Widener (delaware campus) vs. New England Law school
« on: May 02, 2009, 04:06:52 PM »
Hello,

I am divided between Widener Law in DE and New ENgland Law School.

Hoping to practice in NYC after graduation.

Looking for some advice or experience with the two. Thanks in advance.

I have no answer, but I am hoping to see others because I am wondering the same thing.  I am considering applying to both of those schools and want to work in NYC also.

I doubt either school will give you a good chance of getting to NYC, schools like Widener and NELS really only place lawyers regionally. I'm from DE and looked into Widener when I began considering law school, from what I remember they didn't have a single NYC law firm on their OCI list. Your best bet is to find a NYC school and go there if you're sure you want to go there; New York Law School, Albany, etc. If you've read the forums you've probably read it a million times already, but if you're going to a Tier 3/4 school make sure you know what you're getting yourself into, a lot of students from those schools wind up with a lot of debt and no job prospects.
