is it worth it to even apply, let alone attend?anybody know NYLS salary stats?...i am getting nervous that no one else will take me2.8/161...prob gonna do PT apps at all NY schools except for SJU/NYLSadvice?
I am not trying to prove anything here (I couldn't care less), but I know a girl who graduated last year, spent half a yr doing nothing, and then got a $80K job at one of the accounting firms doing tax law. She was proud of passing the bar on her first try (which is quite an accomplishment for NYLS, I hear). HTH.
My friend's sister went there, placed well, and is now doing the ever-so-desired "BIGLAW" for 125K+ a year. Law school, like college, and everything else in life, is what you make of it. To me, NYLS is absurdly overpriced. I think it is 38K+ a year. I think you can get into SJU, Brooklyn, Cardozo, maybe not full time but nearly certainly part time at at least one, same for Jersey schools. Maybe try Hofstra for FT. I think any of those have a better reputation than NYLS, are more affordable and more generous with scholarship $$, and will get you a better job and prepare you better for the bar.
thanks steve.jd <3the only reason i asked is bc i recently went to my UG instituion's 'pre-professional advisor' and she gave me all the stats on law school applicants from my school last year. reading these boards pretty religiously, i had an idea of what NYLS was like. seeing as my UG is elite liberal arts, i was surprised to see that 4 students from my UG actually matriculated there.
She had no connections. I'm not a big fan of NYLS, but I think it's possible to succeed even at a T3, but the OP is definetly good numerically for many T2s.
