Where should I go next fall? / Re: Part time Maryland or Full time Drexel
« on: January 21, 2011, 11:55:09 AM »
hey, good question,

I"m a northeastern. lived in PA went undergrad at UMD.

I'd be content working anywhere between DC Baltimore or Philly. My #1 choice was Maryland. I have applied to temple, nova, and American although based on my numbers its very doubtful I'd receive $$ from those schools. Because Drexel would be so cheap I am considering.

The main question I guess was how does being a part timer affect job prospects. I have contacted Maryland and I am not eligible to switch to full time until after one year. At the time of my applications I thought part-time was my best option based on personal circumstances, although I am now coming to realize thats not so.

bottom line; will being part-time hurt my chances at biglaw jobs, wherever they may be?

Where should I go next fall? / Part time Maryland or Full time Drexel
« on: January 21, 2011, 10:07:33 AM »
I got accepted full time at drexel with a 15k per year scholarship but also got into Maryland as a part time student.

I am mainly focused on obtaining a strong internship. I know to do you you mainly need to be a full time 1L but at the same time Maryland is a vastly superior school to Drexel.

Any advice?

If I was to transfer into the full time program after one year would this catch me up as far as employment opportunities or are internships/summer employment relations mainly built after completion of the 1L?
