It's Not Bragging If It's True!

St. Thomas law school got some great news last week-- according to the Princeton Review, we are #4 in the nation for quality of life, and #8 for best professors.  Here is part of what students had to say:

Everyone here—not just the deans, professors, and admissions and registrar staff, but even the custodians, cafeteria employees, and the security personnel—strive to create a community in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity,

I am in the right place.

Congratulations!

My law school, and others like it, too often discount student feedback in favor of prestige points--U.S. News rankings, employment data, faculty self-evaluation, clerkship placement, etc. What's lost is not only how students feel about what they're learning, but whether the culture fosters learning in the first place.

Coming from a place like Baylor, where--at least in my experience--student life was strenuously emphasized at every level of decision making, faculty were deeply involved in students' lives, and learning opportunities were never cabined to the classroom, I would find it hard to give my law school high marks for quality of life, though I regard the faculty highly.
