Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Schools who suck at giving visits

I thought my visit to Seton Hall was excellent, as was Villanova (even though the new law building is still under construction you can tell it will be nice.) Rutgers was underwhelming, but a random student did notice my father and I in tourist mode and came over to offer some advice, so the student was better than the admissions person who showed me around. I use the term "showed me around" loosely, as she pretty much stood in one spot and pointed in the direction of everything she thought I should explore on my own.

Rutgers offers in state tuition immediately if you sign a 12 month lease in NJ.

Can you show me this on their website?  I've heard of this (specifically about the Newark campus) but I cannot find anything on their website about Camden OR Newark.

I didn't see it on the website either, and had no idea about it before my visit, but I just visited Rutgers Newark 2 days ago and the lady from admissions who gave me the tour told me about it.

I think I'd be able to get by on only 100K/year starting out.

Definitely depends on the state/school. For example, Rutgers gives in state tuition for anyone who has a 12 month lease signed in NJ by July 1 before your first year, but from what I can tell that's a pretty good offer.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Some Choices

Yes I live in PA, and Temple is my first choice but I have to proceed as if I'm not going there and decide on Plan B, then hope for the best w/ Temple. At this point I've pretty much ruled out Seton Hall and St. John's just because of the price.

Where should I go next fall? / Some Choices

I've been accepted to Villanova, Penn State (not to be confused with Penn), Rutgers Newark, Seton Hall, and St. John's. Temple put me on the wait list, and I'm still waiting to hear back from Pittsburgh. Penn state offered me a scholarship for 1/2 tuition, and Rutgers gives in state tuition for anyone who signs a 12 month lease in NJ by July, so it's about 6K more the PSU. All the rest would cost me twice as much as PSU. Anyone have any thoughts on any of these schools?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: NESL or Suffolk?

As far as I can tell Suffolk is much better. Higher avg. starting salary by about 15K, higher employment rate, higher bar passage rate. And according to the Cooley rankings Suffolk is #35 overall this year.

It might be worth a little extra money upfront to go to Suffolk.
