I got the decision through the mail. One envelope had the acceptance letter and scholarship info. I also got a large envelope on the same day that contained the t-shirt and info packet.

Hofstra is in Uniondale.

How did they notify you of your acceptance?? Email, Mail?

Hofstra and St. John's seem to have a much greater level of respect in the new york legal market and they are much cheaper.

Of course, you do! I took a look for you at the ABA-LSAC book that lists all the school's stats and etc. The median LSAT is 153 and the median GPA is 3.20. I would be very suprised if you didn't get in, assumning you have good recs/ good record and etc.

I have a friend at NYLS - the location is nice - but he is getting into a lot of debt and the job prospects aren't great. it is a stand-alone institution which means that they don't have great networking. however, they have an internal career fair which helps. however, the school is notorious for people not being able to get high-paying jobs in the area...and my friend also tells me that a lot of students drop out.

St. John's is the best prospect of all of those schools if you are going to be mediocre and try to get a job. But i do have friends at hofstra, who are doing all right...but they are on a journal with very high grades. the point: if you get into all those schools, go to St. John's and you have the best shot. If you go to any of the other one's you really need to stand out to get anywhere fast.

hope that helped
