Law School Admissions / Re: New York Law School... NYC law schools

oh yeah, and the money... the fact that Im willing to take that much in loans shows that I do care about quality legal education.

And also, those of you posting a few of you I believe said you are at or considered brooklyn, st johns, seton, etc... which would be hypocritical for you to be saying Im not aware of the financial end.

and to be honest, its true I dont care what it costs- i want to go to the best law school that I can get into and i dont care what it costs. If i get in and theres a loan to cover it, then it works for me.

um, yeah I do care about getting a quality legal education...otherwise why would i bother even looking into it at all? If I were that careless I wouldnt be even looking at this site. I've already looked at princeton review, lsac, us news, NALP, and looked at apartment costs and area maps, I've got the law school bulletins, I've talked with alumni, etc. The only thing I havent done is actually gone to the area and toured the schools.

yeah, of course the social attraction to the city is great. But there are many educational/practical benefits to new york that I'm equally or more concerned with.

Syracuse is an option, so is seton hall, and in my opinion if fordham, brooklyn, or cardozo dont work out I think those are decent options.

yeah, i think i like syracuse a bit as well. And im interested in the masters in public administration and they have a joint degree there in that. Plus weekend trips might not be out of question even from syracuse. I dont mind seton hall either tho, and i have family in jersey too. I think theres some options there.

Syracuse has dropped out of T2, but it is a venerable old institution with a strong alumae network. If you can get into Cardozo or Brooklyn, more power to you. If not, I would choose 'Cuse over NYLS in a heartbeat.

'cuse over seton hall?

to add another possibility... what are your thoughts on Syracuse law & placement in NYC after graduation?

yes, I'm planning on applying to fordham pt, cardozo (early entry/pt), brooklyn pt, seton hall pt, and nyls ft for schools in nyc area. I would like to live somewhere in the southern part of mahattan regardless of what school, but i will also look in the boroughs nearby as well. Not going to law school isnt really an option Im going to consider, I want to go and I want to practice law. If I cant get a firm job immediately afterward I believe there are other options and just because the firm job doesnt immediately become a possibility doesnt mean that i couldnt get one after a few years of legal experience say in the government sector or clerkships.

also, you are probably thinking that im only applying to the schools that i listed on here- which would be incorrect. I am applying to around 10 schools, although they are all in the northeast- pittsburgh, syracuse, boston, nyc area, etc. I just would prefer to go to new york.

Maybe queens is the same distance by train, but it doesnt look that way when you look at a map. Regardless, I am not interested in st johns so queens doesnt make much impact on this anyway. I'll strongly look into applying to brooklyn  & seton hall both pt in addition to fordham, cardozo, and nyls (still absolute last). I'm also still applying to the masters program in public administration at nyu & new school.

Where am I from? - I lived in Cape May, NJ for several years but have been in south florida most recently. I also went to college for some of the time in buffalo, ny.

Im not interested in applying to rutgers newark, for a number of reasons.

additionally, I think there has been enough comments just generally disagreeing and saying that i am naive. I have looked into this as much as possible short of actually going in person. If you disagree show some kind of evidence as to why.

Are the PT programs really that much easier to get into? A 2.9 159 would have almost zero shot of getting into the Carzozo full-time program, and literally none at Fordham. How does this part-time thing work? Are these programs prevalent at other schools? Is it something worth considering?

well, i obviously cant say for sure bc i havent been admitted yet or even applied until october. But, from what it shows on lsac, many higher ranked schools have pt programs with much lower numbers.
