Widener (TTTT with campuses in Harrisburg, PA and Wilmington, DE)
With four schools already in the Philadelphia area, I guess the ABA had $olid rea$on$ for accrediting one more law school in that locale. After all, Philadelphia so badly needs another 150 or so JDs every year. And, of course, Drexel grads will have a shot at Biglaw – and other decent legal employment. The University of Pennsylvania has nothing on Drexel! Just ask the admissions officers/salesmen – they’ll confirm what I just said.
Don’t forget the plethora of law schools in surrounding states. Oh, the industry shills think that JDs from schools in Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, West Virginia, New York, and New Jersey will be content to stay in their respective states, you say?
Here are the Admissions Criteria for entry into the Prestigious Earle Mack School of Law:
Candidates for admission are required to demonstrate excellence and leadership in their careers. They must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by one of the regional accrediting associations of the United States or, if foreign educated, a degree equivalent to a four year baccalaureate degree, have registered for Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) and take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). The candidate’s undergraduate grade point average and LSAT scores will be strong factors in determining admission to the Drexel University Earle Mack School of Law. In addition, the Admissions Committee will consider a student’s extracurricular activities, work experience, and volunteer service. The Earle Mack School of Law seeks a diverse class of students from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, from different parts of the country and world, and from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
