I know I'm a big young to be on this site, heck I haven't even begun undergraduate yet, but I just have a question and I dont know where else to turn. I don't usually put my faith on a forum but people on this site seem very informative and intelligent so I thought I'd take a chance. Ok so here's the situation:
I dont have the best grades because of a rocky fresh and soph year but I got accepted into a few schools. I've limited my list to
CUNY City college Honors college
New York University
Binghamton (very unlikely)
The top three choices are the most likely schools I would be attending. I would like to go to a good law school and I was wondering whether or not an undergraduate school say such as city college would hinder my chances. The reason I would like to go there though is because it'll give me a full ride plus money and other incentives such as a laptop. All my friends tell me not to jeopardize my education by going there, but I keep thinking that it isn't like I'm turning down HYPS.
So would a law school look down on me if I went to city college even if it is a honors program which is selective, or should I opt to take out loans from say Vassar or NYU? I'm wondering if a top law school would automatically reject my application just because of the undergraduate school I went to. I'm determined to work very hard in college but it would be depressing if my best would not be good enough because of the school I go to.
Sorry if this post is long but could someone please help me out of this dire situation?
