They underestimate cost of living?  Crap!  Give me some more loans!


Do you think it's feasable to come a few days before orientation and find a place?  Hearing all this really makes me want to check out the area and find a good place, not just take a guess and find something online.  Anyone out there have a nice place and need a roommate??

It is feadable to find a place in a few days.  Checkout the buildings in newark that are linked to the seton hall housing page.

the eleven eighty building is very nice and close to campus...you might want to look for a roomate tho!

I agree that we have to shell out the $$ if we want to be lawyers.  So $80K is about the top from Seton Hall?  That's good to know.  I was curious about realistic salaries coming out of there.  For those of you who are living in this area, are the living expenses that they figure for us pretty true to what you've seen?  What should I expect to pay for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment?

IMO, the living expenses allocated by Seton Hall are low...you can find places for the amounts they list but it might mean living in an undesireable area or having 1 or 2 roomates.

I think I'm going to be at Seton Hall, unless I get off a waiting list closer to home.  For those of you who live close or have visited, what's Newark like?  Do you know how much rent is going to be, and what areas are the best to live in?  I've never been to the area, and I'm living in Europe, so I won't be able to visit, so I need some help :)

Is anyone else freaking out about how much it costs to go here?  How are you going to manage with the $56,000 a year debt!?

Yea I am freaking out a bit...I am contacting lenders this week to try and get everything worked out...newark isn't too bad, the school is very close to newark penn station, which is a large transporation hub.  There are limited options in newark...a few nice luxury buildings that are relatively cheap and close to school...hoboken is another option, but it is not cheap...I am most likely living further south in a nj suburb...edison, madison or rahway

Ali are u a PT student? Duke so u dont intend on working at all during your first year? Did you go PT due to the fact that you can get in with a lower LSAT/GPA combo? Just asking.

No work during first semester, I have left the door open at my current job for returning p/t in the spring...applied full-time and was offered part-time admission...will you be working?

very nice financial company, why arent u planning on staying there while being in law school? they cant give u a job afterwards or u dont want to be there?

I could stay and go to school, but that would not secure me a job here.  I would love to come back and work here....from what I understand the firm only offers summer associate spots and firm position to the top 5% at SHU (and schools of approx the same ranking: Rutgers/SJU). I would rather focus on school 1L transfer to full time and have the grades to come back here.

ohhhhhhhhh hmm not 100% sure lol ur PT day so im not sure, btw i wanted to transfer into PT day but they told me that classes can be up to 5 days a week or even 4, in PT evening they are 3 nights a week for the first semester and 4 for the 2nd so i choose that as a better option for me. first year you dont choose classes anyways u are assigned via a block system; i assume to get the schedule of classes at orientation.

I hope to get the schedule sooner.  What are you up to this summer?

duke u can go to the website and see the academic calendar thats where it says that classes begin monday august 20th, regarding the laptop im just buying a dell i didnt know seton had some notebook purchasing but its toooooooooo expensive im paying like $800 for a brand new dell laptop =)

I hear you, but I haven't had the greatest experience with Dells - although I haven't bought one in quite some time.  I see classes start the 20th, but do you know when will we receive our schedules?

i received all this info in the packet for the 2nd deposit orientation for PT students (maybe even FT) is on August 16th and 17th, the 20th is the first day of classes. who else is going to PT evening? I want to get to know my classmates.

I didn't see anything re classes...I saw the academic calendar and that orientation begins aug. 16th, but what is the deal with class registation??  Anyone know?

Also - anyone planning on buying the notebook recommended on the website?  If so, I checked it out today and although it says it costs approx $1220 with the discount when you follow the link it shows a cost of $1880...anyone else notice this?
