If by "do well" you mean "the most likely outcome is NOT having a long term, full time job as a lawyer" or "barely give you a greater than 50/50 shot at a long term, full time legal job" then sure, they "do well."


PWNED. But in all seriousness, if you're looking at Pepperdine, the California legal market is tough to crack as it is... Stanford, Berk, UCLA and USC allplace MUCH better in CA. Then you've got other regional schools adding to the CA over-saturation.

And FWIW, you'd be an absolute fool to pay sticker at Fordham.

I voted Fordham PT, but really how much do you want to go to law school... Also how much can you make on the side?

To put it in perspective, about 1/2 the evening class at Fordham at least in my year make enough (or get tuition reimbursement) to the point that we did not have significant debt while attending part time, and several people in the class definitely make enough that they can pay sticker and still live decently (even well). If your not in that situation, you probably should reconsider a bit (retake for a scholarship)... You have to factor in that a good job in NYC will pay you a lot more than even a full tuition + expenses scholarship somewhere else, so it depends on what kind of a job you can get if you go PT.
