Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Tell me about Villanova

Thanks lawneocon, you're a fantastic help! Do you suggest one lives in the main "law school" housings/buildings? I'm looking all over, especially for roommates. In all honesty, privacy is not that important to me, I like people, I've enjoyed my college roommates and in i enjoy being around other people in general. That being said, thru roommate searches I've found people and places near the area, but I'm not sure its wise for me to live in a place that may not be inhabited by law school peers. What say you?


Radnor, Radwyn, Radcliff house tend to be the big three - Radnor allows pets on the first three floors. Home Properties of Bryn Mawr and Home Properties of Devon are also popular.

Some tips: Radnor seems to be the only typical high rise apartment building - though you're actually renting somebody's condo via a real estate agent. Don't worry, the only reason they own the apartment is to rent it out for profit.

Radcliff and Radwyn are more "garden style" apartment buildings where your door opens up directly to the outside. Radcliff forces you to use their internet/cable service, which I've heard is pretty bad (i.e. you can't use Comcast or Verizon).

Home Properties of Bryn Mawr rents to undegrads - The other places do not.

You can get good deals if you rent a room or a private apartment attached to somebody's house - Of course, it depends on what level of privacy you want.

You should be okay up until July if you want to wait to rent, but after that, the pickings get slim and you may have to live in King of Prussia or somewhere outside of the area and commute a little bit more.



What housing should law students take or usually take? Do you know if any place allows pets?

I would personally love to live within the city, but it may be a bit too much (not to mention too much fun) to handle during your first year. The Villanova Law School website under "housing" has a list of apartments and condos that are frequented by law and graduate school students. Anything in Bryn Mawr, Radnor, Wayne, King of Prussia, Conshohoken is a good location at least for a 1L. My second year, I'll probably want to move to Manyunk which is younger and more hip.

When is the second deposit due? I'm trying to get a feel for when there might be more waitlist movement. Thanks in advance!

Second deposit is not due till July 14 or around that date.

i assume youre talking about the umd status checker.  No, it means that the waitlist was ur decision.

whew! good news. Thanks. I should hear back soon from them anyways though, not expecting to get in, but who knows, just maybe I'll be able to remain a Terp.

If you're on the waitlist, and a decision has been made and you don't get a telephone call, does that mean you were not accepted?

I love Texas but me and my fiance just want to see what else is out there.  Experience 4 seasons and that sort of thing and just return in 3 to 5 years or so.  Why don't you just come back to Texas?

I'd love to go back to Texas...unfortuneately the law school gods were against it.

I'm from Houston and currently go to Texas A&M.  I've decided to go to Pitt though.  Just looking for a little bit of a culture change for a few years to get out of Texas.

I respect that of course, but why would anyone wanna get outta Texas!? I'd give my right arm to get into Texas. It will be a culture change for you, though Pittsburg really isn't northeast anymore, it has more in common with the midwest and great lake states, thats a good thing if you ask me.
