Widener U School of Law / Re: How was Widener TAP 2009?
« on: March 16, 2010, 06:11:18 PM »
Hi dapilamkid,

Thank you for the encouragement!  I currently reside in Philadelphia, and the drive to Widener is not far at all (25 miles).

Yes, I have a friend who attended the program a few years ago and he had good things to say about the program.  Unfortunately, he was unsuccessful because of a "D" he received in civil procedure.  He explained that there were about 200 students in his class and cliques started to form instantly.  But I don't think that forming groups or cliques is a bad thing.  In fact, it can be quite helpful to be apart of a study group, and have others to discuss the class lessons with.

As for Widener, I am planning to attend the program if I am not fully accepted into some of my top choices.  As of now, I have been "conditionally accepted" at Widener and New York Law School.  Also, I have been "waitlisted" at Drexel Law School.

For now, I am waiting patiently for a few more decisions before I pay the tuition fee.

I think you are right about not worrying too much about the previous statistics.  Although we will be challenged tremendously, I know I can successfully complete this TAP program.

Thanks for your response.

Temple / Conditional Acceptance

Does Temple offer conditional acceptances? If so, what is the condition? Is there some sort of summer program that must be attended and passed for full admission?

I was also invited to participate in TAP 2010 at the Deleware campus.

Recently, I phoned Widener to ask about the success rate of the participants and to inquire about last year's statistics.

Although, the information in the memorandum states that 1/3 to 1/4 of the students who participate go on to fall admittance, the institution informed me that of the only 17 of the 100 students who participated last year were admitted. So I don't understand the 1/3 to 1/4 statement.

Anyway, I believe I would like to attend, but don't want to feel like this is a waste of time and money. I'm certain that I can successfully complete this program, but 17 out of 100.....
