You have every right to defend yourself Laur --- DRJJ was way out of line.

thanks to everyone who has been defending me to the cretin. 

and, as a side note to this truly mature conversation we've been having, i got an email today from Rutgers-Newark telling me that I've been accepted.  So yay!  Now I don't have to go to Quinnipiac.

All I know about Rutgers is that my mom's friend from college went to law school there.  Like my mom, she got a B.A. in English and taught high school students.  But then she went back to get her law degree and now she works for the attorney general's office.  Her experience is the only impression my mother has of the legal profession.  Since she went to a second tier school and decided to work for the government, it's not surprising that she now makes less money than she did as an English teacher.  Over Thanksgiving dinner, my concerned mother matter-of-factly informed me that, should I attend law school, I would be stuck with that debt my entire life because every lawyer makes less than a public school teacher.  I tried explaining the difference in average starting salaries between tier 1 and tier 2 schools, and between private practice and the government, but it was to no avail. 

Moral of the story - When you graduate from Rutgers, don't work for the attorney general's office.

It's kind of funny because I want to go work in the OGC in the CIA right after school (and hopefully during my 2L summer as well).. but it only pays like 60k and I will have about 150k in debt

But anyways, more on topic on rutgers.. I don't think I would be too concerned with the campus because if you have a car, philly and upenn are like 10-15 minutes away.. and camden isn't that bad that you can't drive through it.

On another note.. if you're a "URM" in the legal field, rutgers camden is part of a racist program in philly that gives 1Ls (paid I think?) clerkships in law firms and in the legal departments of companies in philly.. this is a big thing because it can really help your resume, and most people have trouble finding paid legal work during that first summer

God, ain't that the truth!  I'm seriously considering Miami even if I get into schools that are ranked a lot better. 

Me need warm too.
