Where should I go next fall? / Re: Brooklyn or Rutgers-Newark

Everything you said is spot on. Rutgers will likely be significantly cheaper, but Brooklyn is a better school for starting up in the city. That isn't to say that Rutgers is bad, but as you pointed out the alumni network is stronger and being in the city itself is a huge advantage. If you can afford it I'd definately go to Brooklyn.

What's that in his right hand?

Confront them both together. He'll either have to call her a liar to her face, which would end anything they might have, or admit to you that they are together, which lets you know where you stand.

Law School Applications / Re: GGU & ABA Probation

I agree with Mugatu. If that were the only place you got into then I would go and be prepared to work really hard. First of all, it isn't all that rare that a school goes on probation, but it is rare that a school will actually lose accreditation and not recover. Second, even if they do lose accreditation that doesn't preclude you from practicing within the state. There are tons of non-ABA accreditted schools that produce lawyers that practice under the state bar. It will be much harder and you'll need to work to get there though, as most people in that situation end up as legal aides. Finally, if you work hard, are near the top of your class, and GGU does happen to lose its accreditation then you can always transfer. Its my understanding that the credits you would earn at GGU while it was under probation would still transfer to an ABA accreditted school so why not? Ultimately, I am a firmly believe that it is never advantagous to take time off before law school unless absolutely necessary and I really do believe GGU will recover.

Disagree... Hillary will run & win.

Law School Applications / U of MN deadline waiver?

Anyone else get this today? I'm thinking its the same as the Columbia mailing a couple of weeks ago and just an attempt to boost numbers. Except, Columbia waived the app. fee too. No need to get cheap on us here MN =P

Acceptances / Re: In at Hofstra - any advice?

I would think so. Long Island seems to be where a lot of their alumni end up so I would think networking there shouldn't be too difficult.

I also applied to Hofstra because of the free application. I did do some research on it though and it appears to be a pretty decent program. Its my understanding that it places very well on LI and alright in the rest of the NYC. According to NALP some pretty good firms recruit from Hofstra as well. Also, I've spoken to several people involved in the legal community in NYC. The impression I got was that, as far as NY schools go, Columbia & NYU were, of course, on top, followed by Brooklyn & Cardozo, and then followed by St. John's & Hofstra, & lastly schools like NY Law, Syracuse, SUNY, etc. Do note though that the people I spoke with were talking about their experiences which were entirely restricted to law in NYC.

Honestly, any school in or around NYC will place you well for getting a good job in the city. What you have to remember is that you're just going to have to rank higher amongst your class mates the lower down the totem you go. Good luck in your decision.
