Kansas/Seton Hall

dunno you tell me?  Kind of like the idea of going to a private school for LS.

yea i've already applied to those schools.  The reason i was looking at Seton Hall is because the scholarship i received from them was much more generous than the scholarship offer from Temple.  Temple is offering $12,000 NON-renewable and Seton Hall is offering $27,000/renewable.

Thanks for the replies, it does seem like commuting would cancel out all the extra money i would receive from Seton Hall.

I would definitely take the Darrow.  Still ALOT of prestige w/Michigan and the lack can prevent you from freaking out later on and deciding take a career you don't really want to do.

Thanks for the honest response.  I am pretty much set to live in Philly so this probably means i will have to look at other schools.  To bad though.

Do you think its possible to commute to Seton Hall from Philly?  I have a nice scholarship offer there but i really must live in Philly.

So i am pretty much set on living in philadelphia this fall.  However i have received a very tempting offer from Seton Hall  $27,000k/year.  I am kind of against taking it because i will not live in Newark.  However do you think it would be to much of a strain to commute?  Is it possible to take a train?  Any insight is appreciated.

I would second the recommendation that you visit before attending.  Not just because you will be spending three years in Des Moines but its likely that you will stay in the midwest after graduation.  Iowa only has two law schools and University of Iowa is clearly the superior of the two.  Because of this, chances are that you will be staying inside Iowa, if you do well you might be able to get a job in Kansas City (which is much more fun/interesting IMO).

On the plus side Drake does have a very good reputation as an undergrad which might help some.  However on the whole Des Moines is pretty boring, even by midwest standards.

Yea, i guess what makes me nervous about Drexel isn't so much the accreditation issue (i too am sure it will be accredited) but rather people who say it will be Widener Level when it does get accreditation.  Im just nervous about having a degree that is perceived as "bottom of the barrel". However the #'s of the people Drexel has been able to recruit have been pretty impressive.  It seems like they have enough money to keep throwing at people to keep them up for a while as well.  This seems like it would make it more competitive than Widener.  I will be visiting the school very soon so I will let everyone know what i think.

I still think you have a good shot.  Are you applying Full Time or Part time?

I am so stressed I have a 3.99 GPA 158 LSAT, but I wrote the SPACE statement for Temple, because of my crappy LSAT. 
i think you have a pretty good shot w/your extremely high GPA.  When did you get your apps in?
