Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Cardozo vs Temple
« on: March 30, 2014, 02:07:13 PM »
Thank you both for your responses it has helped me organize my thoughts a little more. I guess my biggest question is, if I choose to go to temple for financial reasons, will I be shutting myself out of the New York City legal market? Or will it be plausible for me to get a job there when I graduate. I know most firms recruit regionally unless you go to a top 20 school, but Philly is pretty close to New York. Also, I already negotiated more money out of Cardozo, they originally offered me $20k but was able to get them to increase to $28k. My other thought was to just tell them that I'm going to have to commit to Temple and see if they give me more money last minute. Thoughts?

Choosing the Right Law School / Cardozo vs Temple
« on: March 26, 2014, 06:17:57 PM »
So I'm trying to decide between temple and Cardozo. I have instate tuition at temple and they also gave me a $10,000 scholarship. Cardozo gave me a $28,000 scholarship but will still be much more expensive than temple (my tuition at temple will be 9,000 a year). The thing is I really want to practice law in NYC. Any advice or opinions that anyone has would be extremely appreciated, I have no idea what to do. I got a 160 on the LSAT and have a 3.6 GPA.
