Choosing the Right Law School / Brooklyn Law School class of 2011
« on: May 12, 2008, 09:51:10 AM »
Hey I started a facebook group for incoming students to BLS.  I thought creating a group might help with various transition issues.

Here is the link

BLS students who are not incoming 1L's are more then welcome to join the group.  I am sure us incoming students could benefit from your knowledge/experience.

Thanks.

Choosing the Right Law School / St. John's ~16k VS Brooklyn nada

I have to put money down soon at one of these schools. My goal is to work in NYC after graduation.  I would love to hear from people who have attended either school.  Thanks

Got into Brooklyn last week. Anyone else receive this 10lb package from them overnight priority mail. I wish they had offered me more money rather than spending whatever ridiculous amount of money (must be at least $50) it must have cost to send this thing. All of these documents could easily be, and likely are, available on line.

Hey so I don't claim that this is in anyway telling or even necessarily accurate but I just did a random sampling of placement from Brooklyn, St. John's, and Seton Hall at law firms with NYC offices listed by BBLP. I choose 10 firms randomly and here are the results (if I added it up correctly which I may not have since my teacher appears to have a suspicion that I am not listening to her lecture). Again not sure this is really helpful but here it is... I will post more if I get around to continuing this (if anyone would like to split up going through the firms that would be fantastic, willing to add more schools for comparison). I would look at the partners and associates as the other designations can sometimes be misleading.
