You must be going via the NJ National Guard's free tuition program, correct?

Free law school is nice, but your ability to get into a "T7 and below" should open up some doors for full-rides at places better than Rutgers. Sounds like you're in a pretty good position, though. Good luck.

I'll take this one. Both Newark and Camden are two huge shitholes that I wouldn't go to even with a full scholarship with no stipulations and a sizable stipend.

Referring to the schools themselves or just the location?

i grew up in the newark area. not fun. i think camden is actually worse. i'd pay $200k to bounce and for prestige but i don't know squat about JAG.

Rutgers is definitely one one of the better TT schools. That being said, id say Virginia and its not even close. Rutgers usually place around 30% or more of their students in non-article three clerkships and only about 40% in private practice.

If you get jag out of Virginia, that's awesome. However, Virginia gives you far, far more desirable backups if it doesn't work out.

From what I understand, Rutgers is a solid option if you want to work in NJ, and especially good considering the price in-state. That said, UVA is a much better choice I'd think. I'm considering Rutgers simply because I can go for next to nothing, it is highly likely I will find work through connections I've made living here my whole life, and I have no intent of living IN Newark. Wouldn't choose it over a T14 though...
