Brooklyn Law 90K Scholarship Worth It?

Postby wheatbar » Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:54 pm

So my GPA and LSAT aren't great. I'm coming from a top 10 US News national university (undergraduate) so I thought that would help but my only option this cycle is a 30K/year scholarship to Brooklyn Law. Because I'm targeting biglaw or in-house opportunities (or clerkship to mid/big law) I'm wondering if it's worth it to even attend with this scholarship offer. I'm coming from out-of-state. I don't think I can meaningfully raise my LSAT score and I'm too old to retake and reapply. This is my last year. But, I don't want to continue in my current job. I'm wondering if this is a decent option. I already tried to negotiate my scholarship and got nothing. I'm still waiting to hear from two schools.

In all honesty, I don’t think this is a good idea.
It would be very difficult to reach your stated career goals from Brooklyn law.

If you think you’re too old to wait for one year and retake, you might also be too old to take a risky path that might end up making your life more difficult financially or otherwise, especially if you’d be moving from another state, etc.
