Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Fordham or UC Davis?

As a Jersey girl, I say go for Fordham. Granted, I'm biased, but I know their reputation is stellar. They have a great alum network and their average starting salary is not too shabby either.

In at Albany, a local favorite of mine. I'm really hoping they offer a scholarship of some sort though.

Choosing the Right Law School / NJ Law: Seton Hall v. Rutgers N

I know this topic has been posted before, but I'd like some feedback on my situation.

I'm interested in civil rights, constitutional, and labor and employment law. I've been accepted to both schools, and am currently drawn to RU-N because of its cheaper tuition. I plan on visiting during the next two weeks, but I'm just hoping for some feedback about what the key differences are between these schools in terms of job prospects, academics, student life, etc.

Also, if anyone attends either school or knows someone who does, please give me a candid view of what you know.

I would work for a publisher as an assistant and learn about what it takes to be an editor. I'd much rather go to law school though :-)

Choosing the Right Law School / U Pitt

I was just pleasantly surprised to learn that I got into the University of Pittsburgh. Even though I'm pretty well informed about its programs, I know absolutely nothing about the school itself. Could anyone, who either attends or has visited, provide me with info about the facility, the city of Pittsburgh, the student body, and job opportunities? So far, it's the best ranked school I've been accepted to, but I don't have a visit planned until March and I'm inpatient for info...

I'm going to Seton Hall on the 30th, and to Rutgers the 9th for a smaller group tour. I know I'm going to have a tough time choosing between them, but Rutgers' cheaper tuition definitely makes me more interested. Plus, my interest is civil rights and constitutional law. I feel as if Rutgers is more geared toward that, while Seton Hall is a bit more conservative and geared toward fields like corporate and health law.

In terms of atmospheres, I've heard they're incredibly different. Seton Hall is closer to Penn Station (a definite plus) while Rutgers is by UMDNJ and NJIT. This is basically all I know about location....does anyone have more insight after visiting?

I think Pace might move into Tier 2 eventually. For a relatively new law school in the great scheme of things, its environmental law program is top notch and it has a great rep in its area.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Next rankings - predictions

I have no business talking about T14s, but I do want to know what happens between Rutgers-Newark and Seton Hall. I applied to both, and I'm interested to see if SH will keep its better ranking.

Also, UPitt...I know it went down in the rankings last year. After being shocked to see that I got accepted at all, I would love to see it go back up.

I haven't heard of any of those, but I personally have full faith in Drexel.
