an idea of what awaits you OP:
