I must decide by tomorrow. PLEASE HELP! (Cardozo tuition is like 39K so that would mean around 75K in debt)

What kind of law are you looking to get into?

I'd go with Hofstra to save the money.

I'd go to Cardozo for full price over Hofstra for free.

Increased cost of living is not an issue since where I live now is commutable to both schools. I'm not sure what kind of law I want to go into yet (am I the only one?) so I want to go to a school that will leave me with a reasonable amount of options.

Cardozo will leave you with more options...it is worth the $ to go there over Hofstra

I'd take Cardozo full price over Hofstra free ride even if the Cardozo option meant getting pounded in the ass with a stick weekly. Pardon the colorful language maybe had a few beers too many today.

I think the two factors that could sway you toward Hofstra would be
a) if you know you want to practice on Strong Island.
b) if you know want to go into public interest work with the low salary and need to minimize debt.
