Should I go to Temple?

(1/2) > >>

guatibiri:
I am deciding between Temple and Brooklyn Law.  Temple gave me a full scholarship and Brooklyn gave me 23k and loans.  What do you guys think of Temple, specifically in terms of getting NY jobs and international law opportunities?  Is Trial Advocacy and Legal Writing really that good?  How are Temple alumni?  What is the atmosphere of the school?

Temple is a good school, and you can't beat free tuition. I can't speak as to Brooklyn Law, but at Temple you could always lose your scholarship, if you're not in the top xx% of your class (I know you don't want to think about that, but Temple is very competitive, and they've got some smarties.  Temple is pretty regional, but they do have "on campus recruiting" day with New York jobs.  That said, if you're sure you want to end up in New York, go to school in New York (if it's between two similarly ranked schools, as here.)

Yes, their trial advocacy and legal writing programs really are top-notch; I'd say they have the best program in the area (>Penn>Nova>Rutgers>Widener>Drexel).

You would say their entire JD program is better than Penn?  Or just the trial ad?

Their Trial Advocacy and Legal Writing is better than Penn.  They have actual professors for Legal Writing, and their trial advocacy program is generally considered to be one of the best around.
