Hofstra U School of Law / Re: Any opinions?
« on: May 05, 2004, 12:29:32 AM »
Hi, canuck,
Thanks for your offer. Sounds good for me. During last seven years I've been living in Fort Lee, NJ - main Korean community center on East Coast. I know people, they are hardworking, very quiet, ideal neighbors. And I love Korean food! By the way, I just came from Korean restourant ten minutes ago, but I had sushi this time (I am a sushi addict).
My name's Konstantin Levinovsky. Came from Moscow, Russia in 1991. I am a bit older than you, graduated ..16 years ago. My undergrad and grad years were fantastic, and I got stock mentally in these years forever. So I still young inside. Do not worry - I am quiet guy, no laud music/TV, favorite activity - reading. I worked out 2-3 times a week in my gym, even started low-cholesterol diet recently. I'd like to improve myself in many directions.
I am going PT evening, and I am not planning to work at least first semester, because I don't know how can I manage this after all these years.
I see mutual benefits for both of us in your offer. For example,
as a local guy w/car I can show you everything in NYC area etc.

I saw this double room in a New Residence Hall. It looks OK w/private bathroom and small hall w/additional bed (for guests?). Rooms are separate and big enough. And they mentioned some other areas for law students, but I didn't see them.
So I am gladly accept your offer. The only problem I see is some requirements on application. It is said that roomates request must be mutual, and application and deposit for both parties should be submitted in the same envelope.
What we're gonna do? Should I send my application w/deposit tomorrow or should I wait? If they need my appl with yours I can bring it in personally tomorrow.
Let me know.

Hi, canuck,
Looks like you're all set w/Hofstra. Congrats! I hope you will like it. I myself also sent deposit over there a few days ago. Since then got last two rejection letters, and looks like ...    I am all set w/Hofstra as well.
Recently I broke up w/my girlfriend, and I am thinking about renting something at Hofstra vicinity or even on campus. I am wondering what's your plan. And what do you think about graduate student housing? They gave us a tour on Admitted Student Day - looked fine for me. Lack of commuting, close contact w/guys from school, and available furniture would be a plus. But I am not sure how it will be in term of privacy. Never live in situation like that before. I need you opinion.
Talk to you soon.

Hi, canuck, and thanks for your words!
My friend in Shulte, Roth happens to be a ...Buffalo graduate.
She liked the school. Her 1L wasn't very good, then she aced up
2L&3L, made some secondary Law Review and graduated Magna Cum Laude. Among young associates she knows one more from her school and four from Hofstra.
Salary difference can be probably explained by the fact that majority of graduates are employed locally.
I understand your concern about money. Actually I am still waiting from two less expensive schools, Rutgers and even (!)
CUNY.
So if you think about NYC Big Law, Hofstra is better known, but if you can make Buffalo closer to the top of the class, you're OK.

Hi, Greg,

Hofstra has day and eve PT. On eve you have two options for the 1L week:

1) Contracts, Torts, Civ Pro
   3 days, Mon - Wed, 6PM-10PM
2) All above + Property
   4 days, Mon - Thu, 6PM-10PM

Speaking of library, theoretically you can reach everything on-line. But on early stage some "physical" research probably required.
If you have more than a year ahead, I would suggest reading for future classes using "Planet Law School II" book method.

I hope this will help you.

I am NYC part-timer as well. You can see my data on http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com (user ID - "KL"). I am just curious about your choices. For now mine is Hofstra (eve), but I am still waiting for the others.

Thanks,

Hi, canuck,

Quite frankly, both Pace & Hofstra looks good for me. Pace even has a beautiful campus, people are very friendly.

Hofstra looks good as well, but it has higher ranking, more reputable faculty. All attorneys I talked to advised me to take
Hofstra v. Pace. And I probably will do that if nothing came up
from others.

Do you have your data on http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com ?
Mine is under "KL" user ID.

Thanks, canuck, and congrats!

I applied to PT day. Then they informed me about new PT eve pgm
as additional choice. I agreed for both and was admitted for eve.

My friend in Shulte, Roth & Zabel said they have Hofstra graduates. By the way, this Sun.,March 28 in 10 AM there will be Admitted Student Reception in Hofstra. I'll be there.

Tomorrow I'll visit the same event in Pace (my other choice for know, still waiting for couple others...)

I'll keep you posted.
