I am having a really hard time deciding where to go in the fall. As if right now it is coming down to a decision between Temple and University of Maryland. I live in Philly now, so I will not have to relocate for Temple and I am very attracted to their trial advocacy program. They have awarded me a 5,000 scholarship for my first year only. Maryland is not offering me any money (yet) but their out of state tuition is comparable to Temple's in-state.
Drexel has awarded me a 10,000 renewable scholarship and U of Baltimore have awarded me a full tuition scholarship. While I am not going to attend either of these schools, I may use these awards as leverage with other schools.
I have also been accepted to George Mason, Lewis and Clark, and VIllanova. Waitlisted at George Washington. Still waiting to hear from Colorado, Hastings and American.
I am not 100% sure what I want to do after graduation but am leaning toward private practice- possibly something in family law, or working for a DA's office. I am not committed to any location but will most likely be on the East Coast somewhere between Philly and NC (or anywhere in-between).
Any thoughts would be very helpful and greatly appreciated!
