Oh, Romothesavior...it's been so long since I've seen you.

It was surprising back in 2010-2011, even after browsing TLS. It's surprising to every BU student I tell about it. I'm STILL surprised and I know it happened.

No clue. I transferred after 1L year to BU. I know they are heavy in the PI, which means loans are forgiven after 10 years for those who hold those positions.

I WILL SAY THIS.

During OCI, firms at BU that were looking for Top 15% were also at NYLS, but were only looking at Top 5%, 1% or even Top 5 STUDENTS...that's right....top 5 students out of 500.


As I figured.

How's BU going for you?


Graduated with two interviews pending. Have a third coming up.

OCI was abysmal for me as a transfer. USPS actually screwed me by not forwarding my mail in time. A callback I received came two weeks late and by the time I did the call back, they had offers out. I was put on a short list, but alas the person above me took the offer.

Ouch to the second part, but good luck on those interviews.

I mean, it was in my third line of the original post that I was applying for transfer. lol

yes, it was fun. You made a ton of fun of me. Laughed "AT" me even. I still stand by NYLS as a school . . . it's not the best...but it gets the job done.

It really shouldn't though. NYLS is among the very worst of the worst. The data is all there, very plain to see. The last few years they've placed less than 5% into firms of even 100+ (in New York!) and less than 2% into true NYC biglaw. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that only a select handful of students have a prayer at OCI. This shouldn't be even remotely surprising to anyone who has done their homework, and certainly not a recent graduate.

You are one of the fortunate ones that did well enough to get out of there. Most of your former classmates will be horribly un/under-employed, so I really hope you will encourage people to think twice about NYLS. It is a rancid shithole sending about 3/4s of the class to terrible outcomes. But it sounds like you still stand by it.

Either way, sincere best of luck to you in your upcoming interviews and over the course of your career.

Thanks Romo.

I mean, you are presupposing that 1) everyone who goes to NYLS wants BigLaw, and that's not the case...at all, and 2) that if you aren't in private practice, you will suffer terrible outcomes.

Admittedly, that's my personal measure of success, but I'm recognizing that there are other significant opportunities outside of private practice that NYLS students take advantage of. Therefore, I can't plainly discourage someone from attending. I can lay out what I know and let them decide for themselves. NYLS can be a good school for some people.

I'm just trying to be objective about it. And while stats obviously don't measure up to T14, or even T1 schools, NYLS students do end up employed (even if months after graduation). They also go into alternate careers.

I guess what I'm trying to say is NYLS is not right for you, but NYLS may be right for some. I don't think I'm naive for thinking this.

As of this post, 15 students have BigLaw jobs lined up, out of 273 students, which is roughly 5.5% of the 3L class.

I went to NYLS because I had a good scholarship, landed a BigLaw job, and am happy about my decision to attend.

273? Did they severely reduce their class size? Ours was 498 my 1L year before transferring + part time.

Not sure if that number includes part timers, but it was the last one they used to rank us. I do know that they significantly reduced class sizes after the "bubble" year, which I think was your class.

I hope so. 120 person classes were a little big.

How were the women? Better or worse than the average NYC chick? Did Columbia and NYU bros scoop up all the hotties?

Desperately in need of a Korngold Real Estate Transactions outline. He's teaching as an adjunct at NYU, but none of our outline banks has anything for his class. Help? Please

Also, sorry if this falls outside of the scope of the thread. Don't mean to derail.

NYLS, not NYU. Also, don't know the prof or the class. Try outlinedepot.com

He's a full-time professor at NYLS, which is why I'm posting here. The prof is Korngold, and the course is Real Estate Transactions.

I did! Offered in December; couldn't start until March because I had to wait for bar admission.

Mid size firm (80-attorney firm). Doing litigation. Is all good.
