suffolk $$$$ vs Roger Williams $$$$ vs Temple $$

Postby lovethelaw88 » Mon Mar 22, 2010 12:06 pm

The title is pretty self explanatory. Got a full ride to Roger Williams, 40k per year to Suffolk. Also got 12k per year to Temple. I love Boston and would't mind practicing here. Also, I want to practice family law or be a juvenile defender. Where would you go?

What conditions are attached to each scholarship package?

At Suffolk I need to keep a 3.0. At Roger Williams I need to stay in the top third of the class. At Temple I need to keep a 2.6.

Temple based on scholly stips at the other 2 schools. I'm pretty sure Temple's median GPA isn't anywhere near that low.

Tend to agree. I, personally, would attend Temple over either school.

If you want to practice in Boston, Suffolk is the place to be and 40K a year is pretty much full tuition.. I am dead jealous...

I work at a firm in Boston. If you want to practice in Boston, Suffolk is worth it. 90% of atts in my firm graduated from Suffolk and are very sucessful.

I dont want to be in Boston so if it was me I'd do Temple...I attended there open house and loved it...I am also battling with the choice with more $$ from other schools.

You would advise someone, under any scenario, to attend a costly festering TTTT with a grade stip that will require him to land in the top 3rd as opposed to attending a far better school with slightly less money but a much more favorable grade stipulation?

I'm not sure how you sleep at night.

What is the median at Suffolk?
If not for the condition I think it'd be the best choice given the OP's goals.
However....if you lose that scholly you're paying a fortune for a TTTT school....
