“I transferred out of Madison to be closerQuite BrightPharmacy
I transferred out of Madison to be closer to home as I am from out-of-state and traveling back and forth was a hassle. Honestly I regret it more than anything. UW was an academically challenging (but tolerable) school where I felt as though everyone around me was of similar levels and we could have intelligent conversations and class moved at a good pace. Socially it was always easy to find plans whether it be through greek life, a house party, or even just around the city of Madison itself. I wasn't involved in greek life but my friends who were were not exclusive at all and i in no way felt left out or excluded. I really enjoyed all the city of Madison had to offer and wouldn't have left if it weren't so far from home!
“I loved UW Madison Law School! I lovedQuite BrightOther
I loved UW Madison Law School! I loved the academic challenge, the experiential learning (especially in the LAIP and General Practice programs), some of the professors, the diversity (I am white but had Latino, African American, and Native American friends), etc. I still guest lecture every year and it is an honor to be invited back to do so. I feel so strongly about my experience that I have given money to the law school every year since I graduated. My undergraduate school was not a good cultural fit for me - it was Southern, conservative, religious, racist, and totally into sports and the Greek system. The UW Law School - having a definite liberal bent, a strong commitment to diversity, etc. - was a much better cultural fit for me. I'm sure this had a lot to do with my enjoyment of UW Law.
