Rutgers Newark vs Seton Hall vs Penn State

Postby legal-eagle » Mon Feb 03, 2014 2:59 pm

Hey future lawyers!!!

I'm new to this site and wanted to get some input from everyone!

Here's my basic info:

Seton Hall
finance and legal studies major
3.7
160

I got into RU Newark with a full scholarship, like textbooks included kinda scholarship! And I live about 30 min away so I'd probably commute from home.. (free law school whaattttt!!) .. 3.0 stip

Also got into Penn State with a $20,000 scholarship (2.75 stip) that is in the process of going up (negotiated with the dean after i got the RU scholarship and she's waiting for my fall 13 transcript before she approves an increase)

and then there's Seton Hall where I got in online and got an email that scholarship info is being mailed to my house and so i'm not sure how much that will be yet.

Which do you think would be the best school and why? I'm working on a bunch of pro-con lists and i'm still waiting for a few more schools but i don't know if I can turn down a full scholly lol. of course not going to make any decisions til i hear back from everyone else but of these 3 what do u guys think?


Also, born and raised in jersey.. i want to practice here and stay here FOREVER =)


thanks in advance for the help

u guys rock!!!

Penn State shouldn't be in the running even at equal cost for your goals. The job prospects aren't pretty from any of them, but equal class rank at Rutgers will get a job in NJ over Penn State 100% of the time. As valedictorian of Penn State you may be screwed.

Retake

3.7 is a good GPA. an increase of 6-7 points can put you in running for Cornell and provide substantial scholly's at the schools you mentioned.
