Cardozo with $$ or BU with $

Postby AHX2 » Thu Apr 14, 2011 7:14 pm

Total cost of attendance for Cardozo would be around 100K, for BU would be 150K.

I want to work in NYC after graduation and am not wedded to BigLaw, but not closed to the idea either. I've have been working here in NYC for the past 3 years at a BigLaw firm (since I graduated from undergrad) and have a strong network here. My family, friends, and sig other live here too and while my first choice would be to stay in NY, BU is a better school and does place well in NY. I'm just not sure it's worth the extra 50K. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'm also waitlisted at Fordham.

My honest opinion: I'd pay 50k more for BU. That's about all I have to offer.

I'm a Dozo fan but BU takes this one. It's still the better school by more than 50K.

You'll still be in NYC with family and friends all summer, vacations, many weekends, etc., and will be in good shape to get a job there after LS.
