I have heard different things. I think Villanova places slightly better but that could be a function of the relatively high number of Temple students who choose to go into public interest (which could also stem from the lower tuition/more generous financial aid.)
I chose Temple, but I was waitlisted at Villanova. I still would probably have chosen Temple due to financial considerations. But in absolute terms, I think the schools are pretty much equal and it's a matter of which is a better fit for you in terms of lifestyle and cost.
my biggest regret this cycle is not applying to Temple. I applied late and missed the deadline. I got into Villanova but it just wasnt for me. But I would have attended Temple in a heartbeat though. So I guess I'll cast my vote for Temple.
Lakers, will you be going to law school this fall, or are you reapplying?
