Hofstar is offering $25,000 for you to go. Any reasons for choosing Rutgers over it? (just out of curiosity)
Even though this is directed to Littletanuki, I'm taking the liberty of answering since I'm also picking Rutgers over full scholarships elsewhere (Hofstra, St. Johns, Seton Hall, NYLS). I actually like Hofstra a lot, but like Littletanuki, I don't want to live/work in Long Island. I currently live in NJ and want to practice there (maybe Manhattan too), so Rutgers makes more sense than St. Johns or NYLS. As for Seton Hall, it just doesn't seem to have as strong a reputation as Rutgers. I'm leery about going to a school just because it gives me a full scholarship because what happens if I lose it? Some of them have really stringent GPA requirements. I think it's a scam in that the system is set up so that most full-scholarship recipients will not be able to keep their awards for all three years.
