Is Seton Hall worth it--for me?
« on: March 24, 2009, 02:57:27 PM »
So, I got accepted to Seton Hall's Part-time/Evening program with a $10,000 dollar scholarship. I am interested in their joint JD/MDIR in Diplomacy and International Affairs. I want to study social justice or international law and perhaps go into law enforcement--my dream job being an FBI Agent; something more realistic would be to work in the New Jersey DOJ.

With my scholarship, I would be paying around $18,500 per year (excluding cost of living). I would be able to work since I would be part-time, plus I would get two degrees out of it. I'm still waiting to hear back from the following schools: William & Mary; University of Wisconsin-Madison; UNLV; University of Oregon; University of New Mexico; Penn State University.

So, what do you think? I just read a thread on top-100-law-schools.com from a 2005 Seton Hall grad who was shitting on the school and job market, so I'm looking for advise from other grads as well.

Cheers!

If you go over to JDUnderground, it's full of bitter Seton Hall grads who can't get jobs. The problem is SH is low on the totem pole in a grossly overcrowded legal market: NYC. However, if you're not looking to make 100k/yr, you're better off than many of them. and you could minimize debt by working, SH might be a good choice for you.
