Re: Brooklyn ($$$) Cardozo ($$$) or GW (?)

I want to balance job prospects against debt load and want to be in NY or DC I'm not expecting a full ride out of GW; I'm a splitter. 169/2.88 (I hate my younger self for blowing off community college classes ten years ago).

Not hugely interested in big law, would rather do PI but know that every 0L says that.

I wouldn't take GW at sticker, but how much would they have to toss my way to make it worth it? If I can't get enough out of GW to make it financially smart, BLS or 'Dozo?


Haha, I'm almost your spitting copy. 2.7/168, just got off the waitlist for GW an hour ago. $30,000 from Dozo, maybe I can get more if I ask again. Would also be interested in hearing opinions on GW vs Dozo.

The general consensus is that Brooklyn and bozo are equivalent, so go to whichever you like more (or flip a coin)

Perceived wisdom is that while GW is objectively a better school, it's not worth sticker. Any less than $15k per year is an easy no. At $15-20k opinions differ. Once you hit $25k+ GW becomes a no-brainer

What are your stats? GW just tossed $25k my way with no stips. Cardozo upped their previously "final offer" to $42k. I'm totally confused but happy :
