Cardozo feedback...
« on: February 01, 2004, 02:19:01 PM »
I'm considering transferring to Cardozo (if I can get in...).  Does anyone have feedback on the school?  Professors?  Programs?  Students?  Support?  Facilities?

Many thanks!

Hi, there, Cardozo is and has been my dream school for over 15 years.
One of my paralegal professors got both his JD and LLM from there.

He said the professors are approachable and accomodating.  He was a full time professor of business law at Yeshiva University's School of Business while getting his LLM, so he had a lot of things to juggle.  The professors expected him to be prepared of course, but worked with him when schedule conflicts arose etc.

According to him, there is good camaraderie among the 1L's. 
Barry Schenk heads the Innocence Project and Cardozo has a well regarded program in Alternative Dispute Resolution. 

Their LSAT minimums are pretty high and I understand transferring isn't easy, but it's not impossible.

Something that might be a drawback is since it is a part of Yeshiva University, it observes ALL the Jewish holidays (which means a lot of days off in the fall) and the Library is closed every Saturday which can impact on access to materials.

It's a great school and I hope to see you there.

Rachel

I did my undergraduate work at Brandeis which also has off for the Jewish holidays.  In my experience, non-observant students found the days off a convenient source of extra study time.    Also, I can't imagine that Cardozo's lack of library access on Saturday's would be too big a problem, as the weekday hours are very accessible.

Good luck!

I just got accepted as a transfer from Seattle U to Cardozo. I am a littler hesitant only because I have networked Seattle well and would like to be reassured that it will be possible to have good connections in NYC even after missing my 1L there
