Where should I go next fall? / Rutger Newark & U Pitt.

I have not visited either one, and although one is ranked higher than the other I dont know a lot abt either. Any info- student body, area around the school, cost of living (might be moving from tx), job prospects after grad, faculty, the school environment..??

sorry phanatic for being so vague, I was a little bit too excited and had a final in 30 mins. But Rutgers Newark. 158, 3.3 just like auburn. Complete 11/08. Got an email to apply for a scholarship for accepted students. Does anyone know much abt the school? Job prospects, strong points etc

sorry another invitation to apply question, or 2. Why would a school you probably dont have a shot at invite you to apply? My scores are below the 25th percentile for the past class. I replied and told them I was not sure I made the cut and gave them my numbers 158/3.3 and Duke goes.. we do not just look at numbers. Should I apply? still hesitant, would be a waste of money and they dont give fee waivers unless you apply or ur Lsat was great!

 I have natural hair, don't wear afros too much but its not permed/ straightened in anyway. I have heard the usual, Law school/ being a lawyer w/ natural hair .. no way. Its unprofessional, and too "militant" looking, I won't get any good jobs and even the process in school might be hard dealing with other people. I just wanted to hear opinions young blk ppl. Do you guys think its that crucial? Why or Why not?
