Seton Hall PT v. SLU PT

Seton Hall PT v. SLU PT
« on: June 16, 2008, 02:02:36 PM »
I just got a call from SLU to notify me that I got off their waitlist.  But, they are putting me in what they called Accelerated Part-Time Program.  I'll be in PT for a year, take 1 summer course, then put into FT for 2nd and 3rd year.

Seton Hall is ranking much higher than SLU.  Seton Hall's ranking's been going up, while SLU fell this year.  Both are good at Health Law.  I have borderline interest in that field.  My first choice is to work in-house somewhere in Corporate, Tax, M&A, or Contract law.

I imagine the choice would probably come down to where I wanna work after I graduate.  But, just wanted to hear other people's thoughts about it before making any decision.  (FYI, I already paid 2 deposits at Seton Hall).

Would you rather work in STL or NYC? That's about what your decision comes down to. Either school will serve you fine, but both are pretty regional.

I am also contemplating transferring to another school after first year.  Do any of you guys know about transferring to another school from PT program? I know Georgetown accepts both FT and PT transfers, but it'll be a long shot.  I think most schools require you to complete first-year curriculum before applying for transfer... Being in SLU accelerated program will make sure I finish first-year curriculum after summer session.  I am not so sure about SHU.  Anybody know?

Between St. Louis and NYC/NJ, I prefer NYC/NJ.
