Hahaha I've seen in other threads that some people find it odd that others bring family, especially if they're obnoxious, over-involved family members.... but honestly... Who gives. If the school allows it, do whatever you want! I mean, when else is your family going to visit you at your school and maybe even have fun with it? And if your family is pitching in financially, then I think it's fair.

I'm going, but for everyone's sake, I'll probably be leaving the wife and kids at home. They're super-cute and all, but you don't want to be around at 3:00 if nobody gets a nap...

Was awarded $30,000 (10 each year). Asked for more money and it was increased to $45,000 (15 each year). So it's definitely worth asking


Congrats on the cash! :)
What basis did they use to offer you this amount - was it your GPA, your LSAT, other? Did they state why they offered you what they did? (Just trying to get some more info. and a better idea of what might be coming my way). Thanks!

hahaha if they don't call you guys Night Owls, then they most definitely should! Congrats on having everything work out for you!


Here's a cool fact :)
Temple (and Temple Law!) started as a night school ONLY (hence the OWLS)!

Congrats! Did you mention other offers when negotiating? I'm thinking about sending an email soon.

For what it's worth, Temple is now at #56 in the USNWR rankings -- upped two places from last year :)

5th in Legal Writing
12th in Part-Time Law
2nd in Trial Advocacy

Last year it was 12th in International Law, but they locked the stat for this year, so if anyone knows what it is, feel free to share.

PA is kind of difficult. I'm pretty sure that you can't necessarily claim residency in PA for just academic purposes. You have to be able to claim ties there and prove that you're there for reasons outside of education. Maybe if you can find a way to show them that you will stay permanently in the area?

Just so you know the intellectual property speciality is a joke. Professor Post is obviously a rock star but Temple just abolished it's Science and Technology Journal after the faculty decided there was no "interest" in the subject. Be wary Temple is not IP friendly.

Thanks for the warning!

I'm not doing IP to get into technology -- I just need the background courses in order to apply for certain programs in my field which isn't scientifically related... It's a real shame that that's happening, though.

Did anyone else receive their preliminary award letter via email today? I didn't request it, nor have I sent in my seat deposits, but they sent it to me anyways...

I'm not familiar with how this works exactly, but they awarded me loans up to the in-state cost of attendance ($42,620). I only plan on needing half of that, so how do I tell them I won't be needing everything I was (preliminarily) awarded?

I'm probably going to go to most of them, however, I think a few run concurrently to each other.. so obviously I'll go to one of the two.

And yeah, I'm also a little bummed by the lack of chatter guys!

Depends on how the day is. I definitely want to take the tour and go to the financial aid event, and free lunch is always good too!

I'm not interested in IP, so its not really relevant to me, but they kind of played it up when I visited. My student tour guide said they were changing the Science and Tech Journal's name, but he didn't know specifics yet and when it was brought up with admin they didn't know anything about it. Not trying to say you're wrong. I really don't know anything about it, just showing the response from Temple when I visited.
