quick turn around with rutgers. were you surprised by that? was there anything extremely distinguished about your application there? thanks and congrats again.
Would invite you to strongly look at University at Buffalo Law School. It is MUCH HIGHER rated than: Albany, New York Law, Hofstra, and Penn State. I am a first year student at University at Buffalo and the place is amazing !
thanks for the congrats. I'm definitely holding my breath on fordham. and penn state is definitely being overly slow with me. sad cuz i definitely liked it.
Actually got the scholarship offer first, then the acceptance letter several days later.
Congrats on Seton Hall. I still haven't heard. Got a call from Hofsta, also. Nice. Serious $ from them as well. Trying to decide between Hofstra, New York Law, and Rutgers. Any ideas?
Please let me know what you think when you visit. Still haven't heard from Seton Hall. Am a little concerned about Newark being a safe place to go to school and walk around, especially since I've been known to study so late in the library till they throw me out when they close. I'll be very interested in your impressions.
Enjoy your visit. I hear that the Seton Hall Law building is amazing and is closer to the train to NYC than Rutgers. But Rutgers has a better national reputation and may do better for jobs in NYC , if that's your goal. I'm probably not telling you anythng you don't already know. Thanks for the link to those law school rankings. Makes sense. I applied to Seton Hall very late in the cycle, so I may not get in, but I'll wait to hear your reviews of all the schools. Have fun!
Well, that's news about being able to take advantage of in-state tuition at Rutgers! Kind of makes up for them not giving us any $. Does that mean you would take Rutgers over Seton Hall, if you decide to go school in NJ? Can't wait to hear what you think of the NY schools. I'll wait for your next report.
Great reporting! Your impressions confirm what I thought. I considered applying part-time at Fordham and other places, but was concerned about making up credits in the summer. Do you think the job prospects in NYC are about the same for Hofstra and NYLS? Again, thanks for giving me your reviews!
Your insights are great. I'll keep you posted. I'm visiting the schools in NY and New Jersey the first weekend in April. Both Hofstra and NYLS have open houses for admitted students then, so I'll be able to check out the incoming class. Although I'm partial to living in NY, your good impression of Rutgers makes me want to take a close look. Good luck with your decision. I'll be interested to see where you end up.
So you visited and?? How'd you like it?!
looks like we both we accepted to NYLS. have they by any chance sent out your financial aid letter yet?
I had thought about applying to Rutgers - Newark but ultimately decided against it because it doesn't have much of an intellectual property concentration.
and good luck with the rest of your cycle
Hey, thanks for all the info! If I decided to actually go through with law school, I think I'm aiming at NY or LA. So far, I've only gotten into 1 outside of each city. Still waiting! Good luck with the rest of your cycle.
Still waiting to hear from some schools. Following in your footsteps, I finally heard from Seton Hall with the same $ offer. In about two weeks I'm visiting the schools in New York and New Jersey. Then I'll have to decide. Did you send in your seat deposit to Rutgers? I'm looking forward to visiting there.
I just checked out the new rankings that were leaked. Interesting - Hofstra is now 2nd tier, and Rutgers-Newark is tied with Rutgers-Camden instead of being ranked lower. I'm going to admitted students day at Hofstra where I'm sure everyone will have happy faces. I agree with your assessment of Rutgers still having the edge with Big Law in NYC.
Congrats on your Rutgers decision. I've heard great things about the school. It must be nice to have made a choice! I need to decide really soon. Wish me luck!
Thanks... I am actually originally from NJ and live there now, post-college (I commute to NYC) I'm still considering Rutgers-N for many of the reasons you mentioned; however, I really liked MD, so if I ever get off their WL I think I will go there. Best of luck at R-N!
Sorry, forgot to put my name on that last post.
Hi I saw you comment on another persons wall about the difference between Hofstra and NYLS. I was wondering about that as well and was curious as to what your thoughts are? Congratulations on your acceptances and scholarships!
Hey I am going to Rutgers Camden in the fall and was wondering if you knew what I need to do to get in state tuition...I hear that it is similar to what you need for Newark any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, thanks for the comment. Am I correct that Rutgers will grant in state tuition if one moves to NJ prior to the academic year? I really see Rutgers as the place for me, even though they haven't accepted me yet. One of my LORs was written by an alum, and he has nothing but excellent things to say about the school. How do you like Newark?
I applied to Carlisle, and Im not really sure why I did. I think id probably rather stay at the University Park... there is a on-line chat tomorrow I figured I'd ask then. I went complete at Hofstra in mind December, they called me today too, it was pretty cool
