U of O versus Willamette
Friday, January 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for stopping by my profile. You asked if I knew anything about Willamette versus U of O. I can only speak from what I heard in my own research, and I really encourage you to check places like LSD for more info and input from others. After doing some personal looking around, I would never choose U of O. I would much rather go to Lewis and Clark or Willamette (why didn't you apply to Lewis and Clark, out of curiousity?). Many of the attorney's I spoke to had a surprisingly low opinion of U of O, and many suggested it had forced itself up in the ratings without improving quality of education. I heard this theme several times, and it really scared me away from U of O entirely, not to mention the campus was not very impressive when I visited. I want to make sure I get a great education, and wouldn't go to a higher rank if I knew it was likely to end up actually being a worse legal education - so I vetoed U of O. I should point out though, that I think U of O places pretty well in Oregon and the northwest generally, even though there's was this recurring theme I kept hearing. I think U of O would probably still give you good placement, but I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole even though being admitted was almost a given for me. Willamette, on the other hand, is a lower ranked school, but regarded very highly in Oregon. Especially in Salem, Willamette reigns as king - that's the impression I got. It's also nationally known for its dispute resolution program, so if you wanted to go into mediation, Willamette would be a sure bet, just like Lewis and Clark would be for environmental law. The campus is also great, I'm sure you've seen it since you live in Oregon. I hope that helps? I think you'd be fine at either of the two schools, but if it had come down to U of O and Willamette to me, I'd choose Willamette. To get the same pull, you'll want to be higher in your class though, especially if you plan to travel out of Oregon. But I think your education will be leagues better - just my thoughts. Also, glad to see a humane society volunteer! I do that also, and have two cats at home, both from Heartland Humane Society. Feel free to stop by my lsn again, or drop me an email if I can help more or chat.

Thanks

Thanks for the advice. I didn't apply to Lewis and Clark because I figured I would'nt get in, and I'm low on finances. I actually went to UofO as an undergrad and loved the campus and town. The law school doesn't really have a campus though. Honestly, I doubt that I'll get into Uof O, so I pretty much figure I will go to Willamette, which must be a good choice because I plan on working in Oregon. Once again, thanks for the advice!

I just was browsing LSN (what else is there to do when I'm obsessing about law school admissions?), and happenned to see that you're an AmeriCorps alum. Where did you do your program at? Best of luck with the rest of your schools, and maybe I'll see you at Willamette!

Naturally, I understand your post and don't really disagree. Really I was just trying to shed some light on the matter given the intensity of applications/applicants/etc etc. But it can also be deterring to see someone who has very similar qualifications and gets in when another similar applicant gets the boot. It's like a crap shoot...hahaha. Well done on your apps- high success ration there, you must be pleased. Hope it all works out for you! Whats the #1 call?

U of O vs. Willamette
Thursday, March 09 2006 at 07:00 PM

I totally disagree about selecting Willamette over U of O. I was offered a full ride to Willamette and 1/2 tution at Lewis & Clark, but I'm going to U of O. Perhaps I'm dumb, but I'm at least smart enough to get Willamette to offer a free ride and to get into Minnesota. Lewis and Clark is a good school, so going there over Oregon wouldn't be a mistake; however, choosing Willamette would be
