Widener's deadline isn't until May...t4 in Delaware and PA (2 campuses with different focuses)

Nope, you're not the only one....and I've heard that pretty much all the people who THINK they know change their minds after 1L anyway.

The same thing happened to me. I finally had the president of a local community service organization for which I volunteer write one. I'm sure it's not the best letter, but I didn't want to wait any longer to go complete. Whatever happened to the OP? Could you get someone to write an emergency LOR just so you can be complete?

Congrats bfree! Also congrats to scubronco and ptown!  :)

I'm with you, rudimentary! I've also heard that government jobs are best for this. Small-to-medium sized firms tend to have more regular hours than big firms, I believe. However, I think solo practitioners usually have to work nonstop at first until they build up a good client base.

Well I can't seem to find the post I was looking for, and I'm giving up now. But the gist of it was that if you want to practice anywhere in PA between Philly and Pitt, PSU is the way to go. Nationally, I can't really say. As someone who's very familiar with the Carlisle area though, I can seriously say that even a T14 school won't get you a job in the area any more easily than a Penn State Dickinson degree will. I've also heard that Penn State grads do very well in the Philly area, despite the competition. I'm not looking for BIGLAW though, so maybe I have a biased view.

Hmmm...the web site says expected occupancy 2009. I don't really mind the videoconferencing classes deal. From what I understood, no one will have to take classes that way - sounded like it was just for the more specialized higher-level classes that might only be taught at one campus each semester. I could be wrong though. I'm trying to find a post for you that I read a while back regarding finding jobs, etc...I'll post it if I find it.

bfree: I'm actually leaning towards Carlisle (for similar personal reasons). I went to the open house there in November. Is the new UP building really going to be done in 1 year? I thought it was supposed to take longer than that.

bfree: I am also looking at PSU - they're actually my top choice right now. Do you have a campus preference?

I would be complete, but I'm still waiting on one LOR. I'm pulling my hair out over it - I've repeatedly contacted this professor and she keeps saying she'll send it in, but she hasn't. I'm planning on getting an emergency back-up letter from someone else, but even if I fax it, it's probably not going to be processed until the end of next week. ACK! I've heard that some schools will review your app even if you're missing a letter - anyone know anything about this?
