Choosing the Right Law School / Brooklyn vs. Rutgers Newark
« Last post by Ranjit on Today at 01:28:09 AM »

Friendship day was originally founded   Friendship Day Images
by Hallmark in 1919. It was intended to be a day for people to celebrate their friendship by sending eachother cards, but by 1940 the market had dried up, and eventually it died out Happy new year
 completely. However, in 1998 Winnie the Pooh was named the Happy Birthday Messages for Friends
  world’s Ambassador of Friendship at the   United Nations (believe it or not!), and in April 2011 the United Nations officially recognised 30th July as International Friendship Day;  Merry christmas
although most countries celebrate on the first Sunday of August!

He's voting for his opponent. Who cares whether he's suspended his already dead campaign. This is a great example of why the left never really gets anywhere.

There is no revolution. Never was. Just total capitulation.


Lol, maintain you are a "nose holding" rookie.

You should go read a little about Nixon and the FBI....

Wake up!!!!

Maintain,
You seem to be a nice person but you admit you had to compromise your principles.  Politics can be very complex and you have to realize that a great deal if the electorate dont care about the Dem Rep parties.
Many folks like me dont give a shite about party unity--that is for dupes.

We are independent and what you call spoiler we call a vote of principle, understand now?

So, whether it is Jill or Bernie we dont care.  Clinton is a non starter and Trump is a non starter.

Your support of Clinton will bring us Donald trump because she's been compromised for a long time. 

Bernie is not under criminal investigation.
Truth hurts dont it.

Here you go, Cinnamon.

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/bernie-sanders-says-he-will-vote-hillary-clinton-n598251

Sanders says he will vote for Clinton. Think about that for a minute. The guy you will write-in will not vote for himself, because he has the intellectual maturity to understand that defeating Trump is more important. What does that say about you?

I think it says that either you picked the wrong guy in the first place because he's a sellout (unlikely), or that your diehard position is sort of childish (likely).

I just think you are trying too hard, maintain....

Let me explain this one more time for you.

Has sanders said he is going to "suspend" his campaign?

And it is irrelevant because many of us WILL be voting for him in November as a write in candidate-- that has been baked in the cake for a long time.

 FBI have an investigation going on which will change the election drastically--

Not a hint of campaign suspension and an open investigation.  Keep trying though.😉

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Charlotte School of Law vs. CUNY
« Last post by Maintain FL 350 on June 24, 2016, 03:50:53 PM »
You need to think about where you want to live post grad. These are both local schools with local reputations, and you will almost certainly end up working in the immediate area.

Personally, I'd go with the cheapest option. NYC is a very competitive legal market with a very high COL. You will have lots of debt and be stuck competing for the lower end of the legal pay scale.

I don't know the NC market at all, but the COL is definitely cheaper.

Frankly, neither school is a powerhouse and you will be seriously hustling to find work. Thus, limiting cost should be a major goal.

As far as CUNY being #1 in public interest, nobody cares. I don't mean that to sound like a jerk, but seriously nobody cares. CUNY could be #1 and NYU could be #200, and the NYU grad will still get the interview. These kinds of subcategory rankings are (with a few exceptions) practically meaningless. For example, St. Louis University is ranked high in Health Care Law. Go to any big firm that represents hospitals and insurers and see if they hire St. Louis grads over Harvard and Yale grads as a result.

Choosing the Right Law School / Charlotte School of Law vs. CUNY
« Last post by sweetscientist on June 24, 2016, 02:24:30 PM »
Got offered a full ride at Charlotte.  Love the atmosphere there-- just enough city hustle, but still a lot of Southern charm.

No full ride at CUNY, but they're tuition is very low.  $23K for out of state and $14K for in-state, which I would qualify for after the first year.

I love the idea of NY (coming from DC) but am not sure if it's just all cooked up in my head.  Headed to visit this weekend.  My thought is that networking and job opportunities are better in NY, but I also believe that law school and life in general is what you make it.

Am I just having a really bad case of FOMO?  I should go to Charlotte but... I feel like I'd be missing out on NY.

Also I should add that the end goal for me is to practice public interest law for 5-7 years and start my own nonprofit providing athlete advocacy, particularly in sports where athletes are subject to repetitive head trauma.  Going to a top ranked school has never been my goal.  I want to get my law degree, build my network, and branch off on my own.

Can someone elaborate on "Is CUNY as bad as people make it out to be?"

I've been accepted there and am considering it.  The admissions process I do have to admit has been a bit lackluster.  Slow, curt email responses if any.  But I want to go into public interest and they keep bragging about being the #1 public interest law program in the country?  Thoughts?

And to the OP.. I'm in the same boat, so not the best person to provide advice, but my take is-- the less debt, the more job freedom later.
