From what I've heard about campus, if you are looking for something of a social life or more of a community, then the UP campus is the way to go. The other campus, apparently is more commuter. (Source: I know a few people at the UP campus, so take their word for what it is)


--LinkRemoved--

Private practice median at $70K for class of 2010.


Ah your right, TLS has some old stats, apparently.

I'd be happy if I was lucky enough to make $70k

Oh boy, my heart skipped a beat when I checked my spam folder and saw an e-mail from the Penn State Law Admissions Team. Turns out it's an advertisement or some notice about a "mock class," one of those typical "Experience ________ school of law's program this semester!"...

What a tease...

Same! I'm interested in seeing what kind of scholarship I'd get. I don't know much about PSU but it's not too far away from me. I might take a visit.

Submitted 1/16, in 1/25. May check out the school. Hopefully they send some scholarships. Anyone else find that this was a super fast turn around?

Anyone that was admitted on 1/18 receive their official acceptance/ scholarship info in the mail yet? The wait is killing me!

+1 on the torturous wait. I haven't gotten anything yet, but I live across the country. The mailing date was the 20th, so I am hoping for something by the middle of next week (or TODAY!).

Thought you guys might be interested in reviving this thread...

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=130990

It also has some great answers to questions that many of you might have. Good luck and feel free to message me if you have questions about PSU, I'm a 2L ranked in the top 10 in the class.

I just happened to take a look at the status checker page, and realized something. The text at the top of the page says "Welcome to the class of 2014!" They must be using last year's congratulatory message. Also, scholarship info should be here within a day or two!

I noticed that last week when my status changed and I emailed the admissions office and they said they are looking to fix it and they assured me that I was admitted to the class of 2015.

I have simillar numbers, been in review since 12/22 and no movement since then. Submitted the app in early December. Are you in state? Has anyone here been w/l'd or dinged yet? Starting to think it might be LOCI time.

I went under review on 11/30. I emailed them a week of so ago and got the following response, "You should hear something back from the committee within the next couple of weeks. Thank you for your patience."

I am in state. I also submitted my application in December, but my application was held because I took the Dec. LSAT. Good luck. I was happy I got in. I was expecting a rejection.

We have similar numbers, and I was recently admitted... so don't lose hope :)

Has anyone received their packet recently? Mine shows that a decision letter was mailed on the 30th, I'm hoping this is the scholarship. I was admitted on the 18th.

I'm still waiting for mine and I live in Philly. Status Checker tells me that a package was sent on the 30th as well, so I would hope that we'll get them by the end of the week.
