from a T3 to a Top20, being Top 13% of the class... so, the odds are not bad at all!!!

top 25% at NYLS will give you job opportunities at small law firms and solo practitioners or city agencies...

At this point I believe they will send out decisions after the deposit deadline the fill in the empty spots..
I'm in your same situation. I'm all set up with another school and waiting for 3 more. Good luck!

they gave me a scholarship... 10K.... not enough I think....
If they really want to keep good students, they should give out much more money... especially for people like me that are between top 10 and 15%, and that won't transfer to harvard....
anyway, this is my opinion..

i think that NYLS is good for big law if you are in the top 15%... otherwise, it's like you just said. ;)

I finished my first year at NYLS. I managed to end up in the top 15% of the class and I decided to transfer (in at a T20, waitlisted at a T13).
I am very satisfied with the quality of the professors, and I must say that there are a lot of smart students at NYLS. Unfortunately (for the school), many of them transfer after the first year and, therefore, when employers come on campus to recruit, have jsut a bunch of top students who remained there. This is the reason why not many people get jobs with big law firms.... being at the top of your class at NYLS is a great accomplishment and will open you doors in Manhattan. If you know you want to work there, and you don't really care about "school reputation", NYLS is fine with that!
