Seaton Hall or Rutgers Newark
« on: January 09, 2007, 12:22:14 PM »
So i'll only apply to one or the other, and i'm leaning towards rutgers.  SH seems to be a hell of a lot more $$ and i doubt they would give me any money to go there :-\.  Any it seems like rutgers grads have a higher average starting salary when they come out. 
so agreed that rutgers is probably better right?

I think it's somewhat a wash, but it might be worth it to apply to both because it seems Seton Hall tries to outdo Rutgers's low tuition with scholarships, and considering your GPA, you might get one. Seton Hall has a nicer location and a higher bar pass rate. It's building is also much nicer. Job placement is pretty similar.

i guess it makes sense.
looking at the ABA info  both schools give money to about 46% of the students but the median amount at SH is 14k whereas rutgers its only about 4k.  and seatons hall costs about 34k and rutgers 23 k
uhh ..so annoying. ??? i wish one had just sent a fee waiver. it would make life easier.
although i have been getting some random fee waivers so schools are getting desperate. :-X

You've also got to consider that getting residency status at Rutgers is a breeze if you're wiling to sign a year long lease in NJ. YOu can establish residency before your first year as well, so tuition at RU looks more like 18k than 23k.

I didn't realize it was so easy to get in-state residence [i figured i'd have to wait at least a yr]. I'd def be on top of that right away if i go there.  i just hope rutgers could get me a decent job in the city [around 100k ] i'm pretty sure once i got there i'd get good grades. thats doesnt seem to be my problem. now the LSAT is[another story  :-\ :'(

i'vce heard being a white puts you at a big disadvantage b/c rutgers is all about diversity but i think i'd still get in regardless.

Eh. Don't worry about it. AA can't hurt you that bad.
