Willamette University Graduate Reviews

8 reviews
WU has a beautiful campus, the student body is very friendly, but it’s quite obvious that this is a private education for those with wealthy families. The students are mostly white, with some international students sprinkled in. There is a law school and business school as well. The campus is literally across the street from the capitol, which is beneficial for those interested in politics. Salem is a growing city but they are still struggling with income disparity and housing costs. Only an hour from Portland or Eugene. Amazing wineries both in Salem and 15 minutes away in any direction. Two hours from the beach, which means an easy day trip.

They say the big draw to their school is the small class size and the intimate relationships you form with your professors..that was not the case for me. I was an average student who did her work and then moved on but when I started struggling my professors didn't notice. I would not go back if given the opportunity.
The alumni network for the law school is strong in Oregon and every alum I have met has been willing to bend over backwards to help out with job prospects or tips on getting through law school. The placement office has great relationships with local employers and with alumni throughout the country. The job hunting process will really be what you make of it and who you are willing to reach out to. They will meet you halfway, you just have to want it.
