I am trying to decide where to go to law school and my main concern is employment... so I thought I'd see if any of you could help me. Obviously, since you all are farther down the path to finding a job, you'd know more about this.

I am dead set on working in Manhattan and want to work in a large firm... like the rest of the world, of course. Anyways, I am leaning toward NYLS because of location and a large # of people employed in the city, but am also considering St. John's, Seton Hall, and Rutgers-Newark.

What do you all think about NYLS as compared to these schools, in terms of getting a high-paying job in the city? The most important thing to me is that I work in Manhattan. The second most important thing is that my salary is as high as possible. I already know that Rutgers is better than Seton, but are any of these 3 schools better than NYLS in terms of what I'm looking for???

These are the stats that I have (from Martinadale):
# ppl employed in NYC from...
NYLS--2,389, median salary??? i've heard 95 private, i've also heard 75 and 83
St. John's--2,464, median salary 70 for private
Rutgers--958, median salary 101 for private
Seton--531, median salary 81 for private, also heard 74 and 95 (diff. years)

As you can see, no school takes the pack with both # employed and salary. Any comments would be helpful. Thanks!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Cardozo PT-May
« on: April 29, 2006, 08:33:26 PM »
Has anyone received a decision yet?  The program starts so soon and I have yet to hear anything.  Who is still waiting for a decision?  I hope I'm not the only one...  :-\

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Creeped out!
« on: April 29, 2006, 05:37:38 AM »
Anyone else creeped out by the fact that admissions officers check all of these websites to try to guage who's really interested in their school?  Is this really fair if what they read factors into their decisions?  How could it not if they think they know who we are?  What if they think they know who one of us is but they guess wrong because perhaps we altered our information slightly? :o That's a scary thought!
Please share your opinions on this.

btw, I posted this under the waitlist board because I think this mainly affects those who are on waitlists.

Financial Aid / Need $ 4 summer & law school!
« on: April 23, 2006, 07:00:01 PM »
Anyone else graduating from UG and suddenly need to find a full-time job to pay for summer rent and to save for law school?  I'm in a major bind because my 3 part-time jobs are going to end mid-May, when I graduate.  This is very BAD because I have rent due at that time and utilties due at the beginning of every month.  The money that I'll have saved come mid-May will disappear with my first payment... and the next day, I'll be down to nothin'! :o ...I won't even have enough for food or going out... or for future rent/utilities bills!... a.k.a. I need a job in the worst way and my parents can't help me at all.
So, what I want to know is... where is everyone working?  How did you find your job?  Is it a permanent job and are you just going to give your two-weeks in August, or did you actually land a temp. job?  Anyone have any advice for me???  I need to find something ASAP!

Has anyone been accepted off of the St. John's waitlist???  If so, when were you notified?

I am currently leaning toward NYLS, but contemplating the following:
NYLS vs. St. Johns
NYLS vs. Rutgers-Newark
NYLS vs. Seton Hall

I am dead set on working in Manhattan and want to work in a large firm... like the rest of the world, of course. Anyways, I am leaning toward NYLS because of location and a large # of people employed in the city, but am also considering St. John's, Seton Hall, and Rutgers-Newark.
