Incoming 1Ls / Re: Villanova Class of 2010
« on: May 04, 2007, 02:34:41 PM »
im excited to go to nova in the fall and I'm also leaning towards living in Radnor House apts based on what I've read and heard. The clincher for me is that nova's name will probably carry further than Maryland's will across the northeast. I also like the idea of being in an area with a lot of younger people as I will have just graduated myself.

I'm not so sure about that. Maryland is ranked higher and I know a girl who will be working at a high paying job in NYC, they're both good schools, not exactly sure if Nova will take you farther. Also, I just gotta defend Maryland and Baltimore, Bmore is full of young recent grads. Just go up to Fed Hill, Canton or Fells Point. A lot of old CPers too. Whenever I go up there to visit its like College Park except a lot more fun.

Does anyone know how late the trains run to and from philadelphia during the weekends? (Probably a good thing to know when I can actually go out, which I assume will be once in a blue moon). I'm not too excited about starting law school, gotta admit, my undergrad life at Maryland kinda spoiled me, but I'm sure I'm not the only one and I hear good things about VLS. Side note: Hey, ilovelaw, where bouts in Texas are you from? I am very familiar with Texas, love the place. Welcome to the North East, but I should tell you right now, nothing is better than the Lone Star State.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Waitlisted @ Maryland

oh, im not assuming to go to a school off the waitlist...i just really want to go. I've heard that its not uncommon for a number of people at UMD to get in off that waitlist. I aint purchasing an apartment in Bmore by any means though.

K, so Im a student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I love Maryland, I bleed the black and gold. Maryland is my first choice by far, but I was put on the regular WL (I heard from them in December or January). I sent a LOCI. My LSAT is 160 and GPA is 3.436. I am white but my dad is a Soviet refugee and I speak 3 different languages-which i guess makes me diverse, unless thats not the "diversity" that UMD seeks to celebrate and augment. What do y'all think are my chances of getting in?

Alright, so I've seen the new rankings and I'd like to know how I should really read it. I want to stay close to my home (DC/MD), my top choice is UMD but i am on the waitlist. So I got two choices...Villanova (which has remained the same rankings wise) or Catholic which has offered me some money and went up from last year's ranking. Now, although Nova is ranked higher than Catholic, I see that only 61% of grads have jobs upon graduation as opposed to 72% of Catholic grads. The salary range for graduates is also about the same. Should I still go to Villanova or (considering I want to be in Maryland/DC area, but also get a good job with a good salary) is Catholic a better choice for me now? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Villanova for DC?

Most likely i'll be attending Nova in the fall, but I would like to come back down to MD/DC, i love it here, its my home. How did you get in touch with these alumni? and at what firms? I'd really like to know. Secondly, does anyone know the rep of Nova law students in general? I'm smart and i know law school will be tough and i gotta study hard, but I also want to have a somewhat normal life...i still want to be able to go out some weekends, drink, have fun, meet girls, etc. As far as law schools can be (which isnt much), is the place and people "fun"?
