I notice that New York Law has a slightly harsher curve than most schools. Do you feel like the school attempts to "weed" people out or is more of a supportive environment? With the Comprehensive Curriculum Program I am surprised that anyone could be dismissed for academic reasons. Any comments on that?

Great. Can you comment on the job prospects in general? Is there alot of on-campus recruiting? Where do most of the graduates go? How has your experience been thus far?

I totally agree. I have heard people on this board make such accusations as the statistics were made up or those that account for the employment rate were not emplyed in the legal field. I agree, those accusations are obsurd.

Do you attend New York Law by any chance?

Thanks for the encouragement. However, if I fail to finish in the top of my class at NYLS does that make me "unemployable"?

I am interested in going into a small-midsized firm or government agency out of law school. How are the job prosepcts at New York Law? Although I hear alot of criticism towards New York Law on this board, stats show that 93% are employed by 9 months after graduation which is not bad.

If the mandatory curve exists for each class, in order for someone to be below the required OVERALL GPA, that person would have to be at the bottom of the curve for almost every class, correct?

Just trying to understand it all.

Thanks for the response. I have pretty much decided to go to Syracuse at this point. How would you describe the workload? How many hours a day do you put into studying? Do you have time for leisure activity? I read in Princeton Review's book that the courseload is challenging, especially the 5 credit courses.
