the only reason i asked is bc i recently went to my UG instituion's 'pre-professional advisor' and she gave me all the stats on law school applicants from my school last year. reading these boards pretty religiously, i had an idea of what NYLS was like. seeing as my UG is elite liberal arts, i was surprised to see that 4 students from my UG actually matriculated there.
Uhh yeah, UG pre-prof advisors are generally not very helpful. Mine told me I should strongly look at "Seton Hall" and "Franklin Pierce." She told me this was because I am from NJ therefore Seton Hall is a good choice, and I was an engineer so "Franklin Pierce provides a solid IP program."
What's wrong with Seton Hall, exactly? I've heard that it has a pretty solid reputation. It's definitely not comparable with Franklin Pierce at all.
