Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Cornell WL

fordham over cornell/michigan? interesting

I'll be an evening student, working during the day. The cost between all three schools is about the same, but I decided that I'd rather keep myself from the insane debtload of going to school full-time.  :-\

Withdrawn via phone call.  Best of luck to those still on the waitlist!

found out today by phone, I spent a year at Cornell, so I'm familiar with the area and the school.  Thanks for everyone's input!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In off Cornell WL

So I got in off the WL and have to respond ASAP, looking for advice. 

-No word on financial aid, but I'm assuming it won't be much (assume 150k debt).
-I was set on Fordham part-time (financial + family reasons).
-If I attend Fordham, I would continue working at my current firm (small, modest pay, but very relevant to my legal interests and would permit me to graduate with minimal (maybe 50k?) debt). 
-I'm 100% sure I want to practice in NY, and both schools are great for placement in the city, but Fordham would allow me to network with more people in my area of interest.

I already passed on Michigan, would I be crazy to even consider Cornell?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Debt and Michigan
« on: April 14, 2006, 11:43:06 AM »
I'm facing a similar decision, but my situation is much different.  My choices are Michigan w/ almost no $ or part-time at Fordham while working at a firm and possibly getting tuition reimbursement.  I love Michigan, but the thought of that much debt scares me.  Right now I'm leaning towards Fordham not so much because of the money issue, but because of the experience I would be gaining during those four years.  I think in your situation Michigan is clearly better since you have no idea what you want to do upon graduation.  A Michigan degree would open up so many more opportunities. In the end it depends on what your goals are, and if you don't have any specific ones, why take a risk by closing off opportunities? Also, if you don't think Biglaw is for you, then go with the lower ranked school, but Michigan supposedly has a good LRAP.  Bottom line, when in doubt, go with the bigger name.

Reserve as well... I guess this is a waitlist? Either way, Cornell can blow me...their customer service sucks.

I'll second that.

Thirded.  :P


I'd love to run the marathon someday, hopefully in the next year or two. I started running a year ago and absolutely love it, but I don't think I'm ready for a marathon yet. If anyone's interested in training, I'd be happy to meet up, just don't expect me to be there this November!  ;D
