On the same note see what Touro's schedule is, go into Touro's career service office and see what is going on with them. The real thing to consider is that very few students at non T-14 schools get employment through OCI anyway. Even if there are actually 80 employers coming to Brooklyn for OCI, I find it unlikely that all 80 firms actually hire someone through OCI. A firm coming in for interviews often is nothing more than professional courtesy, and some firms have no intention of hiring anyone, but they show up as a favor to the school.
Touro's expensive tuition and abysmal job prospects make it a school that all applicants should avoid. Even if one is lucky enough to be one of the few that receives a full ride, attending another school will undoubtedly be better for one's career prospects.
Things like that are generally written by people that never took the LSAT yet alone spent one day in a law school classroom. Always question the source of the information and remember those who know the least know it the loudest. I don't think anyone is arguing Touro is some great school. In the New York area I think Touro is the least respected school, but honestly if an employer was going to look at a resume from St. John's, Pace, Seton Hall, etc I don' tsee why they would see why they wouldn't look at a resume from Touro. As I understand it in New York the local rank of schools is 1. NYU2. Columbia3. Fordham 4. Cardozo 5. Brooklyn 6. St. Johns. 7. Rutgers 8. Hofstra9. NYLS10. CUNY 11. Pace 12 . TouroI am probably missing a few schools, but as you can see New York is not not lacking law schools not to mention people from Harvard, Yale, Cornell, UCLA, Berkeley, Georgetown, etc want to move to New York. Some employers will only look at TOP SCHOOLS. Brooklyn is not a TOP SCHOOL. If It is probably 5th I might be wrong on that list, but realistically if a firm is going to look at a resume from Brooklyn, or NYLS I don't see why they wouldn't look at Touro. Again, I could be wrong, I just don't see Brooklyn opening enough doors to be worth 100,000 more in tuition/living expenses. Especially if you do not want to work in Big Law. Honestly, it is a difficult choice, but don't take quotes like that seriously. Honestly, talk to 3L's at Touro or recent grads, e-mail firms in the area, tell them what is on your mind. I truthfully don't know much more than the person that posted the quote. I am a second year law student in San Francisco, who certainly doesn't have the answers. The only people you should really give any consideration to are graduates from Touro and Brooklyn, because they can give you REAL answers. Not speculation and bold statements. Random internet sites like this or top law schools are not what you should base a life altering decision on. Nobody that has posted really knows anything about Touro or Brooklyn law school includign myself. I walked by Brooklyn Law School a few times and the outside did not impress me, but that is me a random guy on the internet subjective view regarding the school's aesthetics and it might be an AWESOME school. The only people that really know whats up are current Brooklyn students and people that do hiring in the New York area.
