Drexel vs. New Hampshire vs. Saint Louis

Postby doshinator » Fri Apr 06, 2012 12:16 pm

Hi everyone, I am fairly new to the concepts that go into choosing a Law School. I was accepted into Drexel with a 15K/year scholarship, New Hampshire with a 25K/year scholarship, and Saint Louis with a 12K/year scholarship. I am interested in IP law and Patents, and possibly healthcare law. I have a bachelors in Biology from Drexel, currently working at UPenn's Cancer Center as a Research Assistant. I am not sure what I should and shouldn't be considering, but this is what I have so far, and any help is VERY much appreciated.

Drexel - co-op program, opportunity to create more IP opportunities (as discussed with the Dean), IP concentration

New Hampshire - great and established IP program and clinics, externships available

Saint Louis - Many biotech opportunities surrounding the school, possible externships in these companies, IP concentration

Stats? Can you get into Temple? Temple part-time?

Drexel will give you some exposure to IP law for sure, at least in the immediate area. However I am not sure if that will translate into a job down the road. Internship/co-op is not how law firms traditionally hire, so even working there during the term isn't necessarily getting the right foot in the door. There are also just too many ifs that you can't depend on. Paying all that money to not have the door open for you is not a good bet.

All of these are regional, expensive, poor schools. All of them are terrible at the prices we're talking here.
