Richmond ($) vs. Temple (Sticker)

Postby dshirs32 » Sat May 01, 2010 10:58 am

Hey everyone, up until this past week I was pretty dead set on attending University of Richmond in the Fall. I am from VA, received a nice scholarship, and I really love the school itself. However, I am starting to question whether or not I want to begin my legal career in VA. I have no visited Temple yet, but I am very interested in attending. They didn't offer me any money but that is not an issue. I have always wanted to live in a big city and practice law so Temple certainly would provide that. Just looking for some advice / insight into what people think about the two schools. I know that Temple fares very well in Philly so that is certainly promising.

Philly does not have the big city feel that say DC or NY gives me. You should visit before making any decisions.

I checked out both schools. Philly does seem like a pretty neat city, if more of a city is what you are looking for. Everyone I spoke with from PA thinks quite highly of Temple and it is well-known for the kindness of the students who attend and public interest. I believe they have better job placement there than Richmond does in it's area, if the stats are still the same.
Let me know if you have any specific questions, as I visited and highly considered attending both. I think if you are from VA and ready for an adventure in a new place for law school, it would be a great idea to move to PA and attend Temple.
