It's coming out on the day many of us need to make deposits.
i would err on the side of caution.
what's so hard about wearing a dress shirt and some slacks? throw on a tie for good measure?
i really don't know about some of you folks
How common is it to study abroad during law school. I'm looking at one semester-long Chinese Law (with 7-semester LL.M option) program in particular at Tsinghua University that I've seen promoted on Boston University's and UPenn's websites. I am also interested in programs in Hong Kong. From what I know, schools are very limited by the ABA in the number of students (4) they can send abroad to the same university in any given year.
Is anyone else interested in studying abroad during law school. I was in China for some time in college and I hope to build on that with further Chinese legal studies expertise.
One of the reasons I chose USC Law was for the networking; the Trojan alumni network is legendary. And the professors do a wonderful job helping you learn to think like a lawyer. They help set the foundation that allows you to see things in different ways. I've also been impressed by the interest they take in our personal success.
After law school, I plan to go into immigration law. As a native of Somalia who grew up in Canada, I have witnessed how much lawyers can do to help people in my position.
I should say this: I know quite a few people we went to UCONN and ended up in good jobs in NYC. It's a good school and in this economy I don't think there really is a difference between UCONN and Fordham, in terms of reach. There both regional schools with ties to the NYC market.
Do you honestly, think that paying full cost is worth it? Keep in mind, it's not just 30k your saving.
The in-state tuition is $20,500. With your scholarship your looking at 10,500, plus you will probably be living at home (right?), so you cut down on the expense of living costs. You can end up after law school with less than 40,000 (UCONN) vs 195k (Fordham)
And, you will have just about the same opportunities in this economy. I'd go with UCONN, if it was just between Fordham and UCONN.
I thought I already posted here, but I apparently not. Anyway, I agree with nycparalegal. Cost of living in NYC is ridic!
But, it's also your choice about where you feel more comfortable. Do what you want but keep in mind the above information. Good luck.
Ugh. Got my scores. 153. Ouch!
When you said AA, you mean African American and not Asian American, right?
