I am not attending Drexel. I've read a lot and talked to some admission counselors (not affiliated with either school) about Rutgers-Newark and Drexel. Most people going to Rutgers-Newark are looking to transfer out after year 1. The neighborhood sucks and your competing with many many law schools in the NYC area.
Those who would auomatically pick Rutgers over Drexel are doing nothing but reading US News and do not have a long-term view.
Rutgers Newark is not easy to transfer out of. They also don't rank which adds to the difficulty. I don't think jobs in NYC are out of your reach if you attend Drexel. Drexel alumni will be supportive in NYC, and again, you will get far more attention from the school and career services than at Rutgers. Believe me Rutgers is a state school with a chip on its shoulder.
that's a nice employer list (i see mine on there ...good to hear you're up to speed on the particulars of the program. how about employment after school...does the co-op program purport to lead to permanent opportunities, or are you on your own after you finish a co-op w/ an employer? do both terms need to be done with the same employer?
good luck; keep us posted on what you decide.
how does the co-op program work? how will placement be decided? what employers will be participating?The coop program works by placing a student into two 6 mo. long externships for credit with a co op partner. You can choose to be paid, but then you will not receive credit and you will need to due more. When your time is up you train a new Drexel student to do your job and pick up where you are leaving off. Placement is decided by student interest, employer requirements, the school, and by the employers themselves. The list of employers participating at this time are:
I think the UC Davis Adcomm is just plain sadistic. I figured they would have rejected me as soon as my file was complete, but instead they toy with my emotions by asking for fall transcripts, then let me stew for another month. Now it looks like they want unofficial winter transcripts..wtf? I have deposits I need to put down with more realistic schools! Stop torturing me! Or, don't...I'm just kidding UC Davis, if you're reading this...I love you. Please don't leave me.
still pending at the 3 schools i applied to. i'm starting to think that i'll be rejected/waitlisted by all of them.
