thanks for the advice jacy85 but my harsh comments were not directed at you...its very difficult to get a job in NYC if you are not coming from Fordham Columbia, NYU or cornell...i think all the other schools are pretty much equal (hofstra pace st johns and buffalo) i agree that buffalo might not be the best city but i mean I'll get used to it. If you think about it theres so many kids that come out of the NYC schools looking for jobs and they will only take the top 10% from every school. Buffalo is definately cheaper and the job prospects cant be any worse than coming from hofstra, pace, or st johns. The reason why people dont apply 2 buffalo because its prolly far away and everyone wants to be close to the city. i see buffalo as an advantage because theres nothing to do but study for 3 years. I work for a guy in wall street who graduated from New York Law school making 500,000 as a solo practicioner and he says the name will get you your first job but your work ethic will get you the second and third..meaning the school can only hook u up so many times...but i appreciate everyone's help and i dont mean to jump at anyone's throat but frankly i am a little tired at the "its not going to law school if it isn't harvard"...I think some of us need to reevaluate the reason we are going to law schools and stop being such name brand whores.
