BLS versus Cardozo. Is Cardozo much better?

Also, will BLS drop in rankings due to their numbers fiasco?

There's not a huge difference. Cardozo is slightly better and if the cost is the same I advise people to go to Cardozo. If BLS is cheaper I say BLS.

Keep in mind that you'll probably face stiffer competition at Cardozo.

I think the cardozo quality of education is really exceptional-- I don't think that employment outcomes are very different at all though. Also it is really fucking annoying explaining what cardozo is when people ask where you are going to attend law school. Consider that a soft factor in brooklyn's favor.

Same as before. One year's worth of rankings aren't going to drastically change the preferences of the hiring partners of every NYC law firm. Cardozo is still a slightly better school and is a bit more competitive in terms of placement, IMHO.

The advice on going to Cardozo if cost is same, and BLS if cheaper, is solid.

But by and large, it's half-a-dozen and six.

That's not much worse than having people thing you go to Brooklyn College Law School.
