New York Law School or John Marshall Chicago?

Postby rgucsb » Tue Mar 16, 2010 10:18 pm

John Marshall is offering me a $18,000 per year scholarship and New York Law is not giving me any money.
Should I go to a Tier 4 with $ or a Tier 3 w/ no scholarship?

My GPA is a 3.5 from a top 15 public university and my LSAT is a 147 (I've always been a horrible test taker); I took the Testmasters course and raised my score from a 139 to 147.

I am still undecided over the type of law I would like to practice. Though I did enjoyed the internships I had at the DA's and Public Defenders offices in San Diego while I was an undergrad.

I am leaning towards New York Law because I ultimately want to transfer into my dream school, Cardozo Law. I am interested in their Law, Media, and Society Program.


Thanks, looking forward to the help

You do realize that the bar exam is a test right?

Both schools are awful and both will likely land you in a 30 to 40k a year job. That said, at least one shit hole is cheaper... If you want to live in Chicago, go to John Marshal. If you want to live in NY, go to NYLS.
