1) is the school still in process of revamping their legal writing program? I think I read something about that some pages ago in this thread. Will it be graded for the incoming class?
I really have no idea. They're still changing stuff but I've heard no word if grading it was a part of the process.

The Wharton Certificate isn't new, but they did add a more law school-centric certificate in addition to our currently existing Business Economics and Public Policy Wharton Certificate (BEPP). The new stuff has almost all law students (maybe all law students? I haven't taken it personally), whereas the old program was just a great opportunity for law students to easily take classes at the best business school in the country. I prefer the traditional certificate, because I have a math background and I enjoy taking classes with business students.

Thanks again guys!
Doesn't matter. Maybe set aside a few hours before/after ASW to meet with some places. I had a friend who lived in Philly look at places for me and make suggestions, and I locked in a lease from afar.
