Acceptances / Re: Rutgers-Newark, anyone?

About housing...I'm planning on living off campus.  I have kind of a weird situation...hubby's in the Army, so he has to stay here in NY where he is stationed, so if I head to Rutgers, it will be alone.  :( 

Can he apply for a transfer? That's what my ex did when we moved from NYC to NJ.

Well maybe that IS what they're proud of the most.  What would the audience think if the dean went on and on about how BLS is better than Columbia, Fordham, and NYU.  I'd probably laugh and walk out.

I think you're right. Sad, isn't it?

But HOW can Columbia, Fordham, and NYU be better when they didn't have...

Geraldo and George?

what's up with brooklyn constantly trying to "buy" us with all their fancy mass mailings, pictures of their hall, and being in "brooklyn."
it seems like they pump a lot more money into inticing students to come, rather than focusing it on createing better programs, getting better faculty, and so on.
my two cents.

Amen to that.

You guys are pretty huge brats huh. 
Both these posters are pointless.

Like your post is overflowing with points.

nylo-just realized you posted this thread a couple of times on different boards...a bit unnecessary. sorry to hear you were unhappy with your experience at brooklyn. however, beginning one thread regarding this topic is probably sufficient.

That was a mistake. I accidentally posted it on the "Acceptances" board and it wouldn't let me delete the thread. I wanted the post in "Where Should I Go Next Fall" because it has more traffic. Sorry if you clicked on both and expected different things.

I also went and completely disagree with the poster. The thing was not supposed to be a formal meeting, but instead a chance to talk to deans and professors. The Brooklyn Law School people were very informative and easy to talk to. They talked about the building for maybe 10 minutes, but why shouldn't they. They just built a really nice residence hall in a great area, and can now use it as a recruiting tool.

I don't mind that she talked about the building. What annoyed me is that it was the ONLY thing she talked about. And again, in light of the fact that BLS is competing with so many great schools in the area, to base their ENTIRE recruiting pitch on a residence hall is a questionnable strategy at best. They could've done such an amazing sales job last night but completely squandered the opportunity IMO.

Off-campus.

Yes (and still trying to recover from sticker shock).

No.

...the only thing going for them is apparently a brand new residence hall!

Yup, that's right. I attended their admitted students reception this evening held at legendary NYC law firm Skadden Arps. I was expecting a razzle-dazzle presentation about their academic program, clinics, distinguished alumni (unless you count Geraldo Rivera and George Ross of "The Apprentice" fame), placement stats and biglaw life (there were, after all, Skadden partners and associates in attendance who are BLS alumni), and most importantly, why we should pick BLS over comparable schools in the area. NADA.

Instead, the Dean gave us a 30-minute bullsh*t presentation - complete with a full-color slide show - about Feil Hall, the newest addition to their student residence buildings in Brooklyn. She showed us floorplans (?!) and bragged about the Starbucks around the corner and the new YMCA next door. Non-smoking building. Wireless internet. 24-hr security. "You'll get key cards - just like a hotel!" That was it. The entire presentation was on the stupid residence.

Are you kidding me?! Big f-ing deal. And unless you're fresh out of undergrad and hasn't experienced the wonders of living in an actual apartment, who the hell wants to live in a dorm anyway?

There goes an hour of my life that I'll never get back.
