Has anyone selected their courses yet? 

I am in process of selecting courses. How many classes or credit hours are you guys signing up for? I think the school website says between 12-16 credits a semester.

Can you still get into the dorm? I thought the lottery process was already over.

Did everyone find housing yet? I'm looking at few options near the school.  How's Navy Yards Metro area? I know the Nationals Field is there and it's going through a major overhaul, but I was told it might be little too early to move in there (in terms of things to do around the area).  Is Columbia Heights safe? I know the area got considerably safe over the years, but I am still uncertain about the safety.

And how is everyone doing their searches for the housing? It's hard to search primarily on online.

Do any of you guys know anything about housing there? I know it's pretty expensive in D.C. area.  I am looking to live fairly close by to school and pay around $1K/month or less for a studio or 1-bedroom.

Any help is appreciated.

Job Search / Re: Judicial Internship at District Court or RA?

Thanks for all the replies, guys.  I have decided to work 4 days a week for a judge, and fit in 15 hours a week (Friday + weekend or week nights).  I would have preferred not working on weekends, but I think working for both a judge and a professor would open up more opportunities for me.

Good luck to all of you who is still finishing up the finals, and good luck on your summer jobs!

I am currently a 1L at Seton Hall, and I got in through the LEO program also.  The program used to be conditional acceptance to the law school, but not anymore.  As long as you show up in those two-weeks, you will start school in the fall, as a part-time.  During the two weeks, you probably would go over two of the 1L courses, and do some seminars and workshops that will prepare you for law school life.  I don't know how much the program itself helped, but I became close friends with many of the people who also attended LEO program.  Some people I know is going to transfer to a full-time program in 2L, and some will continue to stay as a part-timer.

If you have any questions about the school or the LEO program, you could ask me, and I'll try to answer as best as I can.

Job Search / Judicial Internship at District Court or RA?

I was initially going to work both as a part-time, but the judge is requiring me to work at least 4 days a week.  So, it seems like I would need to choose between the two.

I have a judicial internship lined up at District Court of N.J., and also a research assistant position with a professor who is going to do research on corporate/employment law.  Corporate law is where I want to go into eventually.

Do I take the judicial internship or RA? Would it make such a big difference when I try to interview for a 2L summer job?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Seton Hall vs. Albany

I am also admitted to PT Day program at Seton Hall.  I'm told that PT Day students will take courses with FT students.  Of course, since it's PT, you will end up taking two less core courses than FT at the end of first year.  During summer, you can take courses up to 6 credit hours (but not core courses).  You will have 28 credit hours while FT will have 30.  If you wish, you can transfer to a FT program starting 2nd year.  I think this past year, the requirement was something like 2.8 GPA.

I am also contemplating transferring to another school after first year.  Do any of you guys know about transferring to another school from PT program? I know Georgetown accepts both FT and PT transfers, but it'll be a long shot.  I think most schools require you to complete first-year curriculum before applying for transfer... Being in SLU accelerated program will make sure I finish first-year curriculum after summer session.  I am not so sure about SHU.  Anybody know?

Between St. Louis and NYC/NJ, I prefer NYC/NJ.

Choosing the Right Law School / Seton Hall PT v. SLU PT
« on: June 16, 2008, 02:02:36 PM »
I just got a call from SLU to notify me that I got off their waitlist.  But, they are putting me in what they called Accelerated Part-Time Program.  I'll be in PT for a year, take 1 summer course, then put into FT for 2nd and 3rd year.

Seton Hall is ranking much higher than SLU.  Seton Hall's ranking's been going up, while SLU fell this year.  Both are good at Health Law.  I have borderline interest in that field.  My first choice is to work in-house somewhere in Corporate, Tax, M&A, or Contract law.

I imagine the choice would probably come down to where I wanna work after I graduate.  But, just wanted to hear other people's thoughts about it before making any decision.  (FYI, I already paid 2 deposits at Seton Hall).
