Nice, congrats! I'm waiting just as anxiously with you! I'm hoping to get mine tomorrow.

Still haven't gotten mine, womp womp.


Are you far away? What day did you get in?

Not that far and the 6th. I sent an email but they haven't responded. Might call today if I don't get it.

How safe is the area around campus? Are grads getting jobs that require a JD?


The downtown area is generally very safe.

Seton hall does a pretty good job with employment compared to other schools in the same tier. If you want biglaw, you have to be in the top 15% to really have a chance. But most NJ firms hire students who have completed a judicial clerkship. Employent opportunities are decent but I would try to get a substantial scholarship to reduce the risk of not getting a job that can allow you to pay back debt.

Probably shouldn't be allowed in if you can't find the status checker. Just kidding!

Anyone had any luck negotiating more $$$? I was offered half, but i would really like more money, and I REALLY liked the school after attending the first ASD

I sent an email requesting a "reevaluation" of my situation and also filled out the FASFA which puts you in for the rest of their scholarships. They said I would hear back in March.

I'm real tempted to do the same, but I'm still waiting to hear from wake forest, temple, rutgers, and Boston college, and I feel like BC and WF could be good bargaining chips.

In via status checker on 12/16 due to USPS hating me I didn't get my packet until last week. 25,000 a year renewable all three years. I don't remember the stips but I can look if anyone is curious.

Hey all! Congrats on everyone admitted! I was curious how long you were under review? I've been since 1/28, longer than I thought it would take...submitted early Jan.

It took me a little over a month from submit to decision, and that was back when the volume of applicants was pretty low, so I think you have a little bit longer to wait.

Yes. You will have to write a letter for an appeal regarding your scholarship award. They look over the appeals in very early March.
