Sorry if I sound ignorant (I;m starting 1L in the fall) but what is LEEWS, Gilbert's & Emmanuel's?

General Board / Re: Family Law

Where do you work if you do family law? Is it possible to work in a firm? And is the salary really as low as they say?

General Board / Hofstra or NYLS for NYC law?
« on: June 21, 2005, 02:58:44 PM »
I like NYLS's location but am wondering which is best for working in NYC after school. Preferably in a firm.  I know it will be hard to work in a big firm coming from either school.

Don't take this as being rude but- what is so great about the proximity to the courts?  And St. John's is a Tier 2. I would think its much better than NYLS.

But do you suggest that I take the LSAT a 3rd time? How much higher can I really get? Even if I get a 160, my 3 averaged scored will only be 155. I want to practice Real Estate law after school? Do you think I would have a good chance doing this in NYC graduating from NYLS?

Hi. I have been admitted to NYLS but don't know if I should go.  I graduated in 2004 and have been working at a Big 4 Accounting firm. I hate my job. I know that a Bachelor's degree is nothing anymore so I definitely want to continue my studies. I know I want to go to law school but I need help in deciding if NYLS is the one, as I haven't been accepted anywhere else.  I am waitlisted at St. John's and would LOVE to go there but I think that getting in off the waitlist is a lost cause.  I know that NYLS is 3rd tier so I need to know if taking on so much debt is even worth it. I keep hearing that NYLS has bad job prospects and that I will have to be in the top 10% to get a good job.  I just don't want to go to law school and get a job where my starting salary is $60,000 a year.  With the loans I'll have, I won't be able to live on that.  Also, I took the LSAT twice already 151/155 and I don't think I'll be taking it again. So should I re-apply next year? I'm so upset b/c I thought that I had my life planned out and then I didn't get in anywhere! I have no idea what to do with my life now. UGHH

Hey Flecktone - Can you tell me where the students landed jobs? At firms or gov't jobs? Thanks.

Thanks for the response JD.  I'm a somewhat nervous person as it is.  I'm just getting really worried. What if I can't handle the pressure? What if I can't do the work?  But I'm also afraid that if I don't go, I'll always regret it.  I have talked to students and reading these boards can be depressing at times. Everyone says the same thing, be sure I REALLY want to go.
