Choosing the Right Law School / Living in Houston v. Philly
« on: February 29, 2008, 06:41:20 AM »
So I was rejected from UT, my top choices are either University of Houston, or Temple/Penn State.  I've lived in Texas all my life, but boyfriend's family is in PA.  Has anyone else made the move from a warm to cold area... I'm up for trying new things but am worried I will hate it, and then be stuck in PA! Opinions of living in Philly or Houston? Commuting to school?

What about life in Philly? Crime? Entertainment? Weather? I'm from Texas, considering a move to PA... it is rather intimidating!

What about living/life around the Carlisle campus?

Got my denial letter yesterday :( Really bummed... was hoping to stay in Austin and avoid moving! I had a 158/3.8, Master's degree in Legal Studies... etc etc.

I started volunteering at a law firm during undergrad, and ended up getting a part-time job as a "legal assistant" during my senior year of undergrad.  I've worked as a legal assistant with the State of Texas for 9 months now, hoping to leave in August for law school! I have seen several paralegal part time jobs, check craigslist! They make not make great money, but great experience!

Thanks for the response! I think Ill applyto SMU... worth a shot!

Thanks for the responses, and of course i'd love more responese... but that brings up one more questions... Tier 3 school in Texas (South Texas/Tech) or Tier 2 in PA (Temple/Penn State)? If cost was the same?

I'm not SURE I want to work in Texas... I just have fears of moving to the North and not liking it! And I hear Texaw bar is VERY TEXAS based. Would be hard to attend PA law school and then take the Texas Bar.

Choosing the Right Law School / Camden/Dickinson/Temple... SMU/Baylor/UH
« on: January 24, 2008, 08:35:28 AM »
I've read through the first 60 pages of these postings... I give up and I'm just asking.  I am sending out applications. Would like to attend law school in Texas or around Philly.

Have sent them out to: UT, Baylor, Houston, Penn State Dickinson, Temple...

I don't want to spend too much more money on applications. I have a 158/3.84.

Should I apply to Camden, Newark, or SMU?

I've heard Villanova too expensive, and SMU $$$. Baylor v. SMU... (I'd choose Houston over either, but prob need another school in case I dont get into Houston). Should I apply to more than Temple and Penn State? Camden/Newark/Villanova better?
