  • Mr. Wannabe Entrepreneur

    If your eyes are set on Ivy League, I wouldn’t go to NYU. Simply because it’s NOT an Ivy!

    • IIlI

      yeah all i know about nyu is the olsen twins from the full house tv show wanted to go there so they did.

  • Ms. Truthful

    im an aspiring prosecutor, and location isn’t a problem for me, except i have my heart and mind, set on an ivy league. but, i dont know the probability of me actually being able to get into one… i need to know the best ivy’s and almost-ivy’s for my case. i also dont know how likely it is, for me to get into one. i need help on which to pick. but i still need to know if i could ever get into one of the best. those are the ones im looking out for, the most.

      Prosecutors do more than seek convictions. They impanel Grand Juries who eliminate people as suspects; No-True Bill. They make recommendations and reports, as in the priest-molestation cases. They have hearts ans refer juvenile cases to mediation or private agencies to prevent the stigma of convictions. They also make society safer by providing proper penalties to those who are risks to our well being. G/L!
