questions about Campbell
« on: April 01, 2007, 12:01:16 AM »
Just a few questions about Campbell.....

Which would be the better choice Campbell or North Carolina Central?

What is the grade curve?

Would I have any prospects for 1L summer employment?

Do any medium or larger firms actually hire from there?

Any help would be appreciated.

let me first say that I'll be in the 07-08 app cycle, so I haven't even begun the application process yet. Obviously I can't speak on grading. 

But I would say that Campbell would be the better choice academically. It has a great reputation, especially in NC. However, as you probably already know its very expensive, especially when compared to NCCU.

If you go to the Campbell website, there is a viewbook there where you can see what all the current students have done in terms of work while at Campbell.

NCCU would be a lot less expensive but Campbell would arguably offer better job opportunities. Central's not even that well respected in certain places in NC. Also NCCU has a really high attrition rate. If you asked me, Campbell isn't worth the money either but if the choice is between those two schools the answer is obvious to me. Most people I know that are Central alums (and even some faculty) advise against attending. I've never encountered anyone that worked at Campbell that had anything negative to say about the school. Sometimes the extra money is worth it.

Well the whole law snd religion thing takes it down a few notches for me.

I understand that though from my experience they are not that forceful with religion.

I would go to Campbell over NCCU in a heartbeat.  I am a NC native and my dad is a pretty well respected attorney in NC and his circle has a lot more respect for Campbell than NCCU.

They are fairly well connected in the NC court system.

Campbell over NC Central in a heartbeat as well.  Campbell has a better alumni network and is MUCH more respected in N.C.

 Wait until you get a financial aid package from both schools (even if it means two deposits) -- all of my friends at Campbell got grants.  If money is a deciding factor, then wait until both offers are in.

NCCU was considered a top 25 underranked by Vault.... ???
IU-B '10

Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?
