I concur. I've been stuck under review since 2/6, too.. :cry: :cry:


I'm been UR since 1/5/12 and still nothing.

You can write a letter of continuing interest, as it kind of forces them to pull up your file. Also, consider personalizing it and sending it to an admissions officer. You can find their names on the website.

Cardozo dropped from rank 50 to 56 this year.

It is no longer a Tier 1 law school.

Ranking doesn't bother me;

employment rate does...

Generally speaking there exists a correlation between ranking and employment rate at graduation. In addition there exists a correlation between ranking and the number of employers who are represented at OCI.

I suspect that Cardozo's drop from a Tier 1 to Tier 2 Law school will directly effect the number of employers who show up to OCI.

Well Cardozo is a regional school: that means relative ranking compared to other schools matters more than general ranking

as long as Cardozo ranks higher than peer schools in NYC market (Brooklyn, St.John, etc.) it should be fine... (though in this economy only a handful of schools are actually "fine")

That only matters if those were the only ponies in the race. In NYC market you are going up against T14 Grads and Fordham. Available jobs outside of SI for Dozo grads are scarce, so it does matter.

Not sure yet. I was at work so they left a voicemail with an acceptance and scholly.


Edit: Thanks to everyone for all the congrats.

In today via phone call. Was at work and I just checked the voice mail.

Nothing mentioned about scholarship money.

Guys, could you help to understand more about the content of LOCI. What to write in it, size, format, maybe you have some examples? I was waitlisted a month ago, so I think it's time to make some movement from my side.

Well, it is quite obvious that T14 Grads get priority placement into whatever market they choose but outside of that, Fordham places significantly better than Cardozo (also quite obvious). BigLaw (NYC) goes something like this for recruiting: T14-->Few T20 Schools/Fordham (likely need to finish top40-50% for good chance)-->Cardozo (likely need to finish top20-25% for good chance)--Brooklyn-->Seton Hall/Rutgers (NY)/St Johns, etc...

US news rankings are absolutely meaningless though, and for more valid/legitimate employment research, you may want to consult this: http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... 2483173162

HI! Congrats to everyone who was accepted to Cardozo :) As for those who are starting in May, what are you doing about housing? I'm trying to find an apt or sublet something close to the school (hopefully within walking distance). I would love school housing, but I hear it's hard to get into.
Soooo anyone else looking for a roommate? or maybe know of anyone who is? Please contact me!

Can't wait to see everyone in may!
