Rutgers vs. Law firm job?

Postby joysbreath » Tue May 10, 2011 11:25 pm

I have been accepted into Rutgers for Fall 2011 and I am currently working in a small plaintiff/corporate defense law firm.
I have just started this job and have only been working for a month. I and considering whether to leave my job and start law school or working for a full year and defer my admission to next year.
On one hand I felt like I wanted to finished law school ASAP and working in mostly plaintiff law firm wouldn't help my future career that much because I plan to go into the corporate world.
On the other hand I thought I could learn more about the practice on my job and it's an opportunity I shouldn't pass on.
Should I wait for a year or go to school now? I can't really choose to work and study at the same time because I am an international student.
Also, how good is Rutgers for a corporate career?
Thank you all!

As an international student, you will pay OOS. Any substantial scholarship? If no, I'd say work for a year, gain experience, and -more importantly- RETAKE to get money or better school next cycle.
