when they do that

slow it down

make them repeat themselves

repeatedly

it will make you feel soooooooooo good   ;D


unless your the new yorker.  :P

that's nice.  you're insulting everyone from NY, including me, b/c a couple of knuckleheads from NY rubbed you the wrong way.

i've been looking into the possiblity of living in the Orlando area.  i'm concerned about the spike in crime. how bad is it?  can someone from the area elaborate a little.  i ask b/c i do have a child that would be attending h.s. there & i would not want to move into an area where he would become a target.
is there a lot of gang activity, drugs, etc?

Hi guys,

I'm still waiting to hear back on admission from these schools, but I am going for Public interest and wanted to know what opinions are out there on these ny schools.

Now obviously, it would be better to go to NYU, Fordham, Columbia, or Cardozo, but as I would never be admitted to those schools, please don't say as much.

Does one have better facilities?  Atmosphere? 
How about administration?  CUNY seems a little in the dark ages technologically from an admissions end, but is that what the campus is really like?

Also for Pace, how bad of a commute is it from White Planes to NYC?  Is it is realistic to live in White Planes and extern in the city?



Any help would be great.  I will be unable to visit before making a decision, so I'd love to steal the information you all have recieved.  I live in Florida where commutes take forever, and the nearest large town/city is always 2-4 hours away.  I'm not used to the distances up north and if things are practical commutes or not. 

Thanks.

CUNY doesn't have a campus.  It has one bldg & is located next to a h.s. on a busy street in Flushing Queens.

the commute from White Plains to NYC is about 25-30 min.  it's absolutely doable to intern in Manhattan & live in White Plains.

i'm in the process of setting up visits to the same schools as well, (going to NYLS next mo.) so when i find out more, i'll let you know.

In talking to people that I know who have gone through law school and are still in law school, I've gotten mixed reviews on the FT/PT programs. 

Those that I know who are in PT programs have always said it is a challenge.  You HAVE to manage your time wisely.  (Which is a given)  Since you will still have responsibilities with your employer, it can be difficult.  Those that I spoke to who had employers that knew they were in law school, stayed PT all the way through.  The one person who didn't, transferred into FT his 2nd year.  (Most people I know that are FT tell me it's best to go full time)

The main thing is knowing whether or not you can handle the time contraints and pressures while still devoting yourself to a job, as well as the cost.  If it isn't feasible to go FT, then at least there is the option of going PT.  The jury is still out for me... :-\

the people that i work for seem to want to make the situation even more difficult than it already is.  i've seen 2 employees who have worked here & attended ls during the evening.  my employer, along w/the other attys who work here would still demand that these 2 employees would work late hrs (making them late for class) & they would make several phone calls to these people while they were in class.  i know that if i continued to work here & go to school, i would still be responsible to my employer, but i also see the way the attys are here.  the phone calls during class seem to be a form of sabotage.

if i decide to go p/t, i wouldn't continue to work where i am now.

i am about to start the application process & i too am looking for advice on whether i should apply to p/t or f/t programs.  i have been leaning towards leaving my job & going f/t b/c if i continue to work f/t & go to school during the evenings, that will probably leave me w/about 1-2 hrs a day to be w/my son during the wk.  i'm also afraid to leave him free bet the hours that school lets out until 10 or 11 o'clock @ nite.  he's 13, so he can take care of himself, but he's 13 & i remember being very curious & experimenting w/alot of things @ during my early teens.  my son is a good kid for the most part, but i think that i would be asking for trouble if i were to leave him alone 4 evenings out of the week.

does anyone have any thoughts on which program i should choose?  if i go f/t, i'll definitely have to take out more money for loans.  if i go p/t, the loan amt will be lower, but i almost feel as if i would be paying a heavier price, time lost w/the kid. (who by the way, thinks i should go p/t.  he's afraid of me quitting my job.)

Isn't it little late to apply to this cycle?  A lot of schools have March deadline and application process takes a lot of time (writing statements and such).

Your GPA and LSAT combo would largely determine where you should apply.

i'm not applying for this cycle.  i'm applying for fall '08.
