Lewis and Clark v Cardozo
« on: June 20, 2008, 03:19:49 AM »
Love both Portland and NYC. Primary concern is cost. While Cardozo is ranked higher and their grads probably go on to better paying jobs, the tuition for L&C is considerable less and the environment is perhaps less competitive. Please give me your advice. It would be great if you can elucidate the pros and cons of both campuses. 

Thank you.

There are some great threads here about L+C and Cardozo.

I think the general consensus on L+C is that it's a great place to go if you want to do Environmental Law, in which case it will be very competitive and still hard to get a job.  If you go for another type of law, you face a very stiff legal market.  It is in Portland, which is beautiful. 

Cardozo is a fine school, but it's uber expensive and so is the COL of NYC. 

Any scholarship info?

Thank you for the response. I turned down Cardozo mainly due to the cost. They did not offer any money, while L&C offered me about half of tuition.
