Congratulations folks! Thwalls, it must be such a relief to complete your application cycle.

By the way, I haven't received my letter yet. Has anybody received it?

In my situation I have to find a job as a patent agent/technical specialist for a law firm while I'm going to law school, I gots to bring home the bacon. Really wanted to go full time but I just couldn't find a way to swing the debt. And really, I've just finished my PhD and that took 5 years, so what's 4 more right?

Dude, I have Yuengling in fridge, really considering breaking it out, but I don't think it'll mix with my coffee...Baileys or amaretto anyone?

Puh-lease...I would be breaking out a cocktail, wait a margarita, right this very second. But, if you're like me, you're at work, so it's simply not a very good idea.

Yuengling, eh? You sound like a native of PA!

Yuengling is great. I <3 temple but i do not <3 the difficulties of buying beer in PA. This is a definite (small) minus for them.

Congrats to those admitted today!

bklyngreenlp, I haven't received my letter yet. But I'm on the other side of the state, so I didn't expect to yet.

Regarding scholarship money: The in-state tuition is awfully generous, so does anyone know if they give a lot of scholly money to in-staters or if it's mostly reserved for the folks paying oos? I really like Philly, but Pitt is currently cheaper and has a few more things going for it. (though $$$ > those few more things)

PS: Almost always being able to find Yuengling on draught is one of the things I love about PA. But what's with Philly's affinity for PBR?

Nope, a native would say "lager."

Has anyone who was admitted today received an email? I thought the email and status checker came at the same time, but I have not gotten an email....

My friend is a 3L at Temple now and she received a half scholarship as an in-stater.

Can't answer your question about PBR. I don't know anyone here who drinks it.

Good to know. Thanks!

I was in Philly twice this summer and PBR was the drink special at a lot of the bars we went to. I did have a delicious little carousel of microbrews at that one place that is supposedly the oldest tavern in America.

Thank you. I just opened the status checker since everyone was posting about decisions being made and it said I was admitted. I haven't gotten an email yet.

Well, Philly is a blue collar town so the PBR specials make sense. Super cheap and will get you drunk.

I just got home and in my mailbox this evening was a large envelope from Temple. It includes a folder with a number of forms and the acceptance letter.

I also received an additional letter offering me a Law Faculty Scholarship totaling $15,000 over three years. To retain the scholarship, I have to be in the top half of the class each year. That's a rather sweet deal, considering in-state tuition is ~$16,500 each year.
