Some interesting facts about New England Law - Boston

New England Law | Boston is the only independent law school in Boston. Law is all we do. Our energies are focused entirely on providing students with a superior legal education that opens doors to future opportunities.

New England Law has upheld this legacy of excellence for more than a century. This tradition stems from its founding in 1908 as Portia Law School, the first law school in the nation established exclusively for women. That inclusive—and revolutionary—spirit continues today with a diverse student body of men and women from around the world. The school became coeducational in 1938, and its alumni live and work across the United States and in 29 countries worldwide.

Located in the heart of Boston’s legal community, New England Law offers in-demand academic programs; a friendly, diverse community; and a range of experiential learning opportunities that is among the most varied in the nation. Eight US Supreme Court justices have visited New England Law, lectured at the school, or taught in our summer-abroad programs.

New England Law faculty bring to the classroom and to the field their exceptional academic credentials, years of hard-won legal victories, influential research, and a proven ability to communicate their expertise and enthusiasm. Perhaps more importantly, our professors are truly committed to our students’ success. “The faculty are deeply invested and committed to students’ success. They are active mentors in aiding us to become the best lawyers possible.” —Stephanie Niles ’20

hi guys! I was able to negotiate my scholarship - wanted to share and encourage others to do so!
Congrats, Snippy! Is this the direction you're leaning?
Sad I was waitlisted here- received an email saying “In order to help the Admissions Committee with their review, we suggest sending updated transcripts, if available, to LSAC so that they can provide us with new CAS reports. You also may be able to increase the likelihood of admission on reapplication by improving your LSAT score (especially if you have only taken the exam once) or by showing new or additional work experience, graduate work, or other law-related activity. ”
Little confused about the transcripts as I completed CAS far after I graduated with my BA
Just got waitlisted lmao
I just replied to you on the Suffolk thread. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
