Choosing the Right Law School / Entertainment/Media Law Schools
« on: June 25, 2012, 10:59:00 AM »
I am pretty set on studying entertainment/media law. It's about time to start applying to law schools, and I'm undecided on where I should go. As far as entertainment law goes, the schools that offer classes in this concentration are either top 14 law schools or tier 3 law schools. I'm still waiting for my LSAT score (I took it this month) but my gpa is going to hurt me. It's a 3.3 because I worked two jobs all four years of college and evidently was not very good at balancing everything. However I have been scoring around 164 on my practice LSATs, so I'm hoping that will help. I most likely will not apply to NYU or UCLA and waste my money.

I'm looking into Cardozo, Miami, Loyola, Pepperdine, and Tulane for sure. I would love to be in New York, so I'm thinking Cardozo is probably my first choice. But I don't want to move to New York, attend Cardozo, and ultimately face massive competition from NYU and other top NYC law school graduates in the job market. I feel like I would have a good shot at getting into Fordham but they don't offer as many entertainment/media law classes as Cardozo. Should I give up this concentration and try to get into a higher ranked law school? I would be giving up a dream of mine but increasing my likelihood for permanent employment after graduation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
