Suffolk($$$$) v. Syracuse($$$$) v. Hofstra($$$$)

Postby likogan » Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:17 pm

Hello everyone!!

My issue is which law school I should choose.

Scholarship amount is pretty much the same.

I know these schools are not good choices.

Please just consider as if you have a gun pointed to your head and must choose one or die.
(Please don't say RETAKE or Don't go....)


Help me out here!

Thanks!

Suffolk. Hopefully you're interested in criminal law or unemployment. Either way, I wouldn't mind being unemployed in the Irish-American motherland.

Suffolk based solely on location, unless you are interested in a joint/dual degree program at Syracuse. However, I know very little about Hofstra.

Among the three, the only school with national layperson recognition is Syracuse.

Are there any stipulations on the scholarships? What kind of law would you ideally like to do? Have you ever lived in Boston, Syracuse or Long Island? Where would you rather live upon graduating?

This thread is just as worthless as your last thread without knowing the stips on each scholarship.

Yes. And if at this point you can not succinctly present relevant information despite numerous requests to do so, then sorry, law school is not for you.

If you KNOW that these schools are bad choices, there is no reason to go to any of them. Retake/reapply or get a job.

I'm pretty sure Suffolk stacks its sections. I know a few people who lost whatever money they had. Plus its just not a good school. But, I dunno much about the other two.

Suffolk does not stack their sections and their scholarship retention rate is 85%.

Ok that's a good thing. However, my other statement still stands.

IMT: where did you get this info?


Thread resurrection.

I believe, he got it directly from the Suffolk admissions office. I saw the email chain through PM.
