Where should I go next fall? / Re: HOFSTRA

I definetly think we should have a pre-orientation event.   :)  How would we go about doing that?

Oh, and, I picked Hofstra over a lot of Schools, St Johns, Cardozo, Brooklyn Law, NYLS, even Fordham  :o  I think not only the location, but the scholarship and the atmosphere there are great too.  It's just a great place.

It seems like there are alot of us around already, anyone want to have a pre-orientation get together?

Yeah, I would think that would be a great idea!

Oh, and, in response to Hofstra's starting salary thing.  I know two Hofstra alums whose starting salaries were over $100,000 right out of school.  Both graduated in the top of their class, and one of them had connections but not the other.  So it is possible to make a lot of money out of school, I think it just really depends on how great you are at caving into things and getting a chance to interview and interviewing well, etc.

Hi!  Welcome you guys!!!  California is a wonderful place, and I hope to live there someday.  My cousin lives in San Francisco. 

I pay about $1750 a month for a one bedroom, but it is in an AMAZING building.  It has a 24 concierge desk, a huge pool, a gym, a movie theater, a business center and a conference center.  Not to mention 2 levels of parking garage!  You can visit the site, it's www.avalonatglencove.com

:)

Aw, haha.  Yeah, I am from Maryland, well, originally from Brazil but I lived in MD for 10 years and now I am in Glen Cove at the Avalon.  Do you know the area well?  I am looking for a really great hair salon, lol.

Hey, I know the area pretty well. I am from Massapequa...which is I guess 20 minutes or so from Hofstra...I will have to think about the hair salon thing lol, since I have been going to the same hair sylist since I was like ten years old.  :)

This thread made me feel a little better, because I have been nervous after reading stuff on this board too much. Hofstra was my first choice when I began looking at law schools, but then this site and its obsession with rankings freaked me out. I went to the admitted students day too and I was really impressed with the faculty and alumni, and the campus is nice. It also made me realize that some of what people say on here is not really true.

Anyway, I am looking forward to August and meeting people. I am working two jobs now that are terrible and I can't wait to quit and go back to school (we'll see if I will still be thinking that during finals week...) :)

It's nice to meet you!  I am sure I will see you in the fall!  My father really thinks I should go into healthcare law, he is a health economist and my grandfather is an architect that designs hospitals, lol.  So I guess I should be following that thread, although I am more into M&A and intellectual property law.  We'll see.

for those who like rankings, Hofstra is better ranked than NYLS.  And there are great alum connections with city firms.  But it all depends on each person, and what environment in right for them.   :)

Hey guys!  I think Hofstra is a great choice, like I said, the location, the faculty, the resources, the alum connections, the way the school cares about the students, it is all great.  I love Hofstra, and I was really only applying there as a safety.  I was set to go to St Johns and then saw how much better Hofstra is.  And in terms of rankings, if you guys are into that, Hofstra is ranked higher than NYLS and PACE so...I dunno.  Just a thought.  I'll be there! :)

Yeah, I am actually interested in all of them!  :)  The immigration one is definetly great for the times we are living in.  I think first year will keep us busy but we can certainly get involved. Second year will make it a lot easier for us to get involved though.
