Pace vs. Cardozo full rides - International Law

Postby john1990 » Fri Nov 30, 2012 2:19 pm

Which school should i attend? I recently found that Cardozo wont permit a 1L to take an elective in addition to the required courses. Hopefully, Pace wont do likewise.
Location is also a concern, i can't afford much in the way of housing
Job placement is not as great a concern as faculty an facilities

1) When you say international law, what do you mean?
2) What do you want to be doing right after graduation?

RT: I admire your restraint. :lol:

OP: What are your other options? What are your numbers? What are the stipulations on the scholarships? What's the difference in total cost of living for each?

Both schools, measured in terms of career prospects, are categorically awful.

There are no jobs in international law. Boom. I just told you what it would have taken you three years and 60K in living expenses, books, and accrued interest to figure out. I'll accept 10% of that, 6K, payable by cash or check if you like.

That is not a good reason to want to study "international law." What type of legal work do you actually want to do? Firm work? (And what kind of firm work? Corporate? Litigation? Anything more specific?) Public interest work?

You will not work in international law, especially coming from these schools.
