161/3.45

Postby jlb24 » Mon Jan 30, 2012 2:43 pm

Got waitlisted today from Cardozo. Accepted last week to Temple with $7500/year. What are my chances at Brooklyn and American? And I guess Cardozo May Part-Time?

Been out of school for 2 years, non-URM, currently working in a big law firm as a paralegal.

If you don't have a strong geographic preference for NYC or DC, stick with what you have. The COL is lower in Philly, there isn't as much competition within the city because most Penn grads go out of state, and you have scholarship money.

AU and Cardozo, on the other hand, are competing with large schools in their market along with the entire T14.

As for your chances, you probably have a decent shot at AU and since you already got WL at Dozo, I'm not sure how your chances for May are affected.

IMO, though, stick with what you have unless you're willing to take the LSAT again.

Same issue as Cardozo. Large, competitive market where it's the 5th or 6th banana in the city, not including the rest of the T14. Again, I think out of your current options, Temple is the best bet.
