Transferring / What are the Odds? (Fordham / Cardozo)
« on: April 26, 2011, 12:10:05 PM »
FTT in NY to Fordham or Cardozo (or really any respectable school in the Northeast):

3.7, Top 10%,

Have already been accepted to Brooklyn Law as a transfer, wondering if that will give me any leverage as a transfer.  I would assume schools try to sabotage other comparable schools rankings by allowing them to accept people who don't eventually enroll.

Transferring / Touro to...some other place in NY
« on: March 21, 2011, 11:47:03 PM »
I'm at Touro now (yea, I know), but I finished in the top 10% pretty easily and I have been accepted by BLS as a transfer.  However, I already have 20k off at Touro and I'm confident they will offer me more.  Add to that the fact that while at Touro I can live with my parents, roughly saving me 10k to 15k a year.

So the question is, is it better to stay at Touro paying almost 40k less a year and have a solid chance at finishing in the top 10%; or is it better to switch over to Brooklyn and pay more and be in a more competitive atmosphere.

As far as the peripheral issues go, I don't particularly like Touro's school location or the "campus" atmosphere.  I would really like to live in Brooklyn / be closer to the city / take part in the school's clinics, but I am scared of incurring massive amounts of debt.  Input would be much appreciated.
