General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Temple University 2011
« on: May 19, 2008, 09:45:15 PM »
I too have decided on Temple. I will be moving from MN and won't be coming down until mid/end of July. I was wondering if that won't be too late to start actively looking for housing? Any advice? Thanks.

Everyone,
Thank you so much for your comments and the pieces of advice. I was so upset that I needed an opportunity to vent. I feel better now and as someone said, it is just better to put this behind me especialy since I am commited to the school, and yes, I did decline the other schools before I got the award letter. However, I do feel like they could have handled it in a better fashion rather than sending me an impersonal email, especially since they had said they would call me back.
Also I want to say thank you to the person who taught me how to spell "because".
  The problem with your case is that you didn't really rely on the scholarship offer.

Yup.

Also, learn how to spell "because."  It will come in useful during law school  ;)

 WOW! That really helped me out a lot since I had no idea what the word even meant.

Temple / Re: HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH TEMPLE LAW

Thank you very much for your responses. I guess I already knew there was no real recourse for me in this situation but I was just looking for an opportunity to vent. As someone has advised me, I will just put this behind me and look forward to attending the school. The money is not that important anyway and I had already commited myself to going there before the award letter came in the mail.
I appreciate your comments.

I am really upset with the fin aid office right now. I got accepted to the school with no $ and had sent an email asking if they could re-consider. I got a message back saying there was nothing they could do and I resigned myself to that. I made up my mind about going there and having to borrow the max amount of loans for the 1st yr then I got my fin aid award letter in the mail teling me they were offering me 15,000 for the first year as a Law Faculty Scholarship. You can imgine my joy and excitement. Then I had to call them cos I had a question about completing my MPN and the rep I was speaking to suddenly told me that the scholarship was a mistake. I was shocked and I let her know that I had declined other schools that were offering me scholarships cos I really desired to go to Temple. So she said somebody would call me back later. Imagine my surprise when I got an email saying "well we made a mistake and that's that"
I am so upset cos I feel like at least they owed me a phone call to apologize and I feel like they could have at least offered me some $ for such a terrible mistake.

Has anyone ever been in this type of situation?

I feel helpless cos I feel like I can't do anything about this cos I really wouldn't want to take it a step further( and even if I did, I wouldn't know what to do) but I just think there should be some type of action I can take about this.

Any advice, anyone?

Temple / Re: Temple 2011?
« on: April 26, 2008, 05:47:29 PM »
Hey I decided on Temple as well with no $ :( It was really hard for me considering that Chicago-Kent was offering some but I knew that I would prefer to practice on the east coast and picked Temple based on that. IS anyone moving into the Philly area from "out-of-state" and when are you planning to?

« on: April 12, 2008, 11:50:53 PM »
I really need some help. I have been accepted at both Chicago-Kent with 13,000 and Temple with no $. All the scholarship does though, is bring Kent's cost of attendance down to the about the same level as Temple's. I attended Kent's ASD and I was quite impressed however, I'd rather work on the East Coast after LS than in the Mid-West. It doesn't see like I will be able to visit Temple before school starts.  I am really having a hard time making up my mind although I have mailed Temple's deposit today. Can anyone help with pros and cons for both schools?  :-\
