Camden is ranked higher, it's close to a district (appellate?) courthouse, and in a nicer area (but that's not saying much for sizeable cities in Jersey). It's literally a minute walk from Philadelphia, too.

ANy idea of job prospects/average salary?  I mean, Camden is ranked higher, but why?

No idea about salary, but the location of the court right across the street is good for getting a lot of experience and networking. I'm sure it's a huge gateway for summer employment, and a disproportionate number of 1Ls get clerkships there.

And go where?  haha

I applied to both RU schools.  I guess it comes down to Philly or NYC.  I have no idea if you need to be higher in your class at one or the other to get Biglaw.  I do know like 40% at both schools do "clerkships".

Anyone know the differences between the two student bodies? For example: Does one tend to have more commuters? How are the social networks at each? Does either have a collegial feel or professional feel? etc...
