GW v Fordham vs Cardozo ($$$) vs BLS ($$$)

Postby monkey85 » Mon Mar 22, 2010 3:46 pm

Hi can you all give me your perspectives on school choice. I got into decent schools, but my numbers didn't get me scholarships everywhere (3.5/167). Is their a noticeable difference in quality of students, professors, and employment that I would want to pay sticker at GW or Fordham?

Geographic Interests: New York or DC markets
Employment Interests: Clerkships then Government/DA/AUSA/DOJ type of prosecution

The Schools:
- GW (sticker), live at home and commute
- Fordham (sticker), pay for NYC living out-of-pocket
- Cardozo (full-ride), pay for NYC living out-of-pocket
- Brooklyn Law School (full-ride), pay for NYC living out-of-pocket

I'd like the best access to either NY or DC District Attorney's office...and later-on US Attorney's office. Both competitive, I know. Any thoughts?

Assuming normal scholarship stipulations on 'Dozo and BLS (top 40%)-try and pit them against one another. see if you can get a stipend, or get the money unconditional...

Based off the #'s I'd go Cordoza full ride. To me the difference in rankings between #30 and #50 isn't worth 150k.
