Sorry Prong, I should have specified. I meant a "good" job - one that pays money.

All three are bull ... if you don't get into a first-tier school, you better find something else to do than study law ...

So, lwr, do you think marketster was being sarcastic? Or do you believe she was serious?

This is correct - top 40% at a T2 is simply unemployable.

Newbie,

Don't listen to some of the crazy posters on this thread. They have nothing better to do then screw around on the law school board (guess you can tell what kind of social life they have). If I were you, I would choose Hofstra. NY is a very competitive legal market place-- ls rankings count. BTW, most lawyers have not gone to T1 law schools and have done very well for themselves. It is simply ridiculous to believe that you would find a good job if you attend one of the 164 (non-T1). If that were true, 164 law schools would cease to exist. Go with Hofstra, you'll be fine.

I'm looking for some input from anyone familiar with these schools in New York (Hofstra, Pace, NY Law). I need to make a decision very soon and I am so confused.  I think Hofstra is ranked higher but NY Law seems to have a much higher average median salary after school.  Help please.

this post does not relate to transfers ... can't get it why it appears on this section

Maybe I'm hallucinating, but don't you think there is a discrepancy between these two tables?!

No, gd, you're not hallucinating, there is something wrong there. But then, what else can you expect from New York Law School? :)
