Which is a better school (in terms of jobs after graduation and campus life)... Brooklyn Law School or NYLS?

well.. Brooklyn is higher ranked than NYLS so id imagine it might be a little bit easier to find employment in competitive areas. But i think im leaning towards NYLS bc of the location and possibility that their improvements might cause it to rise into the top 100.

Location is the school's biggest asset.  Proximity to courts, law firms, and wall street is a huge plus.  Plenty of opportunities to network w/ lawyers and judges, and possibly do interships/externships during school.

But the real question is whether this will actually lead to jobs after graduating.  The school's reputation and cost also need to be considered.

I'm trying to decide between NYLS full time or Seton Hall part time evening.  I have visited both, and was impressed with both.  SHU is ranked higher, but commuting to Jersey from long island will be miserable (I will be living on LI for just my first year).  Hopefully I will make up my mind in the next few days.

Good luck.


I agree.. the location is amazing! I know the cost of the school is high but i imagine its due to the recent renovations and possibly bc the high cost of nyc..but yeah it is high comparably. But really i dont mind the cost as long as i can find a loan to add it to. I think im pretty much sold on this one.. unless employment prospects are bad for graduates or theres something that is just awful that i havent found out yet. Otherwise, i think i have a very good chance of getting in and being able to eventually practice law.

Good luck to you too! SHU is good too.. i believe the availability of a joint degree in international affairs would suggest they have a strong concentration in international law  if that is of any interest to you.

BeachBoy, thanks for the advice!

RobWreck, thanks for the St. Johns idea..  havent looked into that yet. Also, you think NYLS is a "safety"? - thats great bc i really just want to go to nyc and get a law degree from somewhere decent!

again... has anybody actually been to NYLS & have opinions on it?

thanks

You have a great shot at NYLS and Pace.  But unless you up your LSAT to the mid-160s, your GPA is going to hold you back from Cardozo and Fordham.  I believe the median GPA at Cardozo and Fordham is 3.50.  But the subpar GPA can be overcome with a few years of significant work experience.  Nevertheless, NYLS is a great school in a great location.  Good luck!

thanks! and also...Cardozo i would be applying pt too (although its not really pt u just start in the summmer but they have a lower lsat range).

I got into NYLS and I'm going there this Fall!
I think it's a good school but one has to work hard (like any other school...) ;D

have u visited NYLS?? I think the remodel is great for the immediate needs and maybe bring more opportunity to future alumni..maybe. I want to work for a firm doing non corporate litigation ( i think now)...I know it would probably be difficult to get employment with "big" firms, but i think being able to work in some sort of firm setting is still a good possibility..? What attracted you to NYLS?
