Here's the thing...I live in jersey now, and I would probably take a job in NJ because frankly I don't really want to work in the city.  It gets exhausting very quickly.

Here's the crazy part though.  I have an apartment set up for me about 15 minutes from SJU...then again, I could take the train to newark which would be a 1.5 hour commute each way.  Even if I were to stay in jersey i would have to drive an hour and 15 minutes to reach newark, so I'd probably rather live in new york and commute to newark (it would be part time evening so it wouldnt be that bad)...

I'm leaning towards Seton Hall though, because youre right...NYC has tons of schools and NJ only 3, all of which are competitive

Choosing the Right Law School / Seton Hall or St. John's?

I'm in at Seton Hall but still didn't get accepted to St. John's (not expecting it).  But in case I do, which school is better? 

I slept through probably 20% of my classes during the past four years.  I don't understand why any school would schedule econ classes for 9am.  Or into political science classes at 1pm. 

well i didnt mean it in a literal sense...i mean like it was easy and i did little studying

i have yet to literally fall asleep in class though

I have to say, I really did not study much, or at all, during undergrad.  I'm a finance major at a well known private university.

The material was easy, and the only studying i did was an hour before the test...

i think it's people like me who will have to suddenly adapt to law school...

you know the one time you think it's gonna be more junk it's going to be the decision...



you should really try CUNY Queens...they have a very low avg. LSAT and are strictly public interest.  You would be a good match and would have a much better shot than any of those other schools you applied to.

During the summer I lived in the city and took an hour train to my internship in CT and would get quite a bit of reading done (though writing was never quite so easy).

i would have a laptop to do that for me  ;)

thanks for the advice made a seemingly insane idea sound reasonable...

Stupid question, but have you ever actually tried to read while on a commuter train?  I only ask because I once considered a similar situation but got sick trying to read and ride at the sime time.  For me, the drive would be worth it...

I was thinking the same...I might still go this route except I won't do much studying unless absolutely necessary.

Anyone here think it's crazy if I were to live 1.5 hours away from school and do some work on the train ride?  I would be taking public transportation solely...just wanted to hear some feedback...

Is it even possible to effectively study on the train?

I have some experience with this so i thought I would comment. By all means it is very possible to study on a train. Just get some earplugs because you run into the occassional loud cell phone conversation.

But i would think twice before deciding to live 1.5 hours away form your school. Seems like a major inconvenience if you have to appear short notice or you have classes spaced out. etc.

well here's the thing

it will be part time evenings, so i'll only do it 3-4 times a week.  The only other alternative is for me to drive there which would only shave off half an hour, but then again i won't be able to study on the commute.

I know you go to Rutgers Newark so here's the situation...I'll probably going to seton hall and commuting from new york (near queens) where i conveniently have an apartment already set up with roommates.  My only other option is to stay at home with the parental units in princeton but thats still an hour ride by car.

i dunno...i think i can swing it...
