FWIW, Temple also seems to have some programs and partnerships abroad that would be really beneficial if you're serious about international law.

the Temple ASD is definitely on the 29th?  I was accepted but haven't heard about ASD yet.

yup.. they didn't send me the info about it until a week or two after I was accepted so maybe you'll hear about it soon? Congrats on the acceptance!

Thank you for the input! I'm going to Temple's ASD 3/29 so maybe we can compare visit notes later :) Did you go for an informal visit or was it a Admitted Students type of event?

It was mostly informal, but I did go on a tour.  I liked it overall.  The neighborhood is a little lacking, but Philly's not so huge compared to, say, NYC so it's not far from the cool places.

I enjoyed my tour of Temple.  The building felt a little like a labyrinth, less windows than other schools but not too bad.  The biggest downer of the trip was that I later found out there was a shooting in the subway station a few blocks up Broad Street while I was taking my tour/sitting in on a class.

That qualifies as a HUGE downer

Yikes! Yeah it does.. I know some people who went there undergrad and they said that they were fine as long as they didn't stray in the neighborhoods around campus.

I don't know about the other two but I went to GMU undergrad and I know they have a good law school but there is a reason I didn't even apply for law school there....don't go there

I say Mason. Arlington is great. DC is at your fingertips. Highest ranked and you'll get in-state for 2 years.
