I currently attend Hofstra and am going into my third year. I have enjoyed my time there, and would not have made a different choice. I have had many wonderful professors, and have a great summer associate job. Is my experience different than many Hofstra law school students? Perhaps. I am fortunate enough to have had decent grades and be on Law Review. Most of my classmates are doing just fine, even though they're not in a large law firm. Quoting my cousin, who is a major partner at a major law firm, "Outside of the top tier, it doesn't matter where you go to law school - just kick ass no matter where you're at."
As far as the GPA for maintaining a scholarship, it is now a 3.25. When I got my scholarship, it was a 3.0. But with the new forced curve being roughly a 3.1, it's not too bad to maintain.
