P.S. Counterstrike - a word of advice.

Instead of putting your two cents that could be helpful and add to the thread, why don't you stop using such accusatory words such as closed-minded, arrogant, etc.?

You could have just wrote a benign comment such as..

What about the scenario such as? 

etc.

I don't find it necessary to have every type of scenario/grade combination.

This was based on Bubbazz's comment saying that Syracuse is more national, etc.

sure..I could have put down a third scenario

3 - B/B+ Albany Student vs. A/A- Syracuse Student

Happy?   ;D

Please if anyone chooses to respond...greatly appreciated if you could answer all scenarios.

Hi Bubbazz,

Interesting you say that.  But it is not impossible to find a job outside of these areas if you go to Albany.  If you did well in Albany, don't you think you would be able to find a decent job elsewhere?

Or do you think it is more like this:

Hypotheticals :
Job Location: Outside their comfort areas

Who do you think will get more recognition, job prospects?

1 - A/A- Albany Student vs. B/B+ Syracuse Student.
2 - A/A- Albany Student vs. A/A- Syracuse Student

Thoughts?  Let's say both did not make law review.

Thanks everyone for their responses. ;)

I was wondering this because I want to know what I should expect when I have to apply for summer internships and job prospects that may be outside the school's region.

I didn't know if this really mattered.  ???

Thnx.

Hi Everyone.

Just wondering everyone's thoughts about the big difference if there is one between going to a school at the bottom of the 2nd Tier vs a 3rd Tier school.

I don't see a big difference.

Thanks!

 :P

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Hofstra vs Pace vs NYLaw

I would say to you...can you list your objectives of what you want to get out of law school and what you want to specialize in?

I think that would help people give you substantial advice instead of general advice...

The 2 schools I am flirting with is Loyola NO and Syracuse.  I can't decide.  Can anyone give me any suggestions? 

This is what I know:

I don't know where I want to practice - originally from NYC. I haven't visited Syracuse yet and thus I don't know that much about it.  I want to find out about the curriculum, etc...Also, regarding the tiers, they are pretty similiar...not enough for me to be concerned.

Syracuse
Pros:                                             
-Local To NYC                                   
-Appears that the law students that attend Syracuse are from better undergrads than Loyola NO (I don't know if this means much).
-Facilities

Cons:
-Weather
-Professors - some good, some bad

 
Loyola NO
Pros:
-Supportive Faculty, Administration, Student Body
-Weather

Cons:
-Local School
-Civil vs. Common Law


If anyone has anything else they would like to add, I would appreciate it.

I just have no idea! ???

Monthly payments of 2500??  That puts things in perspective..since my friend in NYC just rented an apt for 2400?+/month??

Puts things in perspective, I guess.
