It was nice to see the school, which was pretty generic college feeling, and get familiar with the area, which is amazing, but it was obvious everyone was on their best behavior. i didn't learn too much that i couldn't tell online i don't think. i was pretty tired too so i didn't do much mingling and socializing but the free beer was nice.
maybe because i was tired, i didn't feel super excited at the end, but the more i'm thinking about it, cardozo seems to make a bit of sense for me. we'll see.
Good to know. Do you think you would have learned more from a one-on-one visit with a current student (not part of admissions)? I have an in with one and am considering that route over ASD. Also- did you do a housing tour? I have heard the Alabama is EXPENSIVE.
peep my edit.
The Alabama is a good way to throw 60k-80k down the drain. When I saw the price I said NOPE. That is a rip off. It is a nice building, but they priced it too high. I mean way high. I don't imagine many law students are loaded and can throw money away on housing just because it's pretty. I wanted to ask Cardozo did their students have job offers waiting for them that justified throwing $$$ on housing.
I had a full tuition skolly in UG. I splurged on housing and lived in the nicest apartments. I graduated and looked at my student loans and wanted to kick myself. I would have been debt free graduating college, if I didn't waste money on stupid shit. I didn't even spend most of my time in the apartment to justify the cost. I could have stayed doeming or found a cheap apt.
Thanks for sharing! Another perspective is always welcome! I am coming from out of state so on-campus is lucrative. Did you tour the other option they have by chance? I think it is supposed to be a little more expensive, but don't quote me on that.
Also ouch on the UG debt. I escaped that one luckily...
