I am really torn between schools, am still waiting on letters, and am running out of time!!!

Put on "reserve list" for Columbia... pretty sure that is only because my boss from 2001-2007 wrote me a letter of recommendation and is on the board of trustees and they probably don't want to full out reject me. Instead they're slowly peeling the rejection band-aid off prolonging this another month or so. :

Good luck with them, we have .2 difference in a lot of our indexes, and they rejected me 10 days after they got my application. It was quick and painful. Good luck!

Congrats! I'm headed there.. are you still considering going there?

Cool. No, I couldn't make it to ASD b/c I already had a trip planned for early May, and my job is winding down so the time didn't work. Getting a job is a concern of mine, too, but I'm confident that the school will break into the 2nd tier by the time I graduate. New buildings tend to attract better student. There's not much of a rep for the school, but I'm going to try to get involved in some volunteer work that'll help do some good as well as providing connections The main factor for me was location. The buildings, the area in NYC, and the options there. I'm glad to hear that you're interested, it looks like you have an impressive body of work. Logic, foreign languages, real estate.. have you looked at the Innocence Project? They take volunteers from all law schools, I heard... I ask b/c I was wondering what the Bedford Hills Prison Project is.

I chose NYLS because I love the location and they offered me a substantial scholarship. The bar passage rates, and average starting salaries out of school are very comparable with the top 100 schools I was accepted to, so I did not feel like I needed to be a slave to US News and World Report rankings. They treated me very well, ran an excellent open house, and have a brand new building scheduled to open in early 2009. There wasn't much not to like. The timing of everything also played a significant role in my decision. They accepted me in January, had me in for an open house, and gave me more than 3 months to consider them. I really felt like I got to know the school, and I liked almost everything I found out The other two schools I was seriously considering (BLS and SJU) did not accept me until early-mid April, and gave me virtually no time to consider their offers. For me, everything in this application process just seemed to break in the direction of NYL. Good luck to you! I know deciding ain't easy!

I visited both and got good offers from both. There are so many ways to approach this from, but I'll just give you some different types of observations in an email. On the whole, I'd choose NYLS.

NYLS vs. Hofstra
Thursday, January 31 2008 at 07:00 PM

I attended both open houses the same weekend. The NYLS open house was impressive. I made good contacts and liked what I heard about career prospects and plans for the new building. Even though I got more $ from Hofstra and it moved up in the rankings, it's in the middle of nowhere and I wasn't as impressed by the alumni or career prospects. As long as I'm going to be in NY, I prefer to be in Manhattan. I chose NYLS over higher ranked schools I was accepted to and I think it's upwardly mobile. That being said, I'm still looking at some schools where I have a good chance of moving off the waitlist, but if I ended up at NYLS, I would be very happy with the choice.

NYLS/Hofstra

Had one more thought, as if the decision wasn't difficult enough. Without scholarship $, NYLS is very expensive, plus add the cost of living in NYC. NYLS has a dorm, but still pretty expensive and it's in the East Village. Cost of living would be less at Hofstra and you could live in their new residence hall on campus and not have to commute or deal with the distractions and hassle of the city. Just wanted to present a balanced point of view, although, for me I still prefered NYLS. Good luck with your decision.

Did not go to the admitted students day, but I have been in contact with them. I live in NJ, so its a bit of a hike. Indexes is a number that law schools look at to determine where you stand in the list of accepted or denied students. Students with high LSAT and high GPA have a higher index (and that number depends on the school) versus those who have a mediocre LSAT and a so-so GPA like myself ;) Have u decided where you want to go yet? I really hope to get into Suffolk, I'd like to go there. I visited it the other day, in a great part of town..you can see Fenway from there!!

Suffolk
Saturday, February 23 2008 at 07:00 PM

As far as Suffolk goes, it's just in my ideal location. I love Boston, I love the area. I just imagine myself living in that type of atmosphere when I get a little older and settle down. I imagine myself living in those kinds of apartments on the way up, I just see it. If it doesn't work it, it doesn't work out. But that's the way I'm looking at it. I got a few wait listed letters back today, one from Quinnipiac and another from New England School of Law. My prospect of getting into Suffolk looks grim based on those two. The thing I find very odd is that I got rejected from NYLS, but got wait listed at the #99th ranked school in Hofstra. I dunno, I haven't heard great things about Hofstra though. RWU might be my location, I'll have to wait and see. I saw the apartments that they are offering, those looks really amazing. I'd like to get a spot there. Mike

good to hear about RWU, the good things u said about it. I had heard a few stories that made me leery, but I'd imagine there's always a few bad apples in a barrel. We may be going to school next year together then. Good luck with everything.
