Nova is a respectable school to attend, especially if you can get some money from them. If you want to attend Nova, this is part of the poison and I promise is only continues when you attend law school (especially grades from Nova). Good luck to all applicants, think long and hard about this investment and whether getting upset about waiting a bit for a decision is worth it in the long run. Enjoy this year and the lack of law school stresses.



Villanova sucks. End of story.


Ah, a highly intelligent response :roll:

haha what do you expect? what you said was patronizing. and i've waited to hear back about grades, court decisions on motions, and life decisions in general that i have no control over, and i can say with confidence that none of these are as bad as waiting to hear back from law schools.

This is false. Temple will both get you farther in Philadelphia and is much, much closer to the good parts of town.

They call it Vanillanofun for a reason.

They have earned the hate by having done such a shitty job with admissions. FTR, I know one chick who went to Nova and she "hated' it.

Well I certainly did not mean to patronize anyone. Obviously waiting for a response is stressful, however it is one of the lesser stresses that goes along with law school, and a career on law in general, that was my point. Good luck with the remainder of your cycle.

You're taking everyone too seriously. This was created so we could all bitch about schools.

Edit:

I emailed VLS specifically telling them that I was in a dilemma between a similarly ranked school and that school gave me $$$. Also that I would pick VLS but $$$ was being factor. Then, a few hours later the school e-mailed me saying I got 15k.

Word.

I sent them a negotiation email 10 days ago asking for more money. They gave me 15k/yr and I know I shouldn't be complaining too much but I've gotten full rides and better offers at higher ranked and peer schools. They still haven't gotten back to me and I emailed again today. Hopefully they get back to me soon but if they don't I'm withdrawing b/c Nova doesn't appeal to me enough to pay more.

why are you even considering Nova if higher ranked schools gave you more money? are you just particularly interested in Philly and the surrounding area?

I'm from the northeast and the schools that gave me better offers are midwest and south. I'd prefer to be closer to home.
