Also, does anyone know if Seton Hall is considered overall to be a decent law school for a NY dude like myself?



Seton Hall is more expensive that Rutgers. Plus its easier to get in state tuition at Rutgers so that will narrow the costs down. Once you are out of the top 14, all schools are regional. That being said, go to the one that you like, and is the most financially sound decision for you. If you can pay for Law school without loans, or arent worried about money, then go to whatever one you want. Since many people are not in that position, being able to finance law school, and being debt aware, and finacnially smart about your choices is almost as important as the school you go to. If you are 200k in the hole, it will be much more difficult to be able to pay off the loans( you need a high paying job, which are hard to come by) than if you were 150k, 100k, or less than 100k in debt. this is assuming of course, that you dont want to live at home until you are 40, and want to be able to have a place of your own, be able to save some money, and make future purcahses.

In. 35k. Certainly helps, but with such high tuition I think I'll be withdrawing this week

I went under review 12/17 so I am hitting the 6 week mark today. No word yet. Staying optimistic- haven't been denied admission yet at least.
Have a great weekend everyone

Ah, how frustrating. Any updates? When did you go complete or rather under review if you do not mind me asking.

Is this typical? I thought that the status checker revealed the decision.

Not always. I have a status checker that didnt even change to "decision rendered" until I got a letter in the mail. It still just says that even though I'm accepted.

I think it varies form person to person. I'm pretty sure mine went straight form under review to admitted though.

In via status checker this morning. Went complete on 12/22/2010 and it now says decision rendered 02/02/2010, but I checked around 11pm last night and there was no info.
Now though, I have a congratulations message telling me to look for a packet by the end of next week.
