Minnesota v Cardozo v UC Irvine

Postby svenskadmc » Wed Mar 29, 2017 1:55 pm

I'm deciding between Minnesota, Cardozo, and Irvine. (mostly between Minnesota and Cardozo)

Minnesota ~$30K annually
Cardozo full ride, so just cost of living in New York which is pretty high obviously
UC Irvine ~$34K annually

- I will be taking out some loans and also will be using inheritance to pay.
- I currently live in Los Angeles, but I went to undergrad at Macalester in St. Paul, MN. I also lived in New York for 9 months after graduating.
- My career goals are either to work for an organization like the Southern Poverty Law Center/ACLU/Vera Institute doing civil rights or labor law, OR to work in media infrastructure law to make it more egalitarian by opening up platform usage and access (I know that sounds vague).
- I have a 165/3.5
- I've taken the LSAT twice but I was PT-ing in the high 160s/low 170s so I would hesitantly be open to taking it again.. not dying to do that though.

How accessible do you think SPLC/ACLU jobs are from these schools?

Your goals are a little too unicorn for a grad from these schools.
What's your Plan B?
