Cardozo v. UConn

Postby agoldst426 » Sat Mar 26, 2011 7:12 pm

Cardozo with $38K per year or UConn with $30K for the first year and in state tuition.
I want business law preferably in NYC. Still waiting for a decision from Cornell. . which would veto this poll.

Well don't go to UConn since you want NYC.

To judge whether the Dozo option is worth it we'd need to know your stats and the stipulations on the Dozo scholly.

How debt averse are you?

Do you want biglaw?

How badly do you want NYC?

Stipulation isn't bad but Cardozo is low on the totem pole. Since you would take Cornell at sticker it seems like you are not debt averse and that you want NYC biglaw. With your stats it is very unlikely that you get Cornell (you are below both medians) so I would say (assuming you haven't taken the LSAT 3 times already) retake for 170+ and reapply to snag at least one of the lower T14 which will give you a good shot at NYC biglaw.

I think UCONN is the better option here, if OP is willing to accept that he may have to work in CT before lateraling to NYC. There is much less competition in CT.

If you're not comfortable working in CT, don't go to UConn. Cardozo's not great for NYC big law, but if you must have NYC and these are your only two options (No Fordham/BC/BU?) I'll vote Cardozo.
