Cardozo Vs. Seton Hall
« on: June 08, 2007, 11:06:48 AM »
Until yesterday, I had been planning to go to Rutgers or Seton Hall. I received scholarships from both that will make the tuition about the same. Both require I maintain a specific gpa. Yesterday I was accepted to Cardozo with a big scholarship that has no requirements. Today, Seton Hall told me that I have been invited to apply for a full scholarship and that I have a great chance of getting it because ive already been nominated by "the faculty."

I live in Hoboken and most likely want to practice in NJ. I think I want to do family law.  How do I decide when Cardozo is ranked better than Seton Hall if SH gives me the full ride?

Any thoughts?

But Cardozo is giving you a "big" scholarship?  So will the price difference even be that much?  Have you visited the school?  Sometimes you get an instant vibe from the campus that can help make up your mind.

What GPA do you have to maintain at Seton Hall?  It sounds like the reasonable choice, given your desired location post-graduation.

If you're going to choose based on a scholarship, go with the one that has no strings attached. Make sure you read the terms carefully to confirm in fact there are no strings attached.
