Commuter student or not, “Being in the center of Las Vegas, there is always something to do and somewhere new to go.” You may be surprised to learn, however, that law school in Sin City is actually quite serious. Some students feel the competitiveness is a product of the high caliber of the student body. A 1L explains particularly in the school’s early years many “of the students in the entering class are in their forties, and several of them are doctors and dentists, so the bar is set quite high.” Though the level of commitment remains the same, the profile of the average entrant may have changed over time as the school’s applicant pool has widened in terms of age and experience. In addition to their diligence, UNLV students are a fairly homogenous and quite conservative group. One student points out that some of “the faculty is comprised of very liberal individuals from a diverse background, whereas a majority of the students are very conservative and tend to have similar life experiences.”
