Temple ($) vs Seton Hall ($$$)

Postby paul7lee » Fri Apr 01, 2011 6:00 pm

I like both schools, both are ranked 61 by USNews, and both will allow me to practice in the NY/NJ/PA area. However, I really love Temple's Trial Advocacy program and the fact that it's #2 this year and perennially in the top 5 or so is very attractive. It seems that the amount of practical experience leaving Temple won't be matched by SHU, though I know SHU has clinics and I will still gain real world experience. Temple also gave me $10K (up from $7500). I'll be paying out-of-state.

However, Seton Hall originally offered me a $35K scholly and after asking for a reconsideration, I was asked to apply for a distinguished scholar program which would give me a full-ride and be privy to special trips/programs. I understand that for both schools I have to be in a certain % of my class but I'm okay with this stipulation.

I've gotten the "it" feeling from both schools but right now I'm considering what is more valuable to me: Temple's litigation program or SHU's full-ride.

What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Seton Hall will give you a fleeting chance at New York, but you are more likely to end up in North Jersey. Temple will keep you confined to the greater Philadelphia area (which includes parts of Northern Delaware and South Jersey).

If Seton Hall was fullride and no stips (or at the very worst median stips) it may be better than Temple if you're cool with practicing in Jersey. Otherwise I take Temple.
