Good luck! I know you've been waiting forever - like me. Keep in mind I have no clue what I'm talking about. After reading back a few pages it seems like they still have a lot of deciding to do!

I was considering RU-Newark, along with a few other schools, up until today. I'm really excited about Temple; it seems to offer really strong prospects in a big market, and the cost is reasonable. I think I'll be headed there unless something really appealing comes from out of left field. Plus, my family has a house in PA, so I'm going to do everything I can to establish residency - at least for 2L onward.

Oof. I did that earlier in the cycle sending an e-mail to Columbia talking about how I sent my application in to Penn. Needless to say I'm not in at either haha

Hopefully. I got mine on 3/7, and it took them a whole month! I feel like they hated me. :x

Good luck!

Still stuck on my first complete 2/7. I called the office and they just told me that it takes 8-10 weeks so I should have a decision soon. WTF? I am going to have to send in a seat deposit to another school. This is bullshit.

Yeah, not so much. I think it is just time to admit to myself that I am staying in NYC and going to Fordham. At this point I doubt Temple is going to match my aid anyway and I believe my job prospects are better going to Fordham. I just really wanted out of NYC.

I am going to assume you have not spent the last 13 years in NYC. Trust me, it looks better from the outside than it really is. The first year or so is pretty fun, but it goes downhill pretty quickly.

I've lived here all my life. I was born within walking distance of Fordham Law. What can I say, I like the place!

i feel really bad for parents with young kids in nyc. i had to take tests just to get into junior high and high school, which really sucked since i didn't know what school i would ultimately get into. now second graders are experiencing the same angst with this crazy charter school lottery system.

If you live in Center city, and change your car registration to Philadelphia, you can apply for a residential parking pass, and park on the city streets (at metered spots) with the parking pass. I got mine and it was $65 for the first year, and I think $45 for every year after that. So not bad at all. To get the pass you need your lease, an update license with your new address, and a copy of your car registration registered to you new address.

You will probably never drive you car to Temple. No need with your location in CC. Take the broad street line to temple (Cecil B. Moore) (10 min train ride nice safe subway). The last train on weekdays from Cecil B. to CC is typically between midnight and 12:30.

buy the tokens $1.50 each, don't get the pass, don't get the cards. Its a waste of money, even the Temple reduced cost one. Do the math, you'll see buying the tokens costs so much less in the long run.
