Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Camden Crime
« on: March 30, 2005, 06:16:41 PM »
Camden's incredible crime rate is one of the reasons I decided not to go there.  And now I read this article from reuters:

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=1896&ncid=1896&e=5&u=/nm/20050330/us_nm/crime_camden_dc

Of course it might not be much of a factor for anyone else, but I just thought somebody out there who is considering Camden might find it interesting/scary.  10 times the national average for murder.  Also most rape, etc.  1 in 7 residents arrested last year! 1/2 of kids below poverty line. 170 active drug corners in 9 square miles. Yikes.

I realize there are those of you who are really excited about going to Camden and also those who will defend Camden and say it isn't so bad.  But wow!  that article is scary!

My husband and I are BOTH applying to law school.  That's put some stress on this process!  And we have very disparate admissions stats.  That makes it even more complicated.  Anyone else doing this?

So we are trying to decide between the following acceptances:

2 at Rutgers Camden
2 at Willamette ( 1 half tuition)
1 at OSU and 1 at Capital (some money at OSU)
2 at Cleveland State ( 1 full tuition)
2 at Ohio Northern Univ. (1 full tution, 1 half)
1 at UDenver & 1 at U Colorado

What sounds better to you?  We both lean toward government or public interest... we shy away from the 80 hour week corporate stuff. But who knows, maybe we'll give in for the $?

Does anyone know which way the schools to which I am applying lean?  Left? Right? In the middle?
