A job anywhere out of Seton Hall is pretty unlikely. Seton Hall is the Brooklyn Law School of Newark. Highly over-priced with minimal return on investment. Rutgers and/or Temple are far better/cheaper options that will yield a far better shot at employment for far less money.

I see RM wanted to conclude this thread as soon as possible. Mission accomplished. TCR in the first post - could be the record.

If you want to work in Philadelphia, go to Yale or Harvard. If you can't get in to either of those, go to Temple.

I guess they'd work, too :D I'm not that big a fan of Penn's relationship with Philadelphia, though. If you can't get something through OCI, I think Temple gives you as good of prospects in Philadelphia as Penn does. Temple professors and career placement staff tend to have much better and deeper connections to the city, and Temple's alumni network basically owns it.

Usually I drive threads in an awful and unintended direction (unintended by the op, that is). So I figured I owed the TLS community one on this one... :D
