I actually had an on campus session with the very nice recruiting representative from there. I was told they would look at my file and yesterday I talked on the phone with her and she told me I had been accepted.

Thanks guys
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks guys, it feels good to have an acceptance under your belt. For Drexel, I received a letter in the mail saying I was complete. Fordham I actually put complete prematurely, because I really just submitted all my things at once. However, for their non-binding early action program, the file will be deemed complete before October 15th. It is good to be done all of my apps! Let me know if you have any questions...maybe I can help :)

Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

What do you think about Drexel? I predict their IP Law program will soon be one of the better programs. Also, the co-op program sounds like a great way to study and get excellent work experience. Obviously you will have to wait and see what other offers come in, but is Drexel really a school you are considering, or did you just apply because the app is free?

Waiting on my decisions.
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Just waiting and waiting on my schools to get back to me. I actually applied to Drexel because my g/f and I are both from Philadelphia area and she is interested in moving back east. I liked the idea of going to a new school and being a trail blazer. It will be interesting to see how the school shapes out and where it is eventually ranked. Philly has a lot of great law schools in the area. I have a few friends who went to Fordham Law. They both work corporate now. New York is so much fun, I don't think I could get very much studying done there...

on your fordham acceptance! i'd rather live in NY than DC anyways ;)

Sunday, November 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the Nova acceptance today. Apparently you're the first one? No money from them?

Sunday, October 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

congrats on all the recent good news! i assume you are thinking fordham unless you get into Penn?

Nice job!
Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances! Are you planning to stay around Philly?

Nice job!

Congrats on your acceptances! Are you planning to stay around Philly?

hey man
Friday, November 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks. You're not doing too bad yourself. Sorry about Georgetown, but you seem to being doing pretty well besides that. Congrats on the scholarships, you look like you will have some good choices for next year.

Friday, November 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

I have no idea what my first choice is, way too much to hear back from, scholarships and stuff. What about you? I thought that you put that title. I thought that it was a strange title, but that you just had an eclectic personality. Apparently he's just kind of a dick.

Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on that Temple offer. That is an awesome opportunity.

Tuesday, December 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

congrats on your acceptances!!! but question: why didn't you apply to more T14 schools (i.e. why just gtown and penn)? i feel like u had a good shot!

Visit to Temple & Drexel
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Went back east for the holidays and had a great visit to the Temple, Penn, & Drexel campuses. Temple is really great for the money and the quality of education. Came away very impressed. Same for Drexel. Their new building is awesome (looking and technologically). Any preferences so far?

Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

удачи вам!

Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the condolences, but hopefully you'll have a better outcome than I did! Are you going to Temple's Accepted Student Day later this month?

Good luck to you too!
Thursday, February 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on being accepted to some great schools. Villanova is such a reach for me of course; I actually applied before my LSAT score came in since I took the February administration of the test. Otherwise, I wouldn't have wasted the application money! But good for you for getting in. :)

Friday, February 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

they called me today.

Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks and same to you! Now that Penn is not an option, I'm waffling between Drexel and Temple. My husband's possible job in SF fell through, so the CA schools will be withdrawn from soon. Villanova could become a factor depending on the financial aid, which I'll hopefully get soon. I am coming this Saturday to Temple's ASW...I really like several aspects of the school, but I am out of state in DE (by 1 mile) so the money offer at Drexel is far far superior. I had to go back to Temple even to get the 12 grand for 1 year, so I don't think there is any hope of raising that by negotiating more! I was very impressed at Drexel's ASW and the students I met are getting good summer opps. even though it is the new kid on the block. And since I'm not sure what kind of law I want to practice, the idea of no debt is tempting. It will be a hard decision!

Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yes, that was us. I think Drexel wants my husband to come now more than me! I made him come so he could help me assess things and I think he wanted to enroll! We'll both be at Temple Saturday..come introduce yourself if you can...I have no idea what you look like.

Temple vs Drexel
Sunday, March 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hi - I saw that you attended both the Temple and Drexel ASWs - unfortunately I couldn't make it to either due to a wedding, so if you get a chance, can you please let me know what made you choose Temple over Drexel? Thanks!

Why Temple...
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

I chose temple because I have a strong preference to practice in Philadelphia, and Temple fits me perfectly, with its expanding IP program and top reputation in this city. If anyone wants further details, you can IM me at "Yelin7" on AIM.

Sunday, November 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hi! Just wanted to say hello since I have decided to go to Philly and I am pretty sure I'll be attending Temple, just taking a few days to think it over. Let me know if you want to chat, see you in the fall!

Decision made!
Sunday, November 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Okay I finally decided and I will definitely see you in the fall at Temple! Hopefully I'll talk to you sometime, my IM is daisychic7.

Sunday, January 07 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM
