UConn or Cardozo?

Postby tsheld01 » Thu May 27, 2010 12:26 am

I got accepted to UConn with $18,000/year (and in-state tuition for the last two years) and Cardozo with no $. I'd like to work in big law in either Boston or New York after graduating and just don't know what would be the better option for me at this point --- any ideas??? My starting salary is a huge concern for me, also.

UConn. You can hardly find cheaper tuition for a school of its quality. It places well in the New England area (particularly CT and Boston) and the best students (I'm guessing top 10%) usually find work in NY. I would also think that the starting salaries coming out of UConn are comparable, if not better than, Cardozo's.

biglaw out of either seems difficult.

If you really want biglaw (and could make your app significantly better through either submitting much earlier or getting a higher LSAT), I would consider reapplying to give yourself a better shot.
