Cornell vs. Duke

Postby xjykybl » Thu May 10, 2012 9:16 pm

Sticker at both schools. I want to work in Big Law in NYC.
Which one do you think is better? Any opinion is appreciated.
Thanks a lot!

Doesn't matter. Go to whichever one you like more.

Roughly peer schools; Duke might be a bit better. Similar class sizes too, if I am not mistaken. Duke has a reputation for being for douches, and Cornell has a reputation for being cold and competitive.

If you're dead set on NYC, Cornell might have a slight edge.

For NYC biglaw? Cornell my friend.

(but Duke would be okay too if you liked it more)

Peer schools are peer.

This being said, Cornell has the slight advantage in NYC biglaw placement, but not enough to overcome if you don't like it and/or you really like Duke.
