Any advice would be appreciated...down to Temple and Rutgers-Newark. They seem pretty similar in reputation, atmosphere and course offerings to me, and I hope to work in Philly, with the option of maybe NJ or NYC as well.
I really want to move away from the saturated, competitive NYC market. I did apply to both, but with no scholarship to Cardozo, and BLS staying quiet on the subject, it is just so expensive. I don't want to be cornered into having to get a certain type of job just so I can pay back my loans. Philadeplphia is a great city with housing costs that beat NYC by a milestone. I think Rutgers will still give me opportunities in Philly, but a big part of me feels like Temple is the way to go. Even if I have to commute and hour-1.5.
