Choosing the Right Law School / Why is New York Law School a 3T?
« on: May 03, 2007, 08:26:25 AM »
Why is New York Law School a third tier law school?

Yes, I know which factors contribute to make the US & World News Report ranking, but why does New York Law School (NYLS) receive such a poor evaluation by judges and lawyers?

Its faculty seems great or at least very good, so it is its location and its programs... so.. what?


This could sound a stupid question but I'd like to know the answer..

Some law schools are "University" (i.e. New York University), other are just law schools (i.e. Brooklyn Law School)..
What makes a law school a "University"?


Incoming 1Ls / Classroom seats...

I'm a bit embarrassed asking this but   :-[.... do you know if professors use a chart of the seats in classrooms and one has to take always the same seat (namely, the seat you took when got into the classroom for your first day of law school) during that class?  ???

thanks! ;)

Choosing the Right Law School / Albany even if foreign?
« on: April 17, 2007, 06:53:37 AM »
I wondered if being a foreign student could "jeopardize" the many governmental positions available for Albany students during the summer or once they graduate (jobs)...

do state and federal offices hire only US citizens? do you know if foreign graduates can work in this kind of institutions? maybe as counselors or delegates abroad....  :D


1) I am an international student interested in business and corporate law  ;D

2) I am white   ;)

3) I'd like to practice both in NY or Washington D.C.  8)

thank you!

Incoming 1Ls / Summer associate

When (1 year fall, spring...??) do law firms come to campus to hire summer associates?

Can 1Ls attend job fairs for summer positions or are they just for soon to be graduate students?

Choosing the Right Law School / How much an LLM counts?
« on: April 12, 2007, 03:54:13 AM »
I'm an international student and hopefully I'll get the opportunity to get an LLM abroad before attending the law school in US.
would it be worth withdrawing from the T3 law school that accepted me, take the LLM in Europe for 1 year and then reapply for the JD in US during the next cycle?

Would the LLM increase my chances to get admitted into a better law school (say, low T1 or high T2) despite my LSAT is high 150s?


Choosing the Right Law School / no notice...

Choosing the Right Law School / Albany or New York Law School?
« on: April 05, 2007, 04:15:16 AM »
