Touro and Hofstra
« on: May 25, 2006, 08:15:54 PM »
Is it worth transferring from Touro to Hofstra? Touro is a tier 4, but is moving out to Central Islip to be near the federal court complex (granted there are a ton of pros and cons about this).  Hofstra is now a tier three, bordering on the edge of tier 2.  Touro is moving out further to Long Island, which could be good and could be bad.  Hofstra is stable in Hempstead and has been around a little bit longer.  Is Hofstra's reputation that much better?

Any help would be appreciated.  My application is due this week.

What are the cons about being near the Federal Court house?  It's also going to be near a Supreme Court house, Family Court house, and District Court house- they're all in one complex- what more could you need? and what would the cons be?
