Is Drexel worth applying too?

Postby MRAJ » Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:22 pm

I recently finished applying to my list of schools, but I can't help checking back at other law schools and contemplating if I should apply to more. Either way, I was wondering if anyone had any recent information on Drexel and if it would be worth applying to? Or am I just wasting my time. It's not in any tier and so I'm very iffy on sending in an application. What are your thoughts?

Numbers dont matter....answer is NO...not a school worth attending....if numbers are good for a scholarship go elsewhere, if they are borderline this school is not even worth half tuition, prolly not even worth a full ride.

I don't disagree with you that Drexel is not worth attending. However, IF OP really wants to go to law school, cannot get full ride from any other school even T3 and T4, and just needs to get a JD from somewhere, a full ride to Drexel is a consideration.

But again, I don't disagree with you that Drexel is not worth attending.

My advice:
1. Read the NYT article on law schools.
2. Retake
3. If you must go take a plunge into the law school abyss, try to find a school that at least semi dominates its market.
