Night Classes
« on: May 27, 2005, 01:13:22 PM »
I am soon to be 1L at Hofstra in their part-time evening program.  It is a new program and I am curious what fellow night students impressions of it were.  Any experiences would be helpful.

A wide variety of opinions always helps.

i have a few friends in the part-time evening program.  as a general reply i can tell you:

1.  the faculty that teaches at night are some of the best.
2.  generally, more mature students, who are working, so they are a bit more competitive because they take their studies seriously.
3.  generally more people from LI than out-of-state like the day division.
4.  it's a real handicap not having legal writing during your first year (you take it in the summer) because most employers would like to see how you did in that course and a lot of employers want a writing sample. 
5.  all of the studnets who switched from the p/t evening to the full-time program were accepted, there was no screening process..although that may change next year.

hope that helps a bit, but if you have any specific questions, i can always ask my friends and see wwhat they say.

best,

canuck
Headed to Hofstra in August!
