Amazing numbers! Congrats on all your early acceptances! Of those four, what is your top pick? NYU?

temple/villanova

I spent the first 18 years of my life in Philly. After a BA/MA out west, I am very eager to return. I was happy to hear from Rutgers (I expected my disastrous LSAT to result in a flood of rejection letters), but nothing would make me happier than a letter from Temple or Villanova. I'm sure you will do well wherever you go!

As excited as I am about it, I'm not 100% sure yet actually... I think there's a very good chance that I will go there, but I'm still waiting to hear from Columbia especially... if it comes down to those two it might be a much bigger decision, considering that Columbia is a lot closer to my home, family, and serious boyfriend...guess I'll just have to wait and see!

harvard!!!

Yes, I am VERY excited about Temple. I want to keep an open mind, but my decision is pretty much finalized. Congrats on Harvard! I think you'll have a tough decision to make, because I am sure Columbia will want you too!

Just curious... what sort of stuff does TStock ask?

i didn't think i would have gotten into any of my top choices, so I wasn't prepared to choose between them. This aspect is beginning to seem more stressful than all the waiting. Having gotten into such great schools, I'd imagine you are in a similar position.

Right now I am trying to decide between Temple and Maryland. I am leaning toward Temple...it is where I grew up and they have an excellent Trial Advocacy program. If I get into Villanova or American (which is doubtful), the decision will grow much more difficult. Let me know how your visits go!

this and that

Hey, congrats on all the scholarships! Are you leaning toward any school yet?

I really liked both Penn and Philly. And I like both Columbia and NYC, haha. (Although, I won't lie, I'm a bit scared of NYC!) Honestly, I'm pretty much 50/50 right now, so it's probably going to come down to my mood the day I send in my deposit.:-/ What are you thinking between HLS and NYU? I can empathize a bit with you in terms of picking the more prestigious school versus where your family is going to be. (Although, let's face it, it's hard to turn down Harvard!) Let me know what you decide!
