Some interesting facts about Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law

Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law offers a curriculum and programs built upon the principle that students learn best when hands-on experience is part of their education. Philadelphia, which boasts one of America’s largest legal communities and a host of cultural attractions, has a lot to offer law students and young lawyers. Because Drexel University is located in the thriving University City neighborhood, the School of Law is the perfect place to learn by doing. The Kline School of Law is one of just two law schools in the nation offering co-op education—an approach that employers recognize produces outstanding, practice-ready lawyers. The co-op program is combined with an extensive menu of experiential offerings ranging from live-client clinics to high-quality simulation courses. The curriculum has been designed to ensure that students engage in active learning of the law. This practical experience pays off in different ways.

Our law students master legal principles and the real-world skills needed to apply them. Students gain confidence and savvy as they meet with clients, argue before judges, and engage in the many other tasks that define the legal profession. Along the way, students also launch lasting professional networks with many lawyers who become mentors, advisors, and even future employers. Even within the four walls of the law school, we infuse the traditional law school experience with practical skills. Thus, our curriculum features all the traditional courses tested on the bar exam mixed with innovative new offerings such as Transactional Lawyering, Regulating Patient Safety, E-Commerce Law, and Crime and Community. Professors incorporate experiential education into many courses, allowing students to simulate appellate arguments in Constitutional Law or to play the parts of prosecutors and defenders in Criminal Law.

We have intentionally limited the size of our student body, which allows every student to play an important part in the law school. Students can get involved in myriad existing groups or develop their own.

dammit all to heck —— waitlist
hahah oh well. congrats everyone
Congrats everyone
waitlist :(
@ExclusiveSillyGoose: wow ok thank you for that! They offered 120k, trying to figure out if that is full scholarship for 2 year or not
do you consider "good financial standing"(i.e. gpa>2.2) scholarships to be "conditional" scholarships? I feel like it's the bare minimum for most.
good academic*
Has anyone been able to figure out the total tuition price for the 2 year program? I figured I'd ask here before I call financial aid.
@DuckMallard: Aba considers good academic standing different than a conditional scholarship
I feel like 2.9 is better than just good academic standing for law school tho, especially considering Drexel’s mean gpa for 1ls is 3.0
i wonder if that person that just posted is from today
they marked 1/12 on decision
I didnt get any $$
their portal confuses me
Has anyone had any luck with a scholarship increase from Drexel this cycle?
im not sure if anyone has asked for more/negotiated yet
got full tuition with my original acceptance email
anyone waitlisted?
I just talked with the admissions staff, they pretty much said decisions are coming in 2 weeks and if you are not in that group you should be in the next 4 weeks
Accepted via status checker today 1/30
I got in yesterday but still haven’t gotten an email
same! hopefully today!
I got my email!
are all of the scholarships conditional?
I dont think so? mine is for as long as I maintain good academic standing (2.2)
from the admitted student portal it looks like some are conditional (2.95) but not all of them are
Thanks! I just saw that too. Good shout
Congrats everyone who was accepted!
hope to see you guys on accepted students day in two weeks :)
