as for the jewish element? yeah, i did see a handful of men wearing the yarmulke, but i did not at all feel like the school was overtly jewish. in fact, it felt (to me) as if they were trying to distance themselves from the whole jewish thing. all of the students i spoke with really emphasized that they barely even noticed the jewish influence of the parent school, except when it came to certain things like the kosher microwave in the student lounge, and the weird hours the school and library closed at.

ugh. could the catered food they provided been any worse? i saw what they were serving and made a beeline for the door and went around the corner to grab a slice of pizza and came back for the afternoon activities. when i came back, it looked as though no one had even touched their food!

on the whole, cardozo really impressed me (aside from the food!). i think it will all boil down to how the ASD goes at my other top choice, and whether i can negotiate more scholarship money from cardozo.

and one last thing...i was actually quite surprised to see so many prospective students there with their parents.


What was the food? This makes me curious lol.


Salmon- with no other options for people who don't eat fish like me. There was some rice and veggies that weren't too bad. The problem is that they timed it poorly and the food was cold. The reception after was way better... carving station and chocolate covered fruit, yum.

I got into a lengthy conversation with a professor on his terrorism and law class, very interesting.


Ah I see. Safe choice to keep kosher and still have meat. At least they tried lol.

any current or prospective students have any experience in negotiating more aid from cardozo? multiple students at ASD told me that they and many others have been successful, but i was wondering how much more aid can usually be negotiated? while i did get a generous dean's scholarship from the school, it just doesn't seem like it would be enough to make it financially feasible for me to move to the east coast from california.

That is a pretty far move. I'm from south Florida, and I thought that I had a costly move--California will be pretty bad. Good luck.. I'll be interested in anyone's input in this matter.

I'm very excited for the admittance to this school except i got no scholly from them. However, I did receive a 20k from brooklyn and 25k from villanova as well as other 20k's from similarly ranked schools. Is it smart to mention these "lower" ranked schools in my request for some money from cardozo?

I'm serious. They should record everyone's reaction and play it at orientation.

Gahhhh waitlisted for the May program... why do I have a feeling they are going to wait until one-to-two weeks before classes start to tell me?

Thanks!!! I'm sorry to hear about your waitlist... they seem to be waitlisting a lot of people (according to LSN and self-reporting, granted) including myself. It's still better than a rejection though, amiright?!

Always better! I hope you hear from your top school soon. If you do end up studying in the city though, we should catch some Liverpool games!
