Some interesting facts about Rutgers Law School

One of the nation’s oldest research universities and a proud member of the Big Ten, Rutgers resides at the forefront of innovation in legal education. In July 2015, the ABA approved the unification of Rutgers’ two law schools to become one Rutgers Law School with locations in Camden and Newark. Based in close proximity to two of the nation’s five largest legal markets (New York and Philadelphia), while also deeply rooted in a third top-10 market (New Jersey), and with a fiercely loyal alumni network of over 20,000, Rutgers Law School provides students with the practical training and support system to succeed as a lawyer and to succeed professionally.

Even as it has become one of the 10 largest law schools in the nation and the leading public law school in the Northeast, Rutgers Law remains resolutely student-centered and welcoming, offering the curricular breath and resources of a single large school while also providing in each location the intimacy and warmth of a small close-knit community. Our expanded set of courses and experiential offerings mean more opportunities to develop as a legal thinker and professional.

The Rutgers Law learning experience is exceptionally engaging because of our signature Minority Student Program that promotes diversity in every sense of the word. An unwavering commitment to public service cultivates in our students various ways to put legal learning into action while making a profound impact on those in need. The extraordinary technological resources at Rutgers Law, like our immersive digital classrooms that instantly connect Camden and Newark and allow us to offer more specialized and team-taught classes, complement the academic breadth and traditions associated with one of the nation’s oldest universities.

mines doesnt say anything The dean said it would be in the admissions letter package that they mail
my house is like 3 miles from camden campus hopefully itll come in like 3 days
I have no patience im dying at this point
got the scholly offer in an email this morning, I am shocked that Drexel would still be cheaper lol
Anyone know how the waitlist movement is lol
@Peepzilla: are you out of state?
@Veton: I’m not too sure for this cycle but last cycles WL was pretty stagnant I believe
I was WL —-> R
@agurcsik: yeah im in philly currently
Is there an admitted students discord?
@agurcsik Last cycle I was waitlisted and didn't hear back til the day classes started. Pretty much ghosted, but that was expected as I had a much lower score. Hopefully with a few LOCI I can manage to get off the waitlist.
I'm one point below LSAT median and one point above GPA median and got Waitlisted...what're the odds I get accepted before April?
We are in the same boat! I’ve been wondering the same.
@SlimNimbleHound: Can't really give you a good answer about that. I applied late last year and was WL and didn't hear anything back even after loci until the first day of classes. Can I ask how long it took to hear back after your application went under review?
About 6 weeks
maybe four. They were on of the first schools to get back to me
Thank you for your inquiry. To date, no offers have been extended from the wait list. The list is open until the first day of classes in August, so a lot can happen between now and then. Should the Admissions Committee select your application for admission, you will be notified. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact us for updates throughout the cycle.
- per the email i got after asking about WL status
When is everyone thinking the next wave is? I applied 2/03 and wen under review 2/18
Waiting on the same, applied around the same date.
Hopefully soon. Looks like they've been relatively quick for decisions in their rolling basis cycle..
Eep I hope so! What other schools are you waiting on?
Heart sank when tge
Admissions email was just a news letter
I applied January 1st- still waiting has been in review since 1/8- any idea what I should do
Call Admissions and make sure everything is showing up on their end. Because I applied end of Feb and heard back two wekks later.
