You'd have to elaborate on your goals, ties, situation, etc. to get a good answer, though I have a feeling "retake" will dominate this thread soon.

Is that the scholarship amount or the total COA?

This will get retake-owned one way or the other, and for good reason. Seriously, retake.

to be honest, I'm not sure what type of law I want to work. would like in-house.

Which choice will be better financially considering the coa and employment.


Do you have ties to NY/NJ? And if you have a scholarship, what are the stipulations?

You should go to a much, much better school if you're serious about eventually landing an in-house job... RETAKE.

Seriously. I wouldn't attend either of these schools for less than a full ride. $100k for SH? You must be joking.

Yeah SH is not worth anywhere near this amount of money. And SUNY isn't either. Retake.
Why won't you? Also take the job. You'll honestly be lucky to have a full time attorney job that pays 40k out of these schools.

OP, you have a 40k/year job? TAKE IT! You're looking at a similar salary from either school, but with a boatload of debt.

Law school will always be there. Go work for a few years and retake the LSAT in the process. If you want to go in a few years, then do another cycle.

Basically, connections you have to a given area and reasons why you would stay there (family there, grew up there, SO found a job there, etc.). They're important because firms won't want to invest in you and train you if they believe you're going to bolt for friendlier territory. As you'll see from reading the many threads on the subject, however, there's a lot of disagreement about what constitutes a good tie and exactly how important they are.

OP, you already got advice. Take the job, and then either retake and redo your cycle, or don't go to law school. Its really that simple. Starting pointless new threads when you already got good advice is not going to change anything.

^This is true.

The only real advice I can give you is that you'll have to take responsibility for yourself. The only way you'll be comfortable with your decision, is if it is your decision. Everyone thinks it's a good idea (as do I) to accept your job offer and reevaluate after some time has passed. That, however, may not be a decision you are comfortable with...and you'll need to figure that out without the advice of forums' catfish.
