Lewis and Clark - sending me a fee waiver, then deferring me, then rejecting me.

St. John's - Applied in Nov and haven't heard a word.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Brooklyn PT vs. Rutgers-Newark?

I agree, Laur0212 was providing information based on her experiences and personal knowledge as a student at Rutgers.  To suggest she was trying to pull wool over the eyes of us prospective students is really far fetched.  I appreciated the thoughts of someone who is actually a student at the school and based their posts on first hand experience rather than just reports and magazines.

A lot of people choose Rutgers because they are interested in gov't and PI, while there may be other contributing reasons for the high clerkship rate, it makes sense that the students there would be drawn to clerkships. The Career Services' page looks remarkably like every other school's web page - statistics, salary ranges, programs and services...I fail to find the outrageous factor.

Laur0212 never made any crazy claims about Big Law (in fact, she acknowledged she wasn't even interested) to deserve such a negative post.  She was just sharing her positive experiences.

Lighten up!  No one is forcing you to go to Rutgers if you don't want to.

If you have your heart set on public interest, you are smart to take tution costs and COL very seriously.  I knew one guy who went to CUNY, he had already been working for a non profit for years, had connections in his field, and knew he didn't need to go into ridiculous debt to do what he wanted to do.  He also had a huge one bedroom out in Queens for a fraction of the price of a Manhattan apt.

I'm so glad to see someone from Rutgers on here, especially since you seem content with your experience.  It was great to read your old posts.

HAHA.  See my thread "Living in New Jersey" - It has been traumatic.

I put a deposit down at Rutgers.  Since I plan on doing gov't work I can't afford to take on massive loans.  Rutgers is a fraction of Brooklyn's tuition so even if I got accepted I don't see how I could change my mind.  But it still would be nice to know if I even had an option.

I'm starting to feel like, I don't like you if you don't like me.
Seriously Sour.

But I thought my years of experience was an asset?

I'll be 33 when I graduate but I still get mistaken for being
a college student.  Maybe future interviewers won't  catch on.
