Temple. I go to temple. Professor Ohlbaum wrote the PA rules of evidence. We have great trial attorneys. There is a reason our trial ad section is ranked up there. In fact, I'm in a lecture right now :)

Current Law Students / Re: E&E - Old Editions?

The old editions for torts and Contracts is probably fine. However, while I am a fan of E&E, the criminal law E&E by Singer is not very useful in my opinion. I would get an alternative.

Hey, I'm not sure of the exact address but it's on Ridge St and it's apparently bordering the very southern tip of the Manayunk area.  According to the real estate agent it's a nice area, but we are thinking of flying into Philly in the next few weeks to see it if the owners are interested in our offer.

That tax thing kind of sucks but I don't think we would want to move much further from the city and I'm not sure which areas would not have that tax that would be such an easy commute.

Thanks so much for your help!

Danielle,

   Another thing you might want to consider before you buy a house in the city. Besides the wage tax, this year there will be a "reassessment" of Real estate taxes. What this means is that many properties in the city will have significant increases in their taxes.

Here is a link to one of the organizations who is advocating this corrupt idea:
<http://www.philadelphiaforward.org/citywide_reassessment>

 If you scroll down, you will see a map of Philadelphia and the areas which are currently "undertaxed" and those which have been "overtaxed." The Board of Revision of Taxes will be assessing the properties at full value and it is up to city council to reduce the tax rates so as to not hit home owners with a significant increase. Considering how corrupt and inept this city council is, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people get screwed this year. So my suggestion is to think long and hard about buying in the city. You could always buy a little outside the cit and get a nicer area.

Well I'm from Northeast Philadelphia and thats where I will be residing. I'll be commuting on the regional rails. I personally don't recommend that people live near campus. However, Center City is an ideal location.

Hi guys,

    This is Penndude7 from the prelaw board. I have submitted my deposit to Temple and will be attending in the Fall. I wanted to jumpstart discussions and acquaintences among other admitted and attending (as well as undecided) applicants. We can discuss what we like and look forward to at Temple. We can also discuss our backgrounds.

I'm a 2005 UPENN graduate with dual degrees in Biology and Political Science. I have worked in neuroscience research for almost 2 years and am interested in potentially doing IP. I'm a first generation American with parents of Russian-Jewish descent. I'm excited about the trial advocacy program and the general reputation of Temple in the Philly region. Looking forward to meeting my future clasmates ;D
