At a place like Ave Maria, okay, I may understand where the OP is coming from.  But not at St. John's.

I know of several Hofstra grads who have gone on to do amazing things. One example that comes to mind is the Nassau County DA, who graduated from Hofstra and eventually became a chief Assistant US Attorney in Philly, one of the most competitive jobs in the country to get. Hofstra, in my opinion is not only a better school, but has significantly higher job prospects.

Kathleen Rice graduated from Touro, not Hofstra.

I went to Farmingdale High School.  Graduated back in 1997.  I guess we live on opposite sides of Broadway.  :)

chevelle,

I'm from Massapequa as well.  North Massapequa to be exact.  Did you go to high school in the area?

Did you go to the admitted student orientation?  How was it?  Were the other students friendly?

Yeah, I hear what you are saying.  I have to take what I read on this place with a grain of salt.  I'll otherwise be jaded by the whole law school experience before ever stepping foot on campus.  :)

I meant to ask you in my previous post but I apparently forgot.  Are you interested in any of the five clinics that Hofstra offers?  If so, do you know how difficult it is to become involved with one of them?  I don't know what type of law I will get into but I'm very interested in the Political Asylum (Immigration) Clinic.  Sounds like a great experience.

Hi Camila.  Nice to know someone before classes begin.  I'm Paul.  My aim screen name is dok101.  I'm really excited about going to law school but at the same time I'm afraid I won't be up for the task.  Reading some of the posts on here makes me think that I'll have to be at the very top of the class to have decent job prospects.  I sometimes tell myself to avoid this place.  I'm glad there is finally someone who is concrete about attending Hofstra.  :)

LSN=Law School Numbers - The home site is www.lawschoolnumbers.com

Go to this link and you will find a list of individuals who have been admitted to Hofstra for the upcoming year.

http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/search_schools.php?action=search&school_code=2295&lsat1=&lsat2=&fee_waiver=0&status=3&gpa_lsdas1=&gpa_lsdas2=&attending=0&cycle=3&gpa_degree1=&gpa_degree2=&withdrawn=1&program=1&index1=&index2=&state=0&application_type=0&scholarship1=&scholarship2=&sex=0&multiple_lsat=0&urm=0&x=33&y=8&international=0

Click on their names to find out more about their situation.  Some may not be attending Hofstra but have not gotten around to withdrawing as of yet.   


I think I may purchase some of the commercial outlines for the classes.  But I may get the texts as well and do a quick read of some of the material.
