HELPPP!!! Law school advice.

Postby painsinmysides » Mon Feb 15, 2010 1:33 pm

Assuming finances are irrelevant, what is the most logical choice for someone who wants to work in NYC (but not to the point of excess), BigLaw. I do like the idea of doing law school outside of NYC and then coming back to NYC, but i don't know how rational that is...

My options: BU, BC, GW, Fordham, USC

If those are your options, and you want to work in NYC, Fordham.

Is the difference that big between Fordham and other schools?

For NYC, yes. The next best options are GW and BU...forget about USC and BC. But if you don't care about money, then Fordham definitely.

The no-brainer choice is Fordham, followed by GW/BU.

Fordham. And most people go to NYC to start then go elsewhere, not vice-versa.
