Full ride to Quinnipiac or a partial scholarship to Cardozo

Postby aalaw18 » Thu Feb 05, 2015 2:53 pm

So I'm still waiting to hear back from the T-14 schools that I applied to but until then I'm trying to consider my back ups. So If I do not get into a T-14 school, should I attend Cardozo with a partial scholarship or should I attend Quinnipiac with a full ride? I plan on transferring out of both if I don't make the T-14 cut but I want to know which would be a better to attend. Especially if I don't make the top 10% to transfer out.

Do not go to a law school you don't plan on graduating from. You said yourself you don't know what will happen if you don't make top 10%. 90% of the people in those schools don't make top 10%. What happens if you don't make the grades? Your options become dropping out and losing money, or graduating from a school where the job prospects aren't worth attending for.

These are both horrific, life ruining options.

Quinnipiac placed only 34.5% into full time, permanent legal jobs. That means almost two out of every three graduates couldn't find gainful legal employment NINE months after graduation.

Cardozo is a better option, but not by much. There, you've got a little better than a 50/50 shot at a fulltime permanent lawyer job. It is absolutely not worth six figures of debt.

Going to any law school with the intention of transferring is really, really stupid. Odds are heavily against you. It is far easier to get a higher LSAT score than kill it in law school.

Retake and reapply, or don't to to law school.

I got some scholarship money from Cardozo. Is it worth negotiating it? I'm in their median gpa range and above their 75% LSAT percentile range. This is if Columbia and Georgetown say no.

in that case definitely negotiate, and don't go unless you get, like, a full ride. cardozo must be at least as desperate as everyone else to land decent lsats this cycle.

that said, tcr is almost certainly retake given these options.

i hope these scare you:

Yes, negotiate, but I wouldn't go there absent a near full ride.

What are your numbers? If you're looking at Cardozo and Quinnipiac, I can't see Columbia happening for you.

Did you only apply to Quinnipiac, Cardozo, Georgetown and Columbia?
