New York Law School / Please help with my decision!!!!
« on: April 29, 2009, 10:15:28 PM »
Hello, I really need help with determing what law school to attend. I did not score well on the LSAT and that discouraged me to apply to too many schools. Well, these are the following schools I got in:
Nova Law School, Florida
Florida International University Law, Florida
New York Law School.

I am originally from Miami and I hava made a couple connections with lawyers and currently work for one so I kind of am connected to the area. Also I was offered a part time job with good pay in Miami so thats another decision to make whether go to school part time and take the job or go to school full time and say no to the job. FIU is much cheaper then NOVA but fairly new which I think may be a disadvanatge. In regards to New York Law school, I am kind of excited about living in NYC and I think being in Miami my whole life that I should live somewhere else and it would be a great opportunity however I do most likely want to move back to Florida to practice unless I get a really good job in NYC. I also thought about attending NYLS and doing really well and then transfering to one of the higher ranked schools since I am interested in International law and NYC is a good place for that. I guess what I am trying to ask is if NYLS or the possibility of transfering to a better school is worth the move.

P.S. I have also read a lot of negative comments about NYLS...Are there any good? Also even though Nova and FIU rank lower than NYLS is it better since there are less competitive law schools in South Florida?   

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
