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