DAMN, Cardozo sponsors must be loaded. that school is giving out full rides like nothing. Nice job, I predict they will jump at least 5 spots in rankings, maybe even 7 or more

you're 169/3.66 right?

I'm interested in seeing what the lowest full ride looks like... as I want it with my 170/3.34.


Yup, that's about right for my #s.

FWIW, someone with a 170/3.4 got a full ride last year according to LSN. But also saw a 170/3.45 who didn't quite get a full scholly, but damn close (120k total). So you should be fine. Good luck!


in, full scholarship, numbers nearly identical to these. tempting! hey dudes, let's all go so they'll jump way up in the ranking and then we'll be attending a T30 for frreeeee! :)

Ingenious! Of course we'd put Cardozo in the poorhouse and probably cause it to fail but still...

Has anyone thought about asking for a travel subsidy to their ASD? for those that haven't received it yet, the admissions packet says that provide them...

Got the call yesterday (164/3.5) and he mentioned to me that they give out travel stipends. I'm hoping that means I'll be getting one and he wasn't leading me on.

congrats! when did you go complete?


(Edit my double post so as not to seem like a moron)

Originally was complete the middle of November, but changed to 10/24. Forgot to mention I was awarded 25k/year (barely the cost of living), but I'm grateful as it's certainly better than nothing.

It's full tuition with no strings and a guaranteed housing spot (for your 1st year)

Yeah I know but what is the exact amount in $$$ ???

people on LSN post 135,000 but it seems that tuition is like 40,000 a year so where do the additional 15000 come in?

I'm pretty sure tuition is about $44,000 a year which would mean $132 and I'm guessing people just rounded up instead of doing the exact math

Yes. I have down that it is $44,6 ... so thats $133,800 .. people are maybe rounding up (which makes some sense to do as tuition will go up), or they got small stipends.

same dilemma but with more money to cardozo. this is what my dad sent me (he obviously doesnt want me being in debt forever)
http://www.cardozo.yu.edu/MemberContent ... derid=306#

Its kinda nice to see that even if we choose cardozo, we can still work at biglaw and make money. if you compare it to fordham, its really not that much worse because i think a lot of people choose cardozo if they dont want to work in a private firm

i'm dont really think this is true because not a huge percentage from cardozo ends up going into gov't or PI (at least not a lot more than any other school). however, i am surprised that over 35% got biglaw that year! i know its worse now but thats pretty high.

Okay, let's slow down for a second. Those 35% of Cardozo grads that year DID NOT GET BIG LAW. 35% of the students who got work in law firms got jobs working for firms of over 500 lawyers. 57.8% of the class went to firms, and 35% of them were in 500+ firms, so about 21.1% of the whole class would have gotten into 500+ firms. (this is for the class of 2008)

NLJ has Cardozo's class of 2005 having 12% getting NLJ250 firms. Keep in mind that only about the top 100 NLJ firms have 500+ lawyers (so, the percentage who got 500+ firms is likely less than 12%.

So, believe what you will ...

Much better school. Much better placement.
