Cardozo 37k scholly vs. Brooklyn Full Ride

Postby mdgold » Wed Apr 21, 2010 3:05 pm

I know there are many different opinions on this but i made deposits at both schools and was hoping to just get as much feedback as possible.

I got 37k from Cardozo, so it would be 7.6k a year and full ride at Brooklyn. Both scholarships have top 40% gpa stipulations.

I'm interested in entertainment law and possible working at a big law firm for a few years (but not optimistic ITE and with either school)

Please vote and tell me your reasons! Thank you!

Do you have to be in New York? Do you really want Biglaw? Are there other options?

Neither if possible.

If you must, Brooklyn. They are comparable schools, no need to spend more than you need to. Ignore the minor ranking difference.

I actually got into BU and GW and WashU also, but I only want to work in NYC and for that much money, I don't want to take the risk to not work in the city.

I was also WL at Fordham, but i really don't think I can justify spending 200k+ when it would not really increase my chances at big law.

I know people on this website aren't really for Brooklyn/dozo in general, but if there is ANY insight it would just be helpful for me.
Thanks!

I guess some more info: I loved the cardozo school/campus and people but i know brooklyn has a greater alumni network in the city.

Any other inputs? I find it hard to believe that so few people on this board have the same options/only NYC focused schools. Please :)
