newark is outside nyc
also not the nicest
I think the Newark building is nicer (from what I've heard) and has always been seen as the main campus - but I applied Camden simply because the living options are way better.
Newark/ North Jersey in general is just way more chaotic.
Camden is rough, but everyone says the Rutgers Camden campus is actually really safe and it's kinda sequestered off from the rest of Camden right over the bridge from Philly. Really opens up where you can live too - can live in Philly, in Jersey, etc... and it's definitely cheaper to live in that area too versus North Jersey/ Newark
What are my odds at rutgers? 4 years work experience 3.05 gpa, 159 lsat on file, but taking it this week with hopes of doing better. been PTing from 165-169
Hey guys, as a NJ native, just want to let you know Newark > Camden > Philly in terms of safety.

I was accepted into Rutgers yesterday but there was no scholarship info. Does this mean I didn't receive one or could it be sent at a later time?

okay, thank you!
My app went into review on 1/25 has anyone heard back?
Anyone here attending for sure? Didn't start as my top choice, but the money is somewhat hard to turn down. Everyone I've talked to from the programs has been so freaking nice too.

I was somewhat concerned by the drop in rankings. Not sure if anyone knows why?? I also heard there was a lawsuit against Rutgers Law, and was wondering if that could drop rankings further in the future?? I haven't applied yet as a result.
14:38
It is because in 2023 the Camden & Newark numbers were combined. The Newark Bar passing rate is 80% and Camden is 50%

it has very similar employment outcomes in NJ to Seton Hall which (while ranked higher) is often 2-3x the price.

newark was historically ranked higher (70s) and camden was (100s) when campuses merged, there was some impact from that, but also they were very cautious with covid which had an impact.
[] ConcernedTearfulHornet
12:39
but in terms of school in that ranking area, rutgers punches above its weight
14:25
any idea when they will start taking in WLed students?
@ShoobyTooby: I think around when seat deposits start (so like mid April ish?)
13:04
Any other groupchat for attending students besides the Facebook page?
