How do you not want to spend 3 years at school on Long Island, but want to practice in Long Island?

Acceptances / Re: New England Law Boston
« on: April 11, 2012, 07:30:15 PM »
I looked into New England Law, I don't think its a great choice. It is extremely expensive in combination with Boston's high COL, you are in competition with all of those non four tier schools, unless you are getting a significant amount of money from them, I wouldn't go there. On top of everything else they are about to get sued for lying about their after post graduation employment stats:

Did you apply to CUNY? You sound like a great candidate for them considering you are already an attorney in India. If not they extended their application deadline to April 15th so you have a few days to get it together for them.

Good luck!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Hofstra v.s. Syracuse

I don't know the price of Syracuse, but Hofstra is very expensive. I also live on Long Island and have worked in various law firms, one in the Hofstra area, I wouldn't say Hofstra has that great of a reputation. Thats just IMO though, I would definetely chose Syracuse.

I read somewhere that your student loans shouldn't exceed what you expect to make your first year after graduating. I.E. You should only allow yourself $40,000 worth of debt if you expect your starting salary to be $40,000.00

Why in the name of heaven would you plan to make $40,000 for the rest of your life doing anything other than being the night manager at a Wendies?



I didn't say for the rest of your life, I said your starting salary and it was an arbitrary number anyhow.

If you are using arbitrary numbers why not a billion? If you aren't using real math, then it means jack if trying to make a life decision based on it.

As for first year salary, you get it that you have pay beyond the first year right? You need to pretend you are still in undergrad statistics for a minute on this one. If  you skiped that class, good luck on the lsat.

I don't know why so angry. It one piece of advice I read from an article and you can plug in any numbers you like, it doesn't change what I was asking.  I was asking about the formula.

I would go to Roger Williams. Go to law school and come out in no debt? I don't think it can get any better than that.
