At Tier 2s what percentage of your class would need for big law? Top 10-15%

Wait List / Re: Villanova, waitlists in general
« on: April 07, 2008, 03:38:16 PM »
I just got waitlisted from Villanova as well. Really screwed up my otherwise goo mood. I think I might take a visit there in a couple weeks.

edit: I got waitlisted on the status checker, do they actually send something in the mail too?

Where should I go next fall? / Can You Have A Life in Law School?
« on: March 31, 2008, 12:48:26 AM »
Lets say your going to a Tier 2, for instance somewhere like a Rutgers. Is it still possible to have a life and still be one of the better students. Im I going to have to study 12 hours a day. I can see myself treating it like a 9 to 5 and going to work every day but I hear people acting like they pull late nights every night.

So I guess my question really is how is your life in law school? also how are your grades?

Is there time for sports? lifting? dating? fun? Im having doubts about giving up 3 years of my prime to books.

Law School Applications / Is it too Late?

I submitted an application on Feb. 28 and forget to send an extra essay in for a special program. I went complete on March 18, would they still put the essay in my file if I gave it to them?

Law School Applications / Re: Need/Merit Based Aid at a Semi-Reach

What should you expect if your ETC = 0. I filled mine out on Feb. 28 but have yet to reach any decisions. I received a lot of need based aid in undergrad and I wonder if graduate school is the same.

That depends. I have an EFC and a personal expected contribution of 0. I received great need-based offers from Harvard and Stanford, UCLA, and Vanderbilt, and crappy financial aid offers from Chicago and Michigan.

for you financial aid packages did you get about the same amount of money you got as an undergrad?

Sorry - forgot to mention the other reasons for picking Drexel.

Location, location, location. I love the fact that they're right in the middle of own of the biggest legal markets in the country, and, more specifically, they're extremely accessible by public transit. Housing and food are extremely convenient as well. Next, I wanted to be a part of something new. Drexel has made a huge commitment to this school - evidence is the $15 million building they built for the first class of students last year. Drexel is extremely dedicated to the school's success, and it just felt good to be a part of it from the beginning. Finally, they made me feel wanted, and they were interested in me personally. The admissions office is extremely active in keeping in touch with prospective students, and it doesn't stop after you're admitted.

I hope that helps!

I really LOVE the location. That is one of the biggest things for me. I could see myself living and working there for a long time.
