Missed a phone call from Duquesne while I was out for a friends birthday tonight... I hope it's some good news, when I called back they said the Dean of Admissions had made the call but he had left for the night.

Drexe currently has provisional accrediatation and most likely will be fully accredited by next spring.

I called the HR dept in April of my Senior year, I was told that there would be a lot of openings beginning in July, went through my 3 interviews starting in May and started my job June 30.  A lot of the bigger firms do want a 2 year commitment though, but going into my 2 years I think it was well worth it and that it really helped me decide that law school was what I want to do.

I am a paralegal at Pepper Hamilton in Philadelphia, and I did not have to get a parelegal certificate.

I work at a law firm and from what I've observed you need a have a thick skin and put up with comments that might not be what you like from others, you need to manage yourself well under stress as you may have multiple cases "heating up" at the same time, you also need to be patient with those you work with, and you need to be organized.  Being a lawyer from what I have witnessed is not just making the money and billing the hours, its also giving up a lot and working well into the night.  You have to have communication skills to speak with clients and you have to be able to stand by any decision you make.

I feel the same exact way!!!! I I still haven't heard from Duquese, Widener, or Penn State!!! ARGH!!

i'll instruct them to give my seat to you if you pay me $1000

Deal. That's one billable hr five years down the road anyway...

I hate to burst your bubble, but its more like 2 billable hours.
