Help! Chicago-Kent vs Brooklyn

Postby kimheami » Wed Apr 13, 2011 12:55 pm

So I was offered a full tuition scholarship my first year at Chicago-Kent but was only given 6K from Brooklyn. I really would like to be in NYC in the long run.
I know they say not to pick a school based on the idea of transferring after your first year, that you are setting yourself up for disappointment and so on and so forth.
But I know that I could graduate from both Brooklyn and CK without being miserable if i am not able to transfer so I am not that worried. NYU and Columbia were my dream schools so I thought that it might be better for me to be in nyc if I wanted to transfer.

So the question for all of you that I wanted to ask was, are these two schools peer schools that I could negotiate more money from Brooklyn?
Also I feel like Chicago-Kent has a pretty good reputation in Chicago, but do you think that having so many law schools that are ranked better than Brooklyn in NYC will make it much more difficult to find jobs in the later run?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Both schools will have a tough time with market paying jobs ($160,000 in your case). All things equal, I would probably go with Chicago Kent as it would be significantly cheaper. However, neither is worth a ton of debt.
