Would commuting to Hempstead from Brooklyn be feasible? Any input would be appreciated.
I was left to decide between some money from Broolyn and lots of money from St. John's and Hofstra. I asked the opinion of every English-Speaking person I knew. While no, my mail man wasn't qualified to advise me on this subject, I wanted to hear from everyone. The people who knew about law and law school said what's already been said over and over- "there is not a big enough difference between those school to pass up a free ride." The people who knew nothing about these schools or the process etc. said "take the money." After eliminating Brooklyn I chose between the other two schools based on important-to-me but admittedly ridiculous "soft" factors. Which reception did I feel the most comfortable at? Which bathroom was the cleanest? Which group of admitted students seemed the least anal? Long story short, pick a school you wont be miserable in for three years.
Thanks guys, I appreciate the input. I'd need to maintain a 3.25 GPA to keep the scholarship after 1L and though I'm fairly confident, I'd like to be realistic. If I assume the worst and it only ends up being $20K total, does this change things? It really seems like the clinical programs at BLS will open more doors to areas that I'm interested in.
