Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Hello? Villanova? Where are you?
« on: April 13, 2007, 07:01:30 AM »
I called on wednesday and they said my letter would be sent in the next few days and i've been waitlisted.

I don't really know too much about Pace but i did take the LSAT there and the school is nice/good facilities etc. But i don't know much about the professors or placement. You should probably go visit all the schools since you're unsure. I think Hofstra and Pace rank about the same but you might have a bit more diversity in the students at Pace, I have a feeling Hofstra is mainly comprised of kids from long island.

What about Pace though? Because that is where I am leaning towards

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 3 choices. Must decide soon!!

If i was in your position I would definitely go to Albany. I think you can get a job out of all 3 of these schools if you do well and really hustle for a job. I know people who went to Hofstra and said that they thought the education and faculty was really poor but they have secured good jobs (they said they were only some of the few in their class to do so though) and i think it is the same with NYLS-it used to have a decent reputation but it has went down. I think Albany is the best choice (you're close to NYC) but you will not have the NYC living expenses and Albany has a strong alumni network that will help  you.

 I applied to many of the same schools as you and have pretty much decided to attend Buffalo Law (unless i get off the waitlist at my top choice) mainly b/c it has a good ranking and the tuition cannot be beat (though it may be the same price for you if you got scholarships to Albany and Syracuse). I asked some students at Buffalo about job placement in NYC and i was told it's at 25%-and this is b/c only about this many actually want to work in NY. Basically if you choose to get a job in NY you will. The other people want to stay Upstate.  St Johns has great employment opportunities in NYC but for me personally, since i plan to work in public interest or at a small law firm, the cost of attendence is too much when i can go to Buffalo and come out with out much debt.

I've narrowed my choices down to Pace, Albany, or Hofstra.  Should I consider Syracuse or Buffalo if I want to live/work in the NYC area?  Or for any other reasons?  Here is my LSN:

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Buffalo ASW

Hi-I'm thinking of heading up to visit. I just got notification of my acceptance today and i'm in state so Buffalo is looking really good right now. Not sure when i'd be going to visit yet.

Thanks!! Phew-i'm so relieved.

I noticed that in the report sent do law schools my transcript is not included. I'm worried b/c i double majored and took many 300-400 level classes in undergrad. (400 level classes had a mixture of grad and undergrad students). My GPA is not steller and i don't think it is fair to compare it to a GPA of someone who took a lot of entry level classes.

OConnerScribe-i have very similar numbers to you and have applied to many of the same schools. I think Brooklyn is probably a big reach for us and maybe even st. johns. I spoke to St. Johns admisson dean at their prospective student night and he told me that i am in a grey area-he kind of gave me the impression that i might be more likely to get in  part time. I think you have a good shot at buffalo, syracuse and will most definitely get into Albany.

If you have time to read these (each one is less than a page) I would REALLY REALLY love you forever!

I know this is not on topic but the PS thread is totally dead. Would anyone be willing to read my short responses to an application essay question?
