Seems like a decent school in a nice area. Also a little less pricey than some of the other privates. What are job possibilities like for the majority of students? I keep hearing Temple is best in Philly but Villanova has similar stats.
you fine american.
I don't see why everyone makes such a big deal out of the price difference between Villanova and Temple. For out of state students, the difference is only $6K/year for a total of $18K. Just to be fair...
Is the Philly scene like NYC, where it seems to be either biglaw or $50,000?

If you are willing to bill 2200-2400 hours/year (approx 70 hrs/week in office) you can get a gutter ID job at a midsize firm for 60k.If you're top 10% at Villanova and make law review, you'll have a decent shot at biglaw. Otherwise, be prepared to work for 45-50k/year. A lot of 'Nova grads end up in doc review because they can't pay their bills otherwise.
