Sorry!!! Am back!
So here's how it shakes out now. Cardozo is off the table as I have just heard back from BLS, and what I'm looking at now is:
Brooklyn 29,900 annually
St. John's 35k annually.
Am a single mom in Brooklyn -- my support system is here and not portable, so no desire or plans to move. Will practice here, am not interested in big law. Am about 80% sure that I will seek out public sector work. Oh. and I don't drive, so the commute to St. John's is a beast.
Thanks all, and sorry!
