Cool.  I'd about given up.

Wouldn't happen to be in MSP, would you?

Rutgers - Newark / Let's talk

I'm an incoming class of '09 day student.  I want to take a shot at using this board to share as much info about RU-N as possible, since it doesn't seem to get much attention in the regular boards.

Also, I'm from the NJ area, so I might be able to answer questions about apartments, neighborhoods, and such.

Here's hoping this thread won't go unnoticed.

Thanks for the replies.  See you at Rutgers in the fall!   ;D

Current Law Students / Rutgers - Newark and Seton Hall

I'm currently deciding between the two.   Seton Hall has given me a scholarship putting it on equal footing, financially, with Rutgers, so now it's a toss up, pending decisons from other schools.  So far I'm 3/3 with 3 pending.

Is anyone here an attending student that can perhaps comment on either school?  I live quite far, so I may not be able to visit the campus until after a decision.  I'm interested in atmosphere, opportunities, professors, and things of that sort.  Thanks.

I'm trying to look past the poster's obvious stupidity in both language and deed and see all circumstances.

1) Plaintiff was doing illegal drugs in the defendant's home.
2) Plaintiff followed defendant out of house (presumably high on illegal drugs) with intentions unclear.
3) Defendat can argue that he felt threatened and acted preemtively in self-defense.
4) Defendant feared for his safety, and hit the guy once (if I read that correctly, which I'm not entirely sure I did).  Defendant fled and plaintiff did not pursue.

But, of course, this all depends on what, if anything, was said to any officials.  If he told the story as he did here, he's screwed.  But I can see him spinning this and getting off on a much lesser charge.  Lawyer friend of mine said that this is the likely outcome.

If I believed it was a flame, I wouldn't have posted it here.

Plus, how do I modify it into a poll?

Quote from: idiot from another board
Default  Aggravated Assault: Am I screwed???
The INCIDENT: (Around Spring 2.5 - 3 months ago)
My old roommate and some of his buddies (they white) were smokin on National Weed day in the living room. I told them to go in his room or roll out. My roommate got made...I choked him...after we were separated by my girl and his boys, 1 of his boys was talking *&^ im like come outside and its curtains for all the end while im outside with my girl...the dude talkin *&^% was coming out and i approached him like What Up...before he could answer...BAM...he lost his front grill...
2.5 - 3 months later (my roommate long gone), cops knock on my door like...are you blahzey like yeh....they like...we got a warrant for your arrest...

But anyway...

The *&^% is my first scratch.
Spent like 30hrs in the can before being released on $5000 bail.
You would think i would have gotten R.O.R cause it was my first scratch right?

My court date is the 26th (this Wednesday). Should i get a good defense lawyer? or is this easy enuff for a Public Defendant to handle?

They trynna charge me with A.A i guess because he lost his grill....but it was like i was trynna roof the n-word...after the punch...he stumbled and ran back in the crib...i didnt chase him or nothing...

What yall think?
Fvcked or Not?

FVCK...a bruvva scared as *&^%...

and yeh...its my first offense...and Im a full-time college student...looks good for me right?

edit: in Philadelphia...Commonwealth of PA law applies..

To top it all off, he posts this on a...less than reputable board asking for legal advice.   ???

Anyway, predict his outcome.

Consider looking for apts in Montclair.  Nice place, close to Newark, and you can find a nice apt for cheap.  You'd better have cash if you wanna live in Hoboken.

Is Montclair accessible from Rutgers-Newark via public transportation? I'm taking off from work this Friday to check out the hood and am curious about your suggestion. Thanks

Yeah, that's the down side.  Montclair to Newark is a hop, skip, and jump by car, but I don't think the trains connect them anymore.  So a car is a must.  If public transportation is an issue for you and you don't want to live in Newark, then Hoboken or Jersey City are your best options.  I would opt for Hoboken.  The only nice part of JC is the Waterfront, and it's as expensive as Hoboken, if not more so, plus Hoboken def has more life.  Parking is a gonna be a b!tch, though.

Good luck.  I'll see you in August.  You'll recognize me; I'll be the tallest guy in your class.
