Hofstra, NYLS or SUNY Buffalo?

Postby cocoabean250 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:42 am

So I've been accepted to these three and waitlisted at Fordham, St. John's, & Cardozo. I've decided to put in a deposit at one of the three and take the hit and withdraw if I get into Fordham or Cardozo, maybe St. John's, but I'm not sure what to pick. Hofstra gave me 10,000 and is really close to home, NYLS gave me 6,000, and SUNY Buffalo gave me nothing, but I'm a NY resident so it won't be that much. Help!!

I think Buffalo is clearly the standout school, although if you want to stay in the NYC market Hofstra may help you make better connections.
NYLS....just don't do it.

Most people on here will tell you to retake. Living at home and going to Hofstra is reasonable just remember that you will have about 100K in loans if you are lucky, and will need to stay at the top of the class to pay them off. NYLS shouldnt be an option when lined up against hofstra w/ greater scholly. My 2 cents. Am a 0L as well so take it for what its worth.
If you want to stay in the NYC area then hofstra, if not buffalo

Don't do any. But if you must, Buffalo is the best school. Also, it is cheap as hell to attend and live there. It may not get you into NYC though but a lot of decent sized firms in Buff, Roch and Western NY hire Buff grads.

I agree with retake. If not, Buffalo all the way. You might be able to get out with less than 100K in debt where at Hofstra and NYLS you will have over 100K.

Two of the most truly awful schools at enormous prices. I feel sorry for no one who pays that kind of money for such a terribad degree. Don't go to either OP. Retake or don't go.

Tuition + COL at Buffalo will still put you 120K in debt and confine your job opportunities to upstate, so it's not really an attractive option.

Retake. And if you don't have WE, get some, both to build your credentials and get money for law school.

If you insist on going now: Hofstra. The scholly plus living at home will limit your debt to about 100K. And at least your degree will be from a school in your target market.

MAD law bro, at least you'd save COL expenses.

That is, if you have to go.
