Extra Curricular Information

Lots of standard ECs in college, 2 1/2 years WE at a nonprofit since then.

Additional info & updates

12/14 - Letters from Villanova and Temple in the mail, regular-sized envelopes. Exciting to have two at once!

1/20 - Acceptance from Vanderbilt. It came in yesterday's mail, but I wasn't home to open it until today.

1/22 - Email from Rutgers-Camden, with a scholarship of a total of $21,500 over three years.

3/2 - Rejection from Penn in a regular envelope. Surprisingly, I'm not that upset about it. It means that if I stay in Philly, I have no reason not to take the money at Temple. Will be sending in my withdrawal to R-C as soon as I find the form.
Later update: 7K per year at Vandy. It's nice of them, but not enough to draw me away from my SO for three years. Unless they come up with something nice in need-based aid, it looks like Temple for me.

Congrats on Temple! I'm going to be nervous looking for my letter now since we were complete around the same time (although your numbers are better than mine.) Anyway, are you in Philadelphia? Are you in one of the Center City zip codes? I'm just curious since I'm more on the outskirts which would explain why a letter might take a bit longer to get to me. Haha, obsessive much?

congrats on Temple and Villanova. I spent the first 18 years of my life in Philly, and I'd give anything to come back! I don't think my numbers will get it done though -=[

Congratulations on your acceptances! How did you hear from Temple?

Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

I live on the Main Line, the letter from Temple was dated 12/12 so it took a couple days to get to me. Both Villanova and Temple were regular, business-sized envelopes. I'm very excited, and I feel much better now that I'm definitely going to law school next year! The $15K at Temple is per year, rounded, contingent on being in the top 1/2 of the class.

Thanks, you too...thats the plan! So you got full to temple also? Where did you go to Undergrad? I plan on staying in Philly (atleast as of right now :))

Such an awesome school at such a good price. The tuition there is unbelievably cheap and the quality of education is great. Congratulations on the full ride!

Thanks to all...

congrats on your acceptances so far! i assume your shooting for penn and if not headed to temple? i am in the same boat and wouldn't be too disapointed in heading to temple. good luck!!

Hey congrats on Vandy, Is that gonna be enough to draw you away from the city of brotherly love?

Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey my condolences on Penn. It looks like I will probably be subject to a similar fate. We will probably see each other at Temple!

Temple admit dAY

No doubt I'll be at the Temple Admit day. Its one of my top choices right now. PM me your AIM screen name on Law school discussion (I'm under the same account name there...Penndude7) 2
Monday, January 08 2007 at 07:00 PM you got some sweet scholarships! I've got a REAL tough decision coming up.

Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey congrats on finally making the decision. Looks like we will be classmates at Temple. I see there are very few people so far on LSN that submitted their temple deposit. However, I'm hoping that people who will be attending the school can get to know each other earlier than when the discussion board comes on. We need to reactivate the LSD Temple board...

Hey, thanks for your comment and well wishes. I'm way excited about Temple. Great school, great price, and it's in Philly, which is where I wanna be! Good luck and glad to meet a future classmate.

Thanks for the comment! Looking forward to meeting you and moving to Philly!
