Hofstra vs. American

Postby frankmorningwood » Thu Apr 30, 2015 11:01 am

I received $20,000/year at American and full tuition for 3 years at Hofstra. I also thought about NYLS because I have an app there, but I don't think they give out full scholarships. What looks like the best option?

American is literally one of the worst schools in the country. I wouldn't go there with a full ride.

Hofstra is not a good school but it is maybe OK if you wanted to work in the immediate area, had very specific and attainable career goals in that area, will graduate with very little debt, and have absolutely nothing going for you in life (i.e. no legitimate career opportunities outside of law)

I'll at least give Bortles credit for showing up on every thread I see

If you've been around enough to notice that, you know what the responses are going to be ITT.

I mean, you know what the majority of people are going to say. American is an awful, awful school that no one should ever attend. Hofstra at full ride might be okay if you could live with family and thus graduate with literally no debt, and you had very modest career goals. Otherwise, retake or do something else.
