How are job prospects from your knowledge?

I know the school is very new and has provisional accredition. Has that effected you in any way? internships? quality of teaching?

when did you apply? I applied and didn't get a decision either. Although I didn't really expect anything as I applied late February.

I placed an application there and just wanted to get some insight as to how the school is viewed in California.  I would love to in LA so if I got in I would strongly consider it, Going to Lakers games(huge fan) and the ability to work in a warmer area is big to me.

For some reason it finally started working.

300 dollars in the long run isnt a big deal especially when it means going to the school of your choice.

Is it better to go to a lower tiered school (3rd, not 4th) than a 2nd tier?  If I am at the top of my class at Pace or NYLS will I have a better chance of a better job than if I am the middle of the road at Cardozo or Brooklyn?

How "at the top"?  10%,  5%?

I was wondering the same thing.. For example is it better to be top 10% at Howard or to be top 33% at Rutgers Camden.

its worth noting that Camden, N.J. is top 5 for the most crime in the U.S. 

I grew up 5 minutes from Camden, NJ. It's bad, really bad. But you can just live in Cherry Hill or another town.  If you know how to handle yourself you will be fine. I applied there and I am waiting for a decesion. I would go because of instate tuition and I can stay with in my brother's apartment for close to nothing.

yeah I have a year of left to play to bball but Im not sure its worth it. I think I'll just workout with the team and stuff because Im not trying to have my grades suffer for it. But the thought did cross my mind. Its just that 2 1/2 - 3 hour practices plus games and travel is very demanding when trying to compete with people who dont have that burden.

I went to college on a full athletic schlorship and will prob be at a tier 2, hopefully state. What is the difference between this and someone taking a risk going to get a undergrad degree. Im not going into law for the money.

By the way,

This was by no means a flame. I just wanted to tell you straight up how difficult it will be with your stats.
That's all
good luck again

I appreciate that, Id rather here the truth then have it sugar coated. I didnt even want to apply to some schools but my parents just said sent them becauase "you never no if dont try". I thought I was gonna do better to better on the LSAT but I totally screwed up one game and it killed my score but I guess every1 thinks they could have done better. I messed up in undergrad, had 3 deaths in my family, my brother got locked up for a  while and I took it pretty hard. For a while I was gonna go overseas and play ball but decided against it to kill myself with law school.

I have been doing some research and added some more school that I will apply to on monday. Im just gonna cast a wide net. Hopefully someone will take a chance and I'll get into a decent school(Rutgers-Camden would nice because I live very close)
