Postby NJcollegestudent » Fri Mar 18, 2011 4:48 pm

I will be on the campus for the next three years. Is anyone else attending the university law school?

Hi NJ,
I will also be attending Widener this fall. I was accepted to several law schools, including Michigan State, but got a full ride to Widener. I have a very good friend (JD from Temple 2001) who lives in Wilmington and urged me to apply there. According to him, and several other attorneys I know, getting a full ride trumps going to a school that is one tier higher.
I'm amazed at how opinionated the people who post here are. I looked into their class rankings from 2010 and found that all students within the top 40% earned a 2.80 GPA or higher! Therefore, those people who say the 2.80 stipulation is a setting you up for inevitably losing your scholarship must have very low expectations about their own academic abilities, and are projecting those disappointing predictions onto you.

The fact that you messed up the punctuation like that says it all

Forgetting to put a period in a sentence you're writing to criticize someone's punctuation says plenty too. Don’t you think? :lol:

the numerical value of the GPA stipulation is irrelevant when grades are handed out on a strict curve, bro.
