Widener U School of Law / Re: Apartments in Harrisburg
« on: April 30, 2007, 07:28:55 PM »
Will be starting in the Fall.  Anyone know of any cheap apartments in the Harrisburg area?  Anyone looking for a roomate?

Literally up the block from school are some very nice apartments. I forget the name of them, but they are straight up the block on Vartan Way. Rent for a 2 bedroom apartment was something like 600 bucks. 300 a month with a roomie in a very nice place doesn't sound too bad to me! AND it is rent controlled for law students! :)

Widener U School of Law / Re: Class of 2010?

I've seen both campuses and attended TAP at Harrisburg last summer and was accepted and reapplied this year and was accepted regularly to Harrisburg. Wilmington is more "urban" (if you can even call it that) than Harrisburg, by far. However, being that I'm a Jersey girl, I really have no desire to practice in the middle of PA.


Tough calling Wilmington Delaware a rural or country town. (If you were attending the DE campus)
Its a city itself, 30 minutes from Philly, 1.25 hours from Baltimore, Wilmington is actually quite urban. Widener is in a suburban strip mall area though.

I'll be attending Widener this Fall...did you get your decision?

Yeah, I got accepted a while ago. Just decided the other day after posting in this thread that I will not be attending though, lol. Opted to not be a country bumpkin and stay in the NYC area. :)

I am going to the Harrisburg Campus as well.  However, I misplaced my acceptance letter.  Do you know which 3 classes will be involved?  I'd like to get a head start on this thing. 

I did TAP last summer at the Harrisburg campus and was accepted for regular admission. :) The three classes I took were Torts, Legal Writing, and Remedies. I made friends with some older 2Ls who had done TAP previously and heard that Remedies was tossed in for the hell of it that summer, and that usually Contracts is taught instead. There's really no way to get a head start - just be prepared for the first Torts class if you've got Lee. :p He's a great professor but he really grills you.

More than 100 views and no one has anything to say? I would really appreciate your help and opinions. Seriously. :(

This is my first post on the boards, but I've been lurking for like... months.  :P

Anyway, I've been accepted to Barry, Touro and Widener so far. Waitlisted at Capital. Accepted into Appalachian's PASO program (which makes no sense, since I've already been accepted to "better" schools than Appalachian). I'm still waiting to hear from WNEC, Roger Williams and Albany (sort of a reach, but I'd love to get in).  :)

Anyone have any insight as to Touro vs. Widener?

I'd appreciate any help I can get.

Sorry - this is all second hand knowledge...

A friend of mine went to Widener because of their health law program/certificate. She really loved it.

Another friend that attends Seton Hall with a transfer from Touro. He was very unhappy there, said the environment was cutthroat because people wanted to transfer out.

Take it all with a grain of salt, visit if you can, and good luck :)

I'd also be attending Widener for the Health Law program, but with the hopes of transferring out. Two of my friends went there for 1L and later transferred to St. Johns and Dickinson. I can imagine people want to transfer out of Touro, too.

Albany's OK if you want Albany midlaw or state politics. I won't comment on the rest.

If you could, it would be really helpful to me. I don't care if you have negative things to say because I really would like to make an informed decision when I choose which school to attend.

Accepted at Touro: I've heard some good things about this school, mostly positive due to their recent move to a new campus with nicer facilities.

Accepted at Widener: I attended the TAP Program last year at Widener and was accepted. I did not go because I was having major medical hardships and reapplied this year and was accepted regularly. I know the ins and outs of the Harrisburg campus, which is where I was accepted this time around -- what can people tell me about the school's reputation, etc.?

Waiting on Albany: I don't really know too much about this school other than if I want a job in the Albany area, it will be easy to find one. I hear it is a decent school.

Waiting on Roger Williams: I have heard nothing but terrible things about RWLaw. I applied because I think it's in a beautiful area and my cousin went to RW for undergrad. Is it really as horrible as people make it out to be?

Waiting on WNEC: I know next to nothing about this school. Help me out!
