must be nice...

Just wondering as an out of state applicant (Florida) if there is a good chunk of out of staters in your experience (beyond the bordering states)?

Additionally, is the Health Law program well-respected/utilized? It seems like a very thorough program they have, and is one of the major reasons I'm considering applying.

Thanks for any info.

Quite a few out of state/region folks. In my 1L section alone there were 3 or 4 (that I know of) from Texas, a few from Florida....I know some from Colorado, a few Californians, Georgia, Arizona, Connecticut, etc. If I had to guess I'd say 20-30 percent were form outside the region. If you're concerned about being one of the only people not native to the area, I wouldn't worry about.

I'm not in the health law program myself, but I hear good things. Every semester there seems to be a number of health-related classes offered. I believe there's also a health law clinic and health law certificate program. Also, there's a journal of Environmental & Public Health law. Pittsburgh is a very "medically oriented" town (University of Pittsburgh Medical Centers are everywhere.) In town, I'm sure the program is well respected. I don't know how it is viewed in other places.
Hope this helps.

I'm originally from out of state, as are a large percentage of my friends. Most of them are from neighboring states, but I'm from the west coast.

LOL. No offense taken! If you come from Wexford, PA you are raised with an undeserved sense that you are better than everyone else. It takes a while for the real world to beat that out of you. This whole law school application process is helping though. WL'd at W&L. I am not a beautiful and unique snowflake :D



Also being from the Wexford area (NA High School) I will agree we all have that sense about our selves...


I disagree. Did North Hills trolls start running this thread? One more comment like that and I'll get in the Audi my dad bought me and come straighten you out.


Definitely no North Hills trolls in this thread. NASH class of 1999. Plus if your Dad only drives an Audi you must have gone to Carson :wink:

Wexford was ranked 28th best place to live in the nation by Money magazine. Not Sewickley or Fox Chapel. Enjoy your old money :)

I personally prefer Mount Lebanon, but I'll probably be settling back in Philly, anyway (I say, as I write this post in the Hillman Library).
