University of Scranton Reviews
After leaving active duty, I decided to attend law school. Again, although most of my peers were probably smarter than me (my LSAT score was below the bottom 25%), the well rounded education Scranton provided allowed me to view problems from different perspectives. Therefore, I have excelled and I am in the top quarter of my class.
I highly recommend the University of Scranton.
P.S. I had a lot of fun there as an undergraduate and met my spouse there!
