Perks to living on campus is that you are really close to campus. The cost is reasonable if looking to places close by but off campus. There are no stores, but there are plenty within five minutes. It is very family friendly with a nice park just off campus, two minute walk away. The campus is small, there is nearly no shopping of any kind on campus, except for the book store. But it makes for a good law school experience.

There is no dining on campus. They have a snack bar and book store where one can buy snacks.

Ave offers scholarships to individuals who do well as undergrads and who performed adequately on the LSAT. They also offer scholarships for those who have participated in pro life organizations, or have worked in some religious capacity.

The Admin Do Not Care About the Their Students. The school charges you for 15 credit hours although you take 10. Ave does not let you take classes at other schools. They are really greedy. They do not offer many classes and the have too many required classes which the add new required classes every semester.

Better to Live Off Campus. Just okay... many students have been harassed and the Admin look away. Too expensive.

This Choice Was Perfect for Me – A wonderful sense of family and community. The professors are some of the top legal minds in the country with outstanding credentials. cost is reasonable, knowlegable and friendly staff. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Easy Access – Plenty of park, easy access, car is only necessary for making trips off campus

The major in Ave is Law. LSAT scores and Personal Statements are important.

Off-campus housing is great. There are plenty of apartments, condos, townhouses, and homes within walking distance. Prices are higher the closer you get to campus, but nothing unreasonable. Naples is extremely safe.

The only options for "dining" on campus are snacks at the bookstore and a small counter in the Commons with more snacks. It needs a lot of improvement. Luckily, there are plenty of places close to campus to eat at.

Can Be Tight – I lived on campus so it was never really a problem but from what I heard from my friends, at certain times it was hard to find a spot but it just means you had to park a little further than usual.

Live Off Campus – I lived on campus my 1L year and the only perk that it had was that it was convenient to get to class at 8 am. It is expensive compared to other communities where students live. For instance, I paid 750 a month to live on campus with a roommate the school stuck me with. My friend lived in a gated community in an apartment by himself, golf course, 4 pools, a gym, and a clubhouse he had access to for 900 a month.

There are only two Greek affiliations at AMSL, and they are both professional organizations.

There is no on campus dining per se, however there is a small cafe where you may purchase pre-packaged food and drinks. Unfortunately, there is no fresh fruit, or anything particularly healthy to speak of.

Health & Safety:
Feels Like Home – This school is based in Naples, Florida, in a community called "The Vineyards." The law school has settled into a temporary home in a vacated retirement community, complete with a pool! Being that the school is in a small community, it is very safe and the only challenge is dismissal at the local elementary school

Tons of Corporate Resturaunts – Naples has alot of stuff around here because all people do is go out and eat. You have pretty much every nice corporate resturaunt here in town. Brio, Bravo, Capital Grill, Applebees, Five Guys, you name it, they probably have it or something like it. And there are a ton of random little cafes, resturaunts and diners too.

Small but Nice – The campus is not big at all, but it's a small school and even though I live on campus, I do drive across the street to the law library. The library is small but has a great collection. There are no computers in there but there are plug ins everywhere! Our apartments on campus are nice and are pretty big. The classroom (your first year you only have class in 2..)(s) are all really nice. Since this is only the second year they have been in Naples, everything is nice and new. I would complain that there is no 'union' or student center area (the area we have consists of 4 tables. Literally). We have no athletic center or gym which is a bummer, but there are quite a few in the area. There are a few activities that are held on campus but not too many, which is actually really nice. I think the organizations here have a nice balance when it comes to social life/studying and the activities that are held on campus are fun. Also, most stuff is held during lunch which is a plus because they feed you and if you attend anything in the late afternoon or at night, there is usually beer there or drinking is permitted.

Quite but With Perks! Naples is a great town it's relatively small and pretty quite but if you like to go out, there are definitely places for that. As far as law school goes, it's perfect because Miami is a little over an hour away! The weather sucks early in the school year but is amazing after that. The only complaint is that it does take a good 5 to 10 minutes longer to get anywhere because of all the stop lights and the old people...
Sorry, there are no reviews.
