Personal Reasons for Choosing NYU/CLS?
« on: January 25, 2007, 01:55:24 PM »
I know there are a lot of threads debating the difference between the two (if anyone wants to post some - I will add to the top) and I don't know how much can really be gleaned from them as it seems to be such a personal decision.

With that in mind, would any current students or decided pre-laws be willing to share the reason they chose one over the other? I'd really be particularly interested in anything beyond the typical location / campus versus city responses.

Also, how much $$ would it take to sway you to choose the other?

Thanks in Advance!

Your Pal,

Monkey

Looking forward to it, Demingh!

Too specific to be the topic, but if anyone feels like helping me on my personal issues (pre-visit)?

  • I am definitely quite left leaning politically, though I am very fond of purely ecomomic/market solutions whenever possible
  • I currently live in the Village, and my wife refuses to move to the UWS at least for a year, and possibly never (she has that power, since she will largely be supporting me during the next 3 years)
  • I am interested in BigLaw, leaning toward IP (non-patent), but this may change with exposure (currently none)
  • I have always been collegial (sharing my papers / editing others) in UG, and am worried about the rumored cutthroat atmosphere at CLS
  • I'll have been out of school 4 years when 1L starts - if that is even relevant
  • I may want to practice in either London or Boston (instead/after NYC)

Anyone out there commute to CLS via A-train to 125th - I did this for the LSAT and it was fast, but I'm interested in any problems etc.

I don't do it THAT frequently, but I suspect you wouldn't have any problems with the A from the village.  No more than the norm for the mta, anyway.

You live in the Village already!?!? Wow, I wish I was that lucky. Assuming you like it there, you know NYU's location does dances around Columbia's. The neighborhood alone would make me pick NYU over Columbia (I wish I was able to have this decision).

I love NYU. I'm rather left leaning, love that it seems to have a really collegial atmosphere. But most importantly of all, it has a joint degree program with the French Studies department and I am a total francophile who'd kill to be able to do both.
