I went to the Hofstra admitted student reception and was very impressed with how organized and how courteous they were. I went to a big state school, University of Maryland at CP, for my undergrad and really didn't like the way they treated us students and how disorganized they seemed to be. I also think that Hofstra is a relatively new Law School, established in 1970, so for the time it has been around it has an amazing program. They had the best hiring period in the NY area this year, hiring some of the best corporate law professors out there, and, starting this fall, they will be the first law school to require international law as a core 1st year class. That is very important for a growing globalized world. I am sure many schools will follow their footsteps. I got into many great schools, most of them better ranked than Hosftra. But I really believe that the school is improving each year, that their faculty is amazing, that the campus and location are great, and that thei scholarships make it worth a try. I think that it is not the school that makes your competence, it is a combination of what you are taught and how well you learn it. I sent in my deposit this week. I hope to meet some people who might go there in the fall cause I am new to Long Island too.
