I've never had much luck studying in libraries.  I'd much prefer to study in the comfortable confines of my own home.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to support myself financially, hence the need to attend PT.  I may attend FT the following year.  It all depends on the money situation.

It's definitely rough having to make split second decisions with so much at stake.  If I were you I would open up MS Word and make two columns, one for Hofstra and one for NYLS.  I would then list the pros and cons for each school.  That's about the best you can do at this point.

Yeah, the Hofstra seat deposit was a killer.  NYLS had not cashed my seat deposit when I received my acceptance letter from Hofstra so I was able to put a stop payment on the check.  I sent them an email notifying them of my decision to withdraw my offer of admission and politely asked them not to deposit my check.  They didn't listen but thankfully I was only out $30 (the fee for the stop payment).  Is it possible for you to put a stop payment on your seat deposit to NYLS as well?  That would go a long way in helping to make the Hofstra seat deposit a bit more manageable.

I hear you, ZBT.  The transfer route is always a possibility if you have your heart set on one of the higher ranked schools in the NYC area.  In that case I would recommend you go to Hofstra.  The grading curve is not brutal and tuition as well as the cost of living are reasonable.  If it makes you feel any better, I sent in my seat deposit to NYLS as well.  My Hofstra acceptance came a few days later.  Good luck, bud.

zbt,

Be skeptical about much of what you read on LSD and forums like it.  Don't base your decision on whether or not to attend NYLS solely by what is posted here.

Law-Man, I'm a non-traditional as well.  I'm 27 and will be turning 28 in December.  See you in a few months.

If you want to practice in CA, I would definitely go to Southwestern.
