Choosing the Right Law School / Re: EDIT: SJU, Temple, NU, Brooklyn updates

By the way I was just looking at Wideners grading policy and it is pretty harsh.  First year students are required to be graded so that the average is 2.5-2.75.  Ouch.

I have applied to Pitt, Temple, UK, Louisville, GMU, Hofstra, and Widener.  I've been accepted to Pitt and UK in addition to Widener.  I am planning on applying for Pitt's public interest scholarship.

What sort of law do you want to practice, and are your only other considerations Temple and Pitt?

It is a big decision.  Have you visited the campus yet or sat in on a class?


Well, I have a bachelor degree in Social Work and a masters in public admin. so I am inclined to public service.  I would love to work for the DOJ, Attorney General, etc.  I really don't know exactly what I want to do because I know I will likely change my mind once I get in school.  A full scholarship would be nice in order to keep my options open and not be tied down by huge debt.  I haven't visited the campus yet but plan to in the Spring.  My main question at this point is how competitive the school is.  I would have to maintain a 3.0 to keep the scholarship.  I certainly would not choose Widener without the free ride so I want to know how hard is it to get a 3.0.

How would you interpret bar pass rate, as a reflection on the curriculum or on the students?

I agree with everything you said its so damn hard to make this kind of decision.  The reason I applied to Widener-Harrisburg is because of their public service component and location.  I guess I don't want to make a decision that will adversely effect my job prospects.  Do you know anyone going to Harrisburg?

So starting salary is only determined by school?

Well I promise you your better off than I am... hopefully youll get that accept soon, good luck.

Good luck to you, too.  How funny if we should get into some of the same schools.  Given our lists, it could almost be likely.

BTW, mine is: Temple, Villanova, U @ Buffalo, Hofstra, Pace, NYLS, Widener.



Would Widener move up in your list if you were offered a full-ride? My first and second choice are Pitt and Temple but I got a full-scholarship to Widener.  Every lawyer I talk to tells me that once you have your license and your first job it just doesn't matter where you went.  If Pitt or Temple offered me good money I would take it but it is awfully hard to turn down a free education.

my thoughts exactly (about still having no letters).  Fortunately I had two and one with a full scholarship.
