What are people's oppinion on St. John's? Are career prospects thin due to the abundance of better law schools in New York City? Thanks.

Well you definitely should not pay full tuition to go there. I think in general, it does not have the best academic reputation, but I am not sure if there is a tangible reason for this. It just seems to be what most people think about it.

I think you need like a huge scholly for going there to make sense due to high COL and tuition. Like 75% of tuition or higher. And maybe only full.

even with a full scholarship, do you think it would be a better option to go to cardozo with some $ or fordham (paying full price) over st johns?

I agree I would probably go to fordham at full cost if I get in, but is cardozo (with very little scholarship) worth that much more than st. johns with full scholarship?

I have the same question actually and can't find all that much about St. John's.
Full Ride, v partial scholarship at Cardozo...

If you want to be a D.A. in Queens County,New York St.John's is a pretty good school. They are heavily represented on the bench in Queens also. I personally would take a full ride at St. John's over Cardozo but not Fordham.
