Current Law Students / Villanova v. Rutgers-Camden
« on: March 24, 2005, 12:02:04 PM »
I've thrown this out on the other boards without really getting any insightful responses.  My choice has come down to Villanova and Rutgers-Camden.  Any of you have any input on how these two schools stack up against eachother?

It appears that Villanova does better with placement in Philladelphia, while Rutgers-Camden does better in South Jersey (no surprise there).

I have spent time on campus at both schools. I already have my leanings. but I was just curious to see if there is any more useful input to be gleaned from this board.

I appreciate any thoughts.

I've been away from this site for a while. I'm glad to see this Villanova thread. I've only glanced at the Orientation assignment. But it doesn't look like anything to strenuous. 

I clocked my drive to school (from Media), and it's just a sgade under 20 minutes. Not ideal, but I am living with partents, so the price is right.

I'm definitely interested in having a drink with you guys before orientation. Maybe the week before? Manyunk works fine for me. Center City would also work for me. I'll try to stay a little in touch with this site to catch this if it does come together.

Wow. Nice list. When are you planning to pick a place?

Go to Brooklyn.  You would have your own Beastie Boy theme song for life.

No one sings about the Mainline.


It's hard to argue with this line of reasoning.

I got a phone call from BLS a while back that was similar. They wanted to guage my interest in their PT Day program. They made it clear that it was not a formal offer, but if I told them I would definitely come, they would make the offer.

I thought about it and declined to show interest. It just wasn't a good enough deal to leave a FT program in a place where I want to be. And even though I may be able to transfer to the FT program at BLS, it was not a certainty. I decided not to trade certainty for uncertainty, especially without improving any other aspect of the deal (money, job prospects, etc.)

The bottom line is, do you want to be in Philly or NYC 1) for the next 3 years, and 2) for the first few years after law school?

What can I say? I write how I talk. I didn't really put any thought into what tense I was using.

Is it possible this is a serious post? I'm not sure which would make it funnier: if it were serious or if it weren't.

Hi all!
I wasn't sure if I should be posting things in the Villanova section of the "Students & Graduates" board or here...  I already posted something regarding apartment hunting, cuz I'm not sure if it's worth living alone for around $1000/mo. or living with a roommate for half the price.  What do you guys think?   :)

I'm going to give you the lame old "it depends," answer. If you would find it distracting to have to deal with a roommate, then I think the extra money spent to live on your own for the first year is well worth it. It's such an important year that it would be a shame to have it derailed by a stupid personality clash with some random roommate.  On the other hand, if you think you would benefit from having a roommate to hang out with when you are at home relaxing, than maybe that is the way to go.

I think extra money spent on making your first year successful is money very well spent.

Great.  Well, I'm Michelle and I'm from Delaware.  It's very nice to meet you.  I think today is the first day that I'm sure that I'll be going to 'Nova. 

Nice feeling, isn't it? 

If anyone is going to be in Philly over the summer, it might be fun to get a group together for a drink before orientation starts. It's always nice to know a couple already of people on the first day.

It's nice to see some people finally talking about Villanova.  I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone else out there.  Where is everyone moving from?  How different is the area from your hometown?  What made you choose 'Nova?  Just curious.  Looking for some activity on the Villanova posts...

I grew up in Center City. But I've been living in DC for the last 3 years. This will be the first time in my life I have lived in the suburbs (living at my Dad's house in Media).  

'Nova places very well in Philadelphia, which was one of my main criteria for law schools.
