Just to clarify ... if you definitely want NYC market, I would go to Cardozo and be at the top of your class. There are plenty of biglaw jobs to be had there. If you aren't set on NY, then I think I would pay sticker to go to BU/BC where a much higher percent of students are getting top jobs. Also, it kind of depends of debt aversive you are.

Hey,

Just out of curiosity, for those that have received some sort of scholarship, besides telling us your reward amount, can you tell us your numbers so we have some sort of gauge their requirements.

Thanks a lot, and congrats again to all the admits!!
Anyone set on going for sure?

I'm 50/50, still waiting to hear back from a majority of my west coast schools.

167/3.7 - full ride. good chance i am going - hard to turn that money down.
also i heard nothing about scholarship info on the phone, so just because they don't mention it doesn't mean you get nothing.

It seems like Cardozo seems to have two objectives this cycle- accept high GPAs and attract URMs. LSAT scores seem to be not as important based on the 0Ls on this forum.

That would be quite swell. I was actually just wondering if still being IR for over a month is a bad/good/whatever sign?

Eh, I guess I'm the exception. 3.43/164 and judging from here and LSN, I was in the first batch of acceptances (in 1/4).

I was held at nearly the exact time with 3.2/166. Oh well.

Nah. 165, 3.3 here, 20,000 per year. Not exactly a high GPA.

Man... I'm perplexed. I could see if you had great softs you getting in over my 166 3.2, I guess my confusion comes in when you get a sizable scholarship and I simply get held.

My softs are okay but not great by any standards. If you are really interested you can PM me and I'll tell you.

I apologize for the wording of my statement by the way, I didn't want to make it seem like you would NEED great softs to get in over me. You getting in over me is not odd at all, I'm simply confused as to what makes their adcomms give you 20k and me a hold.

No worries, I wasn't offended :) Maybe your app is just so amazing you are being YP'd.
