Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Brooklyn vs. Rutgers Newark
« Last post by cinnamon synonym on Today at 10:55:00 AM »
Hi! I've been googling different variations of my question, but all of the discussion threads seem to be from 2007 and I want information that is more current. I'm trying to decide between going to Brooklyn or Rutgers Newark. I have a $15,000 scholarship to Brooklyn (need to stay in top 80%) and a $10,000 scholarship to Rutgers (need to maintain 2.67 cum.) So, that would put Brooklyn at about $30,000 a year and Rutgers at about $16,000, so about half the price. I've visited Brooklyn but I have not had the chance to visit Rutgers. I really liked Brooklyn when I visited. They had a welcoming environment, it was in a nice area, and it seemed like there is a great alumni network/job prospects (although, what admissions counselor ISN'T going to tell you those things about their school).

I'm not really interested in BigLaw. I'd like a job in public interest or government work, specifically dealing with women's rights/women's issues (maybe sexual violence, domestic violence, etc.) I also love NYC and would be really interested in working there. So, my question is does either school have an upper-hand in helping me reach these specific career goals? Is Brooklyn worth paying almost double the money if I want to work in NYC? I'm really conflicted and don't know what to do.

Brooklyn law school is going to be a better choice regarding opportunity, particularly in the area of women's rights.  You are going to have more connections and advantages in the Brooklyn location--

Remember location location location.
Plus diversity of Brooklyn is are going to have downtown Brooklyn and the legal apparatus of NYC at your doorstep.

And you will make connections faster in bls and not have to spend time in transitions...

Plant your corn close to home and in verdant pastures.

Why take many steps going to Rutgers when you will have to take many to get out of there..

Also! As far as living everyday in a stimulating environment--Rutgers is a slow drag.  Visit the area--buy a car--you are going to want to escape occasionally.

Good luck.

I'd choose bls.

For the 100 or so people who read this thread everyday or so.....

What Hillary Clinton supporters don't seem to understand and what many of us Bernie sanders supporters absolutely grasp is an honest reality.

A politician may be able to lie to the average voter without repercussions however lying to the cops ALWAYS carries SERIOUS consequences.

Many examples exist where a pathological liar gets themselves caught---
One pathological liar named Martha Stewart could help herself either.

Hillary Clinton supporters--I know you are dying a little inside every day because some of you are not duped....and know she is not going to make it.

Bernie does not need to even mention hillarys damn emails---we all know now the FBI means business---

Toughy tough lawyer Cheryl Mills had to run out of the room crying when the FBI questioning began..

Bernie fans....lets butter some more popcorn!!!!!!

Mrs. Hillary may take her past political posts for granted but im sure the average american, myself don't. And i bet the FBI doesn't.

Memorial day weekend....hmmmm???

What day this weekend would be good for an interrogation?  I mean what day would be good for a review.

Just a though.........

Oh, to be the ones who actually get to ask Hillary some questions.

Hillary Clinton's OWN state department inspector general just ratted her out with regard to her mishandling of government information....hackers? Oh,my yes.

It does not look good for her political career at this point.

--Very interested to see  how the the FBI view her actions.

This election season is getting more interesting week by week.

To think it all started with a cable requesting "help" "assistance" " security"---that never received ANY attention and was left to neglect.

The American people need their president to OPEN and READ all of his cables.  To not say aloud that "you take action"...
We need our president to simply "take it".  And for gods sake we need our president to seriously understand and protect national secrets.

Mrs. Hillary may take her past political posts for granted but I bet the FBI doesn't.

I love how easy it is to trick stupid people into doing what you want them to do.
Point out that a guy hates illegal immigration, point to that being mostly Mexicans, and then convince virtually all Multi Generational American Born, not even from Mexico Hispanics to be opposed to him, as if its Puerto Ricans interest to keep Mexicans in here illegally..........genius.

1. cool name

2. Stop. There are unhappy people in all professions with those issues. Its like when people cry about student loans as an excuse to stay in $10 an hour dead end jobs to avoid the "debt" of college. If you don't have the sack for it, stay out.

Who said it was a wonderful job?

Seriously though, depends on what you do. I know some who are miserable and others who are happy. Most are either miserable or happy depending on what day it is. Just lost an MSJ and the boss is pissed? Unhappy. Just won an acquittal after months of hard work? Very pleased. It's all relative.

If being an Attorney is such a wonderful job, why does it have such a high rate of suicide, depression and alcoholism.  :'(

Sorry I couldn't respond with more explanation as it was a busy day--"viking privilege"--that was funny.

But, maintain, when i read vague outdated terms which also have nebulous definitions like the word "minorities" I have to think there is serious prejudice, presuppositions, or tacit bigotry.

I dont think you mean what your writing expresses. Demographics are tricky to discuss without offending individuals.  One example- Latinos cannot be lumped into one political voting block because depending on MANY factors they vote all across the political spectrum.

To brush swaths of people off as minorities sounds disingenuous and somewhat demeaning.

Do you see?

Btw....have you seen some of the new polls out where Mr. Drumpf is ahead of Hillary on the national level?....maintain? If Hillary Clinton is the favored candidate to soooooo many people and the optimum choice for president how is it that she is NOT way a head of Drumpf?????

If he is so despised among women...etc then how is he now even close to her in the polls?
Please explain that one?

And bernie is clearly beating Drumpf in national polls???

Please explain your thoughts on that one? If you can?

If you believe there are "minorities" than you have to acknowledge all minorities like Icelandic Americans

Icelandic Americans benefit from Viking Privilege. You're so racist.

Lol. Still a minority, sorry.
