School of Law
New York University

Vault's Rating 4.5 out of 5

Uppers

  • Top-notch clinics and seminars
  • Admissions places a strong emphasis on diversity
  • Impressive loan repayment options for students interested in public interest
  • New York is the place to be

Downers

  • Firm and short deadline on scholarship offers may be disconcerting to some
  • Not enough emphasis placed on the practical study of law
  • Too many mixed reviews on employment options for a New York City school
  • The New York City cost of living is high

The Bottom Line

  • New York is a melting pot of different cultures and NYU Law reflects this reality through an admissions process that pays extra attention to groups under-represented in the legal profession. The school encourages these students to seek public interest careers and backs up their efforts with a robust Loan Repayment Assistance Program.
