retake.

but seriously, don't aim for NYLS. It's terrible. Why not sit out a year or two and get a score that can get you into a good program?

You're probably out at Fordham, but have a shot at the others. You probably shouldn't go to any of the others, but you appear to have already overlooked the glaring problems with each of the schools in order to avoid retaking. In terms of scholarships, my general understanding is that most schools don't offer part-time students much money to begin with, but ignoring that, CUNY doesn't do scholarships at all, and you're not a shoo-in for money at any of these.

What are your career goals, and why are you specifically looking for a part-time program?

Thanks for this! LSN definitely showed that CUNY does almost no scholarships and I also thought Fordham was a huge long shot*. I'm pretty content at the moment in City gov. and it's a stable job. I'm looking to pick up a PMP soon, and will just make a career out of project management. I've trying to get a JD for awhile and it's been a long goal before 30, but it will likely just be an addition to my overall resume to use in a government career rather than practicing law -- which is why I'm pretty conservative about spending too much $ although I can afford CUNY straight front.

That makes this a lot easier. You should not go to law school.

In terms of extra support - there's a mayor's scholarship for city employees. The union (depending on which one you're in) also cuts a check for 1k per year that you're a student.

I know plenty at NYLS that are gainfully employed in my office and have no debt, along with some PT students currently enrolled. They seem to like it there.

If your stated goals are in Gov't, you're better off getting a different degree - what's your masters in? I'm thinking Public Administration is more suitable for your goals.

I wouldn't recommend law school as something to pass the time if it's not a field you intend on pursuing. It'll end up being a paperweight degree as well.

Yes, you're right. Thanks!
