so sorry, France . where do you think you're headed?
Oh, dear. You all will make fun of me but I need to get used to saying it so here goes. NYLS. I got into Brooklyn but NYLS gave me $$$. I'm also not a traditional student as I am older, with an MBA (and the debt that goes along with it) and already work in a super small law firm doing exactly what I want to get a law degree to do and where they have offered both to SERIOUSLY accommodate my schedule AND to hire me as an attorney when I am done at school (NYLS is also my boss' alma matter). I know that NYLS doesn't have a good reputation for people who need a strong alumni or biglaw connection, but for me, it really doesn't matter. I need to get the degree and pass the bar when it's over. Fordham was a bit of a pipe dream but worth the shot. So, yea, NYLS (with my head mostly held high).
This sounds like a perfect situation for you. I think that people at TLS are too snobby. Too many of them base their self worth on where they got into law school. Congrats on the $$$. Also kudos for going to law school later in life.
totally agreeing with Hey-o. congrats, France! sounds like you made the right choice !
