I really don't like school and tier bashing, and I think Hofstra is a great school, but I would try to tranfer up if I were you especially if you can get back into a top 5 school. There are only a few schools were the name makes an absolute difference, ant it is probably the top eight or so, but especailly the top 5.
Granted, you will probably get a great job coming from Hofstra (or pretty much any school of you work at it), but don't handcuff yourself 20 or so years down the road, if say you want to be a judge, professor, or some sort of appointed high level position. The big name schools have a definate impact on those types of opportunities, just look at Harrieit Miers. One (of many) complaints about here was that she was not intellectually qualified. People probably would not have questioned her intellect as much if she was another Yale Grad.
