Brooklyn law v. Wake Forest v. St. Johns University ($$$)

Postby dperr971 » Tue May 11, 2010 4:56 pm

I am in the process of choosing between Brooklyn Law School, Wake Forest Law School, and St. Johns University Law School. Both Brooklyn and Wake would be sticker price, but St. Johns is giving me 25,000 per year. I would like to practice in New York, preferably in either a corporate or judicial environment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Scratch Wake if you want New York.

No way I'm paying sticker for Brooklyn over $17K/year at SJU. If you want to work in NY I would say that Wake is probably out. Although I don't know much about Wake's placement in NY, I can't imagine it places better than SJU or Brooklyn.

If it places as well in NY as both schools I'd take Wake, simply because you will have access a secondary market. If not, I would go to SJU and try to minimize the amount of debt you take on.

Take SJU with the scholarship. If you really prefer Brooklyn, try and leverage your scholarship and see if they'll match it.

FWIW, the two states Wake places most students in (other than NC) are California and New York.
