I say stay at Cardoza, you still have the name of the school. What happens if you transfer to CUNY and for some reason aren't able to do a lot better. Also I doubt many from CUNY go into big law either; and don't forget there are other things besides Big law and small firm. Maybe you will have to take a job for 50/60K at first but you can work up. As far as part-time, that might be good, I think if you could get a job in the industry somewhere to get experience, that might help. For instance, go to a large company that you might want to work in-house for. When I was in NYC I worked for Sony, I have a feeling if i had stayed I could have become in-house just because I got to know everyone there including HR. What about working for a bank in the legal dept?
Also keep in mind that that some people do worst there IL year and are able to pick up from there.
good luck, I can almost assure you you're through the worst
