It does depend what you want to do.. And if you are instate the tuition is realy nice at Temple, but if you hate city life go to Villanova, and if you are rich or don't mind the debt. These school are very similar, i am amazed also how many friends of mine decided to pay more money to go to villanova... they still can't explain it other than they don't like the city and are whitebread, hehe.
Mainly look for people that choose one school over the other and ask why.. but in the end, visit both school and go where you are most comfortable.. Still tough choice though
Graduating with honors from Temple is graduating without bullet wounds. It's no wonder your friends are willing to pay extra to be in a nice suburban area. That said, I have friends at Temple Law who love it.
Ehhhh i think the crime rate and rumors are overrated... Sure things can happend, but thing can happen anywhere in Philly, including your part of town!! haha
How are you final treating you?? I'm reading up on conlaw now.. It is so annoying, but worth 4 credits so I got to kick ass!! I just got this new program that actually reads my outline outloud... so i can conserve reading energy and use a different hearing sense... if your board check out the site... http://www.naturalreaders.com/
Anyway... i personally think the Villanova although is nice.. it can get boring at times but that is just surberbia for you.. They only have a couple of places to go and everything is all spread out.. I like to be in the center of things..Right now i'm in downtown indianapolis love it..
Finals are going well. Just Crim Law left and I have it in the morning (I should be done by now, but a wedding and Bat Mitzvah got in the way). Not doing the writing competition since I was already on a journal this year and was selected for the board of that journal (though I hope this isn't the wrong decision and my dangerously low prestige due to lack of Law Review doesn't pwn me at OCR).
Good luck with Con and the rest of your 1L year dude! We're almost 2Ls!
