OMG this is sad!!!

OMG that makes no sense!!!

Iím not against those that have to take the medications because they need it. But come on, Crystal Meth??? That is neither necessary nor helpful.

I went to the open house as well, and everyone seem really nice. However, I did find that a lot of the students complained more than they gave positives about the school. The told me that if you are not in the top 10% of the school that you are most likely not even going to matter. The school cares a lot about its top 10%, but not the rest.

Mconnett I see in your LSN that you got accepted to CUNY law as well congrats!!! You interested in public interest?

Yes, and actually, CUNY was my initial #1 pick last fall when I decided to go to law school. I visited the campus for an open house in December and was impressed (the professor who gave the sample class was SUPERB, and the Dean -- who I met earlier at the law forum in Boston -- is very cool.)

A bit to my surprise, however, I have decided not to go to CUNY. The primary consideration for me in declining CUNY is $$. I happened to get a few nice scholarships at some other schools, and thus, it became harder to justify spending an extra 40K to go to CUNY. I am currently planning, therefore, on going to Temple in Philly.

That all said, I don't think ANY school in this country has anything resembling the same commitment to public interest that CUNY does. It simply blows all other schools out of the water in terms of incorporating public interest into the core fabric of its mission. So, yea, I would definitely recommend it over NYLS given your interests.


Thank you this is very helpful info. I have not pay a visit to the school, but I definitely will very soon. I'm happy you were impressed, I Went to the High school right next to the law school, and was always intrigued by the law school, even though I never went.

yeah CUNY law is #1 at placing grads in public interest which is good. Their tuition is only $8,500 which is great when you thinking about public interest. I guess ROMA is right, I might have answered my question. However, I will take any other opinions into concideration.

Where should I go next fall? / Public Interest- CUNY or NYLS
« on: April 14, 2008, 05:15:40 PM »
So I am interested in public interest and I am debating between New York Law School or CUNY law. Which school do you guys think will be better? also, NYLS tuition is $45,000 meaning I will most likely graduare with a $150,00+ debt. Is this a smart move for someone who is planning to go into the public interest and most likely not start with a high salary?

how about going to a school like CUNY law which is a state school as oppose to an average school like New York Law school for a govermental job in NYC?
