Jontor:

Make your decision yet? Leaning one way or the other?


Chairman Mathies:
Just got back from Northeastern's Admit day....I'm now 90% sure that I will probably end up there despite the fact that they gave me less money.

Goodluck on your Exams Mathies.

I am currently leaning toward NYLS, but contemplating the following:
NYLS vs. St. Johns
NYLS vs. Rutgers-Newark
NYLS vs. Seton Hall
I am dead set on working in Manhattan and want to work in a large firm... like the rest of the world, of course. Anyways, I am leaning toward NYLS because of location and a large # of people employed in the city, but am also considering St. John's, Seton Hall, and Rutgers-Newark.
What do you all think about NYLS as compared to these schools, in terms of getting a high-paying job in the city. The most important thing to me is that I work in Manhattan. The second most important thing is that my salary is as high as possible. I already know that Rutgers is better than Seton, but are any of these 3 schools better than NYLS in terms of what I'm looking for???
These are the stats that I have (from Martinadale):
# ppl employed in NYC from...
NYLS--2,389, median salary??? i've heard 95 private, i've also heard 75 and 83
St. John's--2,464, median salary 70 for private
Rutgers--958, median salary 101 for private
Seton--531, median salary 81 for private, also heard 74 and 95 (diff. years)

As you can see, no school takes the pack with both # employed and salary. Any comments would be helpful. Thanks!

if you have the option to attend each, i def wouldnt take the lowest ranked school over three very good institutions. I see what you are saying about the location, but I would say that factor would only pertain if you were comparing higher ranked schools in the midwest over a tier 3 in NYC. With each school being less then 45 mins from manhattan, youd have to be crazy to choose NYLS over the rest. I dont know if you have any scholarships for NYLS but that 38k or whatever it is up to now is a little too much debt in my opinion when you could go to rutgers, claim NJ residency with signing a 12 month lease, and pay 17k a year. I know if I were in your positions it would be 1.rutgers, 2. shu, 3. st johns, and ending the list, NYLS
