NYC is the number 1 destination for top prospects from every school in T1. Do not ever assume it will be "fairly easy" to get a job in NYC. Please, for the love of god, go to Colorado.If I remember correctly a SJU student recently started a thread "SJU: diploma mill?"Colorado doesn't get a great deal of press on these boards, probably because the people who go there are all laid back and chill, as opposed to us uptight LSDers. Plus colorado just opened a brand new building. And it has an awesomely small student body, you'll get mucho personal attention. And while there may not be a plethora of NYC firms OCIing at UC, you will be able to shop your degree around NY just as well so long as you have decent grades. (VS. needing to be top 10-15% at SJU to get a decent firm job ... and you'd probably have to do the same shopping around.) Also Denver is a growing market and an awesome city. I've heard great things about the growing legal market in Denver. And hey, when a student of mine got sued by the RIAA for downloading songs, the firm suing her was in, you guessed it, Denver!PS did you go to a SUNY?OK, to sum it all up, unless you cannot stand the thought of leaving your fam for a few years, go to UC and have a blast.
I voted for St. Johns's completely out of selfishness. I was waitlisted at CU and really, really, really want to go there. So if I were you, I would go to CU. I visited in December and was blown away, it is absolutely gorgeous! But if you do decide to go to St. John's please withdraw from Boulder asap. Thanks!
Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?
Go west young person!!! (didn't want to mess up gender)I heard Denver is chill, and Colorado will probably give you some doors to the West Coast.
I love when LSD helps someone make the right choice!but really, you should have come to BC... we're much cooler!
