Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Suffolk vs. Marquette....discuss

I have decided not to accept the Suffolk offer of admission for many of the reasons you guys mentioned.  I definately agree with your point about cost cultural_vacuum.  I was not offerred any money at either school, so cost of attendance is definately an issue.  More than anything though, I am just not going to travel across country for a worse school.  Now if I get off the of the Miami, Case, or American waitlists it is a different story.

What do you think about moving for those schools?

I agree with most of what you guys are saying.  I do want to get out of Wisconsin, but I only want to leave if I have a good reason to do so.  So far I just don't see Suffolk as enough of a draw for me to pick up and move across the country. 

On the other hand Boston is one of my favorite US cities, and the facilities at Suffolk are worlds above those at Marquette.

Anybody else with input?

Hi guys,

I just was informed by Suffolk that I was admitted off of the waitlist.  What do you think of the school, and how does it compare to Marquette?  Would it be worth moving from Wisconsin to go to Suffolk?  Is it more, or less regional/local than Marquette?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated as I make this difficult decision.

sounded weird to me to, but that is what the woman said.

I called the office of admissions and asked about the expected activity level this year.  The woman said that a couple of applicants have been let in, but she doubts there will be very many, if any, more.  She also said that this year is the first year in the last five where they have gone to the waitlist.

wow, thank you so much Chapman1L.  Those were very helpful comments.  Couple of things if you dont mind:

How's the parking situation?
Where do most of you guys live, and how much do you pay in rent?

Can you expand a little bit on your experiences as an  undergraduate at Chapman, and why you are so down on it.  Also, why do you say the law school is different.  How long ago did you attend etc...

- Founded in the 1990's
- Fastest school ever to receive ABA accreditation. 
- #3 for "quality of life" (Princeton Review 159). 
- #8 for "professors rock". 
- Student LSAT scores are in the upper 1/3 of all ABA law schools.
- Undergraduate average SAT has increased for 14 years straight (now over    1200).
- $24 million dollar new building

Also, everything I can find about the school is positive. 

Should I ignore all of that because it's a tier 4 at the moment?  Where do YOU see Chapman going?

Comedy...I am admitted to Syracuse and Chapman as well.  I didn't really like Syracuse when I visited there this week.  I am trying to figure out whether I should make a visit to Chapman at all.  I am worried that I will like the place a lot, which will put me in the tough spot of deciding whether I will go to a low ranked school for location reasons.
