My stats got me a full ride at Seton Hall, and I'm only mediocre (tho I guess I was quasi URM because I'm bisexual, I don't think that would make a huge difference though). I am a Jersey resident, don't know if that really made a difference.


There's no renters insurance in my case, and a $250 refundable security deposit.  

I don't think that's quite what was meant. Renter's insurance isn't from the person you rent from. It's something you go to an insurance company and seek yourself. It's fairly inexpensive as well, I recommend seeing if your car insurance company does it. In my case, getting renters insurance for $25k ended up being only 15 dollars a year extra because of the discount we got for having multiple policies.

I'll second including renter's insurance- it's probably one of the most important things to get. The last thing you need is a fire to wipe your place out in the middle of 1L and be screwed for replacing it!

You people are so lucky! Temple gives us our schedules Aug 22nd, the day before class starts. -_-

If you go to Rutgers-Camden, you don't have to live in Camden. There are very nice towns right nearby. I've heard that the law campus itself is pretty safe.

Anywhere along the new River Line light rail, in fact. I know all the apartment complexes in the area as I just moved into one in Bordentown which is just a bit north, so if anyone is looking and needs help, send me a message!

So when i sign up for this service i can apply to any law school through their website?
Not any, but most. The school chooses whether or not they do the apps through them. Out of the 6 I applied to, 5 used it though, and from my research many of the other schools do choose to as well.

Definitely.  I am in Southern NJ myself.  Maybe I'll see you fighting traffic on the Ben Franklin bridge.


No way! :P I'm in Bordentown, and since they built the river line light rail, I'm taking the train... I hate to drive, no less in the city! It'll take a little longer, but at least I can get some reading done on the train. -_-

Saw you will be attending Temple - maybe I'll see you around.  Just out of curiousity, why did you decided on Temple over Pitt?


Partially location, partially program. Temple allowed me to stay in NJ, but that wasn't the deciding factor. I really want to attend temple because I'm looking to head into international corporate transactional law, particularly working with a Japanese company if I can, so I was drawn to the semester in Tokyo as well as them having an UG program there (especially with the recent accreditation!). That way I can indulge my interests in my career :P Anyway, they have a good percent heading into business work and they're still in the NY/NJ/PA area that I'd prefer to stay in.
Hope I see you around as well! :)

Don't sweat it. Just request one and have it sent without it. When I was signing up for LSAC, I forgot to include the uni where I took classes while I was in HS. I called them to ask about the TS question, they said to just have it sent without it, it will find its way to your account.

I had two W's, they didn't count against me or even get mentioned on my report, so don't sweat it. I would think only incomplete's would make their way to the page.
