I work as an Engineer for a large international technology company that is keeping me on as a consultant for insurance reasons etc while in school and I pretty much have a job when I finish, although nothing is guaranteed in life.
I don't have any other options as far as the schools, only what I listed, I am just looking for some overall external advice on the different schools. I am located on Long Island now, very close to Hofstra, so that would be extremely easy and would not have expense of rent. I am waitlisted there now however, how does Hofstra compare to Pace and Seton Hall. I've pretty much ruled out Touro because of peoples perception even though they just built a new nice law center, and Syracuse for being entirely to far away, and NYLaw for being expensive and no real advantage over my other options.
So basically down to Seton Hall, which is a high ranked school as far as I see and they have a strong IP program, with a big concentration of classes in IP, but going in school in Newark isn't really appealing. And being only 5-10miles from the tunnel, I can't believe only can get jobs in NJ. Pace is in a nice area in White Plains, but is it a huge step down from Seton Hall? And if Hofstra was to work out, how does that compare with both of the previous universities?
I know none of the above schools are as good as schools like Duke, doesn't help me pick between whats avalaible. Please keep replies on topic, trying to relocate myself and choose school that will position me best for near and distant future in IP,
