Has anyone else here decided on Temple Law for this fall??   :)

Financial Aid / Accepting Financial Aid Package
« on: March 27, 2008, 11:42:59 AM »
I posted this on the app board but perhaps it is more appropriate here?

Basically my question is this:  What happens if you accept financial aid (meaning Stafford loans) from a school and then subsequently get accepted to a school you would prefer to go to that you weren't expecting?  If you withdraw from the first school, will this jeopardize your ability to get federal loans from another school?

Help?   ???

Law School Admissions / Waitlist Issues
« on: March 26, 2008, 07:42:21 AM »
Hey guys- anyone know a lot about financial aid?

If you decide to attend one school, accept the financial aid (meaning the Stafford loans) and then subsequently get off the waitlist at (or get a relatively late acceptance to) another school, are you still eligible for those Stafford loans at the new school?  How does financial aid work in that situation?  (I am referring only to gov't loans, not private loans or scholarship money.)

Law School Admissions / Brooklyn $$$

Does anyone know when Brooklyn starts making scholarship offers?

Choosing the Right Law School / University of Iowa
« on: March 06, 2008, 12:07:27 PM »
I had basically crossed Iowa off my list at this point due to financial constraints (and distance from home) but they just informed me today that I was offered a full tuition fellowship!

I really don't know what to do now.    :o

Does anyone have any thoughts/knowledge about this?

Law School Admissions / Iowa Fellowship

Did anyone get a letter about a University of Iowa Fellowship today?

Law School Admissions / Financial Aid - dumb questions
« on: March 04, 2008, 08:19:34 AM »
Anyone here good with financial aid questions?

Basically I got my package from the school I will be attending, and once scholarship money and federal aid is factored in there is still a small difference which I presume I will need a private loan for (for example a Grad Plus loan.)  At what point do I apply for that loan?  Can I do it any time once I have passed the credit approval?

I am so completely oblivious regarding law school financial aid, and since I am not in UG anymore I have no resource center to consult.  :)  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Law School Admissions / Brooklyn NY LEO Program letter
« on: February 24, 2008, 09:00:34 PM »
Did anyone applying to Brooklyn get a letter about the New York Legal Education Opportunity Program?  I got a big package from Brooklyn that said "I am happy to inform you that the Brooklyn Law School Office of Admissions has selected you as a prospective candidate for the NY LEO Program."  It goes on to tell you how to apply for it (it's a prep course basically.)

I'm wondering if it means anything, or if it was sent to all URM applicants...

Choosing the Right Law School / Better option for NYC?
« on: February 19, 2008, 06:40:05 AM »
Hi guys, I posted this question on the Acceptances thread but it seems more people read this?

My goal is to practice in NYC.  Doesn't HAVE to be Biglaw, just NYC.  I am from NY originally and I love it here.  :)

I was accepted to SUNY Buffalo and due to the low cost for in-state tuition (and the low cost of living in Buffalo) I am strongly considering it.  However, I was also accepted to Temple and due to the scholarship money they gave me the cost is now essentially equal.  There are pluses and minuses to each, but I am wondering what the best option is if I want to work in NYC.  Temple is ranked slightly higher, and if I ultimately had to work in either Philadelphia or Buffalo I would choose Philly.  Would my odds of getting a job in NYC be better at Philly because it's closer and a little higher ranking?  Or better from Buffalo because it is still a New York school?

Strange question, I know.

Anyone have any thoughts about Temple/knowledge of its job placement?
