GW vs. Cardozo (Full Ride)

Postby voxclamantis » Sat Jan 23, 2010 2:22 pm

I'm mainly interested in Urban Issues and Affordable Housing/Economic Development, but more generally in Public Policy. I know it's early, I'm just curious!

Shouldn't even be a debate here. Do not go 200K into debt when you can go to school for free.

i think it would be an excellent idea to go 200K into debt to pursue affordable housing law.

No brainer dude. Cardozo is actually a good law school, it's just in a saturated market. But the risk-reward analysis says to do the 'Dozo, don't be a Bozo.

I voted for Cardozo, but this is a valid question.

Could be some of Dozo's bullshit section-stacking, top X% of class required stuff they try to pull.

Is there nothing in between? If you applied to GW for practicing in DC, you could consider W&M. They're pretty generous and are close enough to DC for summer employment.

I voted for Cardozo, given the type of law that you want to practice, assuming their scholarship requirements aren't brutal. GW is expensive, especially when you consider CoL in DC.

I've heard that Cardozo closes down the school during the sabbath... maybe I could[strike]n't[/strike] live with that[strike], personally[/strike].

Cardozo is a good school and I think it would be more worthwhile to go there for free rather than pay an estimated 69,000 a year at GW whose ranking isn't phenomenal.
