Law School Admissions / Re: Western New England v. CUNY
« on: December 15, 2006, 09:41:38 PM »
The more important question is where you would rather practice.  A degree from either school is going to be most useful, by far, in the region immediately surrounding the school.  So if you would rather be in western or central Massachusetts, then Western New England makes a lot more sense.  If you would rather be in New York City, CUNY makes more sense. 

Realize, however, that the law market in NYC is going to be a lot tougher and more crowded than other places, as grads from top schools both in NYC and all around the country flock there for the jobs. 

I would take a look at each schools employment and bar passage stats.

In at Villanova.

Anyone have thoughts on Villanova vs. Temple other than the physical locations, which I understand are about as opposite as can be :)

Law School Admissions / Re: CHIASU Law Scool Acceptance Probability?

It's also due to Chiashu's percentages being based a self-selected sample of law school applicants.  if a different mix of people applying to that school created accounts on Chiashu in 2002 than in 2005, the percentages could be entirely different without any different behavior on the school's part.

Law School Admissions / Re: Widenerů FT or PT?
« on: December 07, 2006, 01:28:06 PM »
Widener gave me a scholarship on the condition that I only go to the DE campus and only go full time, though I applied to both the full and part time programs. Most of the money will be handed out with similar strings attached, because they are trying to drive up the FT averages.  Widener's 25%ile LSAT has risen 5 points the past several years (146 to 151), while the PT one has not. FT stats count in the rankings more than PT ones do.

Also, at T4's like Widener, the competition is a lot higher once you get in that it is at some higher ranked schools, and they fail a good number of students out after the first year.  That is, the weeding out takes place after matriculation, not before admission.

The harrisburg campus is actually further from NYC than the Wilmington campus - and the DE campus has pretty easy access to the NJ Turnpike.  Most Widener grads practice in PA and DE, however.  The admission standards are slightly lower for the harrisburg campus.  The PT admission stats are also slightly lower than FT. Both campuses use the same committee. 

If you are interested in their legislative clinic, it is held at the Harrisburg campus.  Most of Widener's very good Health Law offerings are at Wilmington.  Students enrolled at either campus can take courses or clinicsb at the other, however,

If you click on "saved" next to the school's name on the Application Status page, you go to the "Submit" page for the school.  There will be a little icon next to the link to the school's application.  Clicking it will give you the option of blanking out the application.  If you do that, it will not appear in your list on the application status page.

(Edited for clarity.)
