I threw out a few applications with little hope for much success. However, I did get accepted to a local University in third tier ranking. It does have decent reputation in this area and I have plenty of connections and prospects. It is a cheap school, 14k tuition, but the major drawback is that I am likely to start off by making under 60K annual salary. The other option is Hofstra. I don't mind moving to the area, as I am not to crazy about where I currently reside. Along with a high price, I have heard some negative things about Hofstra, but by comparison there seems to be a little more ambition than staying where I am at. I know it's a risk, but the lack of risk just seems so damn boring!

Like I said, I have heard some negative things about Hofstra, but when reading this forum, I have heard negative things about almost every school. It seems everything out there is shitty. It's amazing there are any law schools still functioning after so many years. That is since according to this forum it's all shit. Basically what I am saying is to please leave your any negativity elsewhere. Thanks

your local school is a much better bet in your case, it sounds like. you are looking at 200k debt (housing, food, books, booze) from Hofstra easy...

Aside from the debt, think about all the higher ranking school you're going to have to compete in order to get a job.
