Choosing the Right Law School / Opinions on American University?
« on: March 21, 2008, 09:01:15 PM »

You're flushing your life down the toilet if you go to American. If your choice was suicide or attending American, you'd be better off with suicide.

At least, that's the impression you get with how people talk about that school. I'm definitely scared into not attending.

Bluhg. Somehow American's the only school I got into, so I might not even go to law school at all. From what people say, you're better off going to a non-accredited school run by a hobo than American.

This American University school sounds like the worst law school in the country... is it like Cooley? Brooklyn Law is ranked ... what, 60-70 or something? It's the 5th best school in NYC (or, second worst), but from what I hear you'll probably find work. The only person I know who graduated from there went to work at his father's practice.

Didn't David Paterson, the new NYS governor graduate from Hofstra Law?

How is that ridiculous?  I think many could have predicted that.  Is it upsetting?  Sure, sorry to hear it.  But it's not out of this world unexpected.

If Georgetown and GW felt I was worthy enough to be waitlisted for their full-time program, why wouldn't a school like Fordham? Maybe they're just nervous about their dwindling rankings and reputation, and better ranked schools are more confident in considering a wider range of numbers.

I really just wanted to give NYC a last shot. I live here, but I have no problem going to DC for school.

Denied! Ridiculous, and I was at least waitlisted at higher ranked schools. Is it now out of question to request consideration for the Part Time program?

164/3.25, some decent career/soft factors. What bastards.

What's interesting is, they say there's been an increase in applications, but not -unique- applications. It's strange how many schools have extended their deadlines by as much as -2 months-, including big names like Georgetown. If they were confident they had an excess of unique applications, they would by no means have bothered to do that since it probably costs them a lot of money in staff hours to dig through the things.

WCL = Washington College of Law, American's law school.

It's the only school I've gotten into (no rejections, the rest pending). If I don't get into anywhere else (Fordham, Cardozo), it might not be worth it to go anywhere. American's tuition is just too much to justify going.

Numbers: 164, 3.28, 3 years work experience as the managing writer for the headquarters of an international corporation.

They're my first real acceptance so far, and I'm wondering, why on earth is their tuition higher than Georgetown's? That's ridiculous!

I know they're the "public interest" branded school, but how can anyone do that with 180k of debt, and what seems like a mediocre LRAP from American?
