Where should I go next fall? / Re: Albany Law School v Suffolk University
« on: October 29, 2010, 11:00:37 AM »
I vote Albany
reasons:
It has a lower cost of living.
Less competition. 5 Boston schools, plus t14, plus huge class sizes at suffolk = saturated market.
Albany owns the capitol district/hudson valley area.
NYC is better than boston (albany only couple hours from manhattan).
lastly, because UPSTATE IS f-ing AWESOME!!!!

2L job search / working during 2L year
« on: June 24, 2010, 01:22:16 PM »
In an effort to secure employment or at least, make some contacts, would it be better for me to work during 2L year at a small firm. Assuming oci goes bust wouldn't this be my best chance at trying to catch on with a firm? anyone try this before/currently?

guess we will have to agree to disagree. I think the weather is standard for the region. as for the city, I found it had a lot of character and was a lot of fun.

did you go to syracuse?

overall good post until you got to the weather. Look it up, Cuse has same weather as everywhere else in the northeast. It's not like when its 35 degrees in cuse its f-ing 50 in connecticut. If you are not from the northeast than I can understand a surprise at the weather, but I gotta laugh at kids from other northern states that think it cold in cuse just because someone told them to think so. Buncha f-ing suckers.

I know they reimburse for a one night hotel stay.  In their ASD brochure I believe they specify 5 hotels that are acceptable for this.  Of the 5 I hear the Sheraton is best because it is right on campus.

Yawn.

Hey, I can't really argue anecdotal evidence v. anecdotal evidence.  I just thought I would put my 2 cents out there as someone born and raised in Syracuse.

If you're from Syracuse than why do you dump on the city?  Jesus man, have some pride.  You only get one hometown and you should treat it with some respect even if it isn't what you think you deserve. 

If your city deserves dumping on, it deserves dumping on. The city that I'm basically from blows and I let people know about it.

I'd rather have an honest opinion than someone blowing smoke up my ass, personally.

Did you ever think that by consistently bombing your city you're not doing any good?  However I do agree that people can become frustrated by their hometowns.  I am from the downstate area but I have spent a lot of time with family in Central and Western NY and I don't see why people there are so agitated.  I mean, if you think Buff or Cuse suck than try living in some hick town for a while; than you'll be clamoring for one of these cities.  Plus large cities like NYC or Philly aren't all there made out to be, especially for future lawyers who have to work sick hours just to make rent.  A better idea, I think would be to handle your business upstate with the low col and take a few weekend trips to Manhattan to party.  This is my best of both worlds scenario.  Anyways, to those of you who want out of town I wish you luck in whatever school/city you chose.

I got accepted with a 26K per year scholarship today. I'm really considering going to SUCOL now.

What are the conditions of your scholarship?
