Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Rutgers Camden
« on: March 09, 2010, 02:57:31 PM »
I am a 2009 Rutgers Camden grad who is currently clerking for a federal judge.  The job prospects for the top of the class are great, ranging from Biglaw to federal clerkships.  Many average students end up with various state court clerkships and at smaller firms. 

Almost everyone I knew was employed at graduation despite the crappy economy, but that is primarily b/c almost 50% of the class ends up clerking.  As you can probably guess, RU-C does much better than RU-N and SHU in Philly.  I also know people who ended up with Biglaw in NY and all of the reputable NJ firms (North and South).  I must emphasize, however, that you have to be in the top of your class to end up at these more reputable firms (but that applies to RU-N and SHU too). 

Thus, I don't think RU-N or SHU would give you any significant advantage over RU-C with regard to North Jersey firms, but they probably do have more connections with NY firms.

Thanks, its funny, I know that the money should (and probably will) make the difference, but there's some part of me that wants to go to Villanova. Anyway, thanks for the feedback.  Good luck to you.

Apparently I am one of the 5 accepted at Villanova.  I am very excited.  I also got in RU-Camden.  Im having a tough time making a decision because I am an NJ resident which sweetens the RU deal.

Current Law Students / Quinnipiac v. Pace
« on: June 26, 2006, 02:41:11 PM »
I need help from current students.  Which would you choose and why?

Can I get everyones opinion on WNEC v. Pace.  Which one is better and why? 

In response to the initial question, how about immigration???

I really loved the Pace campus, their clinical offerings etc, but I have only been admitted part-time.  I know almost nothing about Albany and have never even seen the city.  I have also heard rumblings that the students of Albany regularly bumping heads with the administration, but have heard only good reviews of Pace.  I think I would ultimately like to work in the NY/NJ/CT area.  Please help me, is it worth going to Pace part-time and transferring to full-time after a year or should I go to Albany full-time. 

Albany average starting salary was about 10K lower than Pace, but Im assuming this is offset by the low cost of living in upstate NY.  Anyway, please offer whatever advice you can.  Thanks.

p.s. Im going to visit Albany this Friday, so I will hopefully have a better idea thn.
