JCDenton is only telling you the truth. NYLS is the 3rd most expensive law school in the country. Its NOT worth it. You're already qualifying for a Perkins loan and then you pick this expensive waste? The curve at NYLS is a B-, 50% must get above and 50% must get below. Which means not only do you not have a great law school name on your resume, you'll probably have a pretty sh*tty GPA and class rank to match.
Then when you do graduate, you'll be UNEMPLOYED!! Those statistics they show for students with 'full-time employment' aren't really what they seem. NYLS will count waitressing full-time in those statistics.
But since your mind is already made up, go ahead. With a grading curve like that, those 5 people in your class of 300 who make BigLaw will need all the help they can get in maintaining their own rankings.
