*sigh* I apparently agreed to not only a luncheon at the ASD on 3/20, I'm now part of the Q&A because the prof whose class was at the same time "signed off" on my being there. So...0L's, come at me!
How about the generic one to start, 1. How do you like it? Professors, classmates, overall experience
2. what feel do u get for Dozo's place in the NY market? Are they well-respected in the BigLaw world & represented w. networking events and OCI?
thanks a lot!
1. I do like it, and think it's a more friendly environment then friends of mine at other schools report. A lot of the prof's are top-notch, but there are also some duds. So far, I've had a good experience. That's not to say there aren't assholes here. There are. Just as there are at many other schools. Why? Because law school.
2. This question is tricker to answer. Our IP kids tend to do pretty well. I don't think the people who interviewed through OCI got very far (I didn't do OCI...I'm a PI person). My understanding from friends who are trying to go private is that they're seeking out mid to small law firms. There are a select few who go into BigLaw, but that is definitely not the norm. Its primary market is NY for sure. It's a regional school, and I'm not sure why we have so many people from out-of-state. One thing I've noticed of Cardozo is that there are TONS of events here, and if networking is your thing, you'll have more than enough opportunities. I kinda think networking is a boomer flame, but then again, I'm headed into a very niche area that just doesn't lend itself to the swanky cocktail parties / "networking" events that most firms foster.
