3.02 and 152

I know it's a slim chance but do you think that they will take into consideration my work experience with people with disabilities?

Irrelevant. Even if you get accepted, don't go. CUNY isn't worth sticker.

It's 12k a year tuition for in-state residents which isn't terribly bad.

You won't get rich with a degree from CUNY Law, but they've created a small niche in the PI law market.

Don't spent > $100k to have a 1/3 chance of finding a job that pays $50k.

Even if it was free, it still wouldn't be worth it from a CoL standpoint.

I'm all for low cost legal education. But CUNY doesn't even set you in line for a low-paying ADA gig after LS. Work on the LSAT, get into the mid-160's and apply elsewhere.

I'm not sure where the other posters are getting their information, but people do get jobs out of Cuny.

OP- I think that if you have an interest in PI law, Cuny is a good choice for you. The tuition is extremely cheap, so a low paying job would not be a problem.

They have slightly higher admission standards than your stats, but give it a try. Try to emphasize your softs in your personal statement.

If you could live for free with family and keep expenses down, I don't think it would be too bad.

You look at your stats, but I know real life people that have jobs out of Cuny. No, they're not top paying jobs, but you really don't need a top paying job with such low tuition. Their tuition is much lower than what I paid for my MBA degree and I didn't come out of school with my MBA degree making 6 figures. I guess I was a fool to pay for that as well. GOH.

No, I don't work for Cuny... I just know that everyone will not be getting an education at the T14 schools and that is perfectly fine. If one does their research on a lower ranked school, and make an informed decision, they should get a return on their investment. I'm so tired of everyone on this site bashing any school that is below T-14.

Your anecdote really refuted these statistics. Good job.

No one in this thread said not to go to any school other than a T14. You made that up. Nice straw man.

Firstly, I'm not a man.. I'm a woman.. Hence the name Sweet LADY... My comment stated that I'm tired of the people on this Site saying Top school or dont go. I never mentioned this thread. Furthermore, the answers given in this thread go in line with the consensus of this entire site and that is that if you can't get into one of the top schools, don't bother going.

Everyone's advice to only go to a top school makes sense considering this is top-law-schools.com

LOL. Nice straw, man?

But seriously...there were more people unemployed and seeking work nine months after graduation from the CUNY class of 2011 than there were people working full time in PI gigs.

I think CUNY is a better choice than Hofstra, Pace, St. John's, Rutgers, etc.

12k a year tuition for a degree with little job prospect is better than 50k a year tuition for a degree with little job prospect.
