RU-Newark vs. Cardozo May PT Please help Deadline next week!

Postby avola6587 » Thu Apr 12, 2012 8:59 pm

Hi everyone!

I am from New Jersey and would be happy with working in either Jersey or NYC. Not sure what type of law I want to practice, although BigLaw looks appealing at the moment. RU would be in state with no scholarship (already tried negotiating), and I have $4000 annual need based grant from Cardozo. Not sure if Cardozo is worth the extra money, but the seat deposit deadline is next week. I already put down a seat deposit at Rutgers for full time, but it is partially refundable. Really need some help with this decision!! Thanks everyone!

Rutgers- Dozo biglaw placement is pretty weak and the school is insanely expensive. You do know you probably won't get biglaw from either of those schools, right?

3.51/159. I really studied my ass off for the LSAT. Spent a solid 4 months and my scores ranged from 150-160 one time, so I am quite pleased with my score as it is at the top of my PT range. I am aware at the relatively low placement in to BigLaw at both schools, but does going to Dozo open up any doors that would be closed at RU?

Dozo has a marginally better shot at biglaw, but the extra debt is not worth it.

What a complete douche-bag.
