Hey LSD'ers

I'm planning on visiting Rutgers-N, Temple, and Penn State next week.  My first stop will be at Rutgers Newark and will need to spend a night there.  I was wondering if anyone can tell me where I could find a safe hotel in New Jersey close to the school for Newark and if you personally stayed there maybe you could share the rates? 

My next stop will be in Philly for Temple, and I'll be spending a night there.  Can anyone recommend a hotel in a good neighbourhood in Philly?  I'll be spending the evening in the city, so if anyone can give me some recommendations for fun things to do in Philly it would be much apprciated.  I'm really hoping to fall in love with the city because I think Temple's a fantastic school (I'm pretty much surrendered to the fact that Newark won't blow me away so I'm hoping something about the school will jump out)

Then it's a brief stop in Penn State and then straight back home across the border. 

If you have any recommendations, please respond!

Choosing the Right Law School / Seton Hall vs. Rutgers - Newark
« on: March 29, 2008, 11:08:48 AM »
Hey everyone,

I was wondering if y'all could comment on this for me.

I've been offered 20,000 a year renewable (based on a continued 3.2 gpa) at Seton Hall law school which has jumped in the new ratings this year to 66.

I've been offered no money at Rutgers Newark but have heard from many different people that rutgers students place better than seton hall students.  Is there any merit to this claim?

Which would you go to if you were given the above choices?

Incoming 1Ls / University of Miami Law -- March 28/29

Hello fellow LSD-ers

Anyone going to Student Law Day at Miami on the 28th?  I'll be there for one--

I've gotten into these three schools and would like your opinion on which to go for.
Fortunately money is not an issue for schooling however I am most concerned with (as most people are) my career opportunities and starting salary coming out of whatever school I go to.

According to USNews:
     Miami      Rank 70     93.1 Employment     (60,000 - 110,000) 82,000 Median Starting Salary
     Temple    Rank 60     95.7 Employment     (50,000 - 115,000) 80,000 Median Starting Salary
     Penn         Rank 91     92.2 Employment     (46,500 - 100,000) 61,250 Median Starting Salary

Does anyone have anything to add to these numbers?  How trustworthy are these numbers? 
If starting salary is my largest concern, should I choose Miami Law?

I'm a Korean-Canadian student and don't really know the markets in PA and Miami and what it's like to live there so if anyone can help me clear things up that would also be great. 


the title says it all.  I could use some help getting part time cleared up.  if i go to part time and transfer into full time.  will i be disadvantaged in any way?

Hey, I'm an international student (Canada) so was wondering if any of you could help me out in knowing what the korean population is like in the following schools:

UC Hastings
University of Illinois
Seattle University
SUNY - Buffalo
Brooklyn Law School
Temple Univeristy
Seton Hall
Rutgers - Newark

I know it's a long list but any help would be great!

Any info on either of these schools would be nice.  I'm a reach for both schools but if accepted to both which should I pick?  I want to get into corporate/big firm law.  Any opinions?

Hello everyone.

I've applied to penn state dickinson school of law and was wondering if any of you had an opinion on my chances of getting in.  If anyone has some info on the school that would be awesome too.

I have a 161 on my lsat and a 3.21 gpa.  My extracurricular/work experience is better than average.  I've worked at a law firm in the summer and been involved in student/course unions at my school in executive positions (University of Toronto).   

I've also applied to seattle, syracuse, rutgers, buffalo, miami, florida, and seton hall.  If anyone has info on any of these schools or know my chances with my numbers that would be great if you could share.  Being an international student (Canadian) I only know what the books say and would value your opinions.

If there are other good schools you would recommend with my marks please let me know!


Hello.  This is my first time using the site but thought I should take advantage of it.

My CGPA is roughly 3.3 and my LSAT was 154 but I'm retaking in february.  I'm currently a senior at a canadian university.  I realize my gpa and lsat are low but I have work experience at law firms and a somewhat lengthy extra-curricular history in university.

The schools I'm applying for are:

Univeristy of Florida
University of Miami
Rutgers U - Newark
Seattle Univeristy
and Seton Hall Law

Anyone know my chances at these schools?

Also if anyone currently goes to one of these schools or knows about it, any information would be greatly helpful. 

Thank You!
