Rutgers vs. St John's U?
« on: May 10, 2008, 10:19:07 PM »
My friend is trying to decide, but since he never comes on here, I decided to just ask for him.

Thanks in advance.

If you live in jersey, RU hands down if for nothing else than the in-state tuition, If you want to practice in NJ, RU is definetly the way to go as well, huge RU alumni base in NJ.

Rutgers has pretty good Biglaw placement in the NLJ250 compared to similarly ranked schools - something like 15%?  Is this due to the high minority population and diversity recruiting?  I only ask because I wonder if a non-URM going to Rutgers would be a disadvantage.

For what it's worth anecdotally speaking, there were 5 people Rutgers at my firm (vault 25 in Manhattan) last summer. From what I have seen Rugters seems like a pretty decent school that gets creamed in the rankings because of there minority outreach (lower LSAT/GPA). Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking to transfer there, but it seems like a much much better place than St. John's (and I'm an undergrad SJU alum).
