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.
