Graduating Rutgers Law.  Have clerkship in the state Appellate Court, likely will graduate with honors.  All of my contacts/network is in north jersey.  Post clerkship, want to work in the AG, Prosecutor's Office or NJ based large to mid sized firm.  Is the NY bar necessary for me?  My fear is that by taking NY, I'll be spreading myself too thin.  I can't fail NJ on my first try.  Flip side, seems like everyone takes both and might be at a huge disadvantage not having NY even for someone looking for a good north jersey practice.
