Yeah, I think I should go with SHU and not for some fleeting prestige. I thought this thread was needed because there were so many others that really pumped up Rutgers-Newark using no logic or numbers at all, just random bs. That certaintly didn't line up with my research so far, and it seems like most people are in agreement on my conclusions. I would welcome a dissenting opinion from a Rutgers-Newark student or someone who wants to go there.Still a long way to go, though, so hopefully I'll get into better schools and it won't come down to this.
thanks for all the stats. in at both schools but still leaning towards rutgers. one, rutgers does have the name recognition advantage and for someone who wants to go to big law firms, name recognition matters. majority of the partners and in-house attorneys that i work with all voted for rutgers over seton hall. these are the people who don't really look at rankings or current law school trends when they look at resumes. they look at grades, experience, and extra curriculars (law review, journal, etc)..and name recognition. two, if hiring managers place both rutgers and seton hall in the same tier anyway, i would rather spend less on tuition.I plan to attend ASDs for both, maybe SH will win me over then
Seton Hall has a much better employment rate at graduation, doesn't it?Honestly though, either way, if you work hard, you can't go wrong.
