Numbers? Career goals? Other options? Desired practice location post-graduation? Scholarship stips?

same stips (top 80%), want to live/practice in NY (born and raised), unsure as to what exactly i want to go into... maybe this is just a personal "which one feels right" decision?

Does top 80% mean you have to be in the top 80% of your class or that you have to be in the top 20%? I wouldn't go to either with any stips, personally, but I'm averse to scholarship stipulations in general. On that note, I probably wouldn't go to either school period, but again, I've got different career goals than some.

What are your LSAT and GPA numbers? With scholarship offers like those, you're bound to have other options, yes?


ETA: NM. Just looked at your profile. Retake, reapply next year. You can do much, much better than either of those schools.

OP, if you think you can break into the 170s on the LSAT, then you should consider taking another year off and reapplying next cycle. If you got in the 170s, you'd break into the T14 (but you'd likely have more law school debt than your full ride or near full ride at Brooklyn and Cardozo). Just something to consider.

If you're set on going to law school next year, then I say go to Cardozo since you got a full ride.

Don't. But if you must, Dozo.

You forgot to add an option for "Poast in the correct forum"
