MissP - I am worry. They dont' know what they're missin'!
But, the good news is that you got into two really GREAT schools. I mean, you'll come out of law school being more competitive than we are and not going to CUNY doesn't at all stop you from doing public interest work.
So, think positive - are you going with Cardoza or Brooklyn?
Thanks so much for this! And you're right -- I'm very grateful to be going to law school at all, and I was fortunate to receive scholarships, so I'm not going to be burying myself on too much of that crushing private-school debt. But still, I would have loved to be a part of the CUNY community -- to be in a diverse group of people collaborating for the common good -- and I am sad that I will miss out on that in favor of a more traditional LS experience. Every CUNY grad I know loves CUNY, and I don't know very many other lawyers who can put a nice sentence together about their schools. I'm excited for all of you!
For me, I'm still undecided. Each day, I feel the tug to one or the other. I think the chances are that I will end up at Brooklyn (slightly larger scholarship, personal reasons), but I have really loved all of the Cardozo people I've met, and I think in some ways it is a more interesting, innovative school. We shall see... Tuesday is D-Day!
