I am delighted to inform you that, based on your undergraduate record, test scores, and background, including undergraduate school and state of residency, Rutgers Law School at Camden has identified you as someone we believe has the potential to be highly successful in law school, and we encourage you to consider applying for and joining our incoming Fall 2012 class. As part of this outreach program, all application fees and deposits are waived, and if accepted, our law school still has a limited number of full tuition Dean’s Academic Scholarships available for the 2012-2013 academic year that you are eligible for. These awards are funded by the law school and carry full tuition stipends that are applied directly against your tuition.Scholarship Terms.
Students awarded this Dean's Academic Scholarship are eligible for reappointment for this award during their second and third years at Rutgers-Camden, contingent upon maintaining full-time status, moving into and continuing to reside in the state of New Jersey, and an overall academic average that is in the top 40% of their class during their first academic year of study at Rutgers and for each academic year thereafter. If the scholarship student’s grade-point average should go below the top 40%, the student will still be eligible for a scholarship in the amount of $10,000 per year as long as the student maintains at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average. Should you choose to go part-time, the scholarship will be pro-rated over the four-year program period.

We encourage you to consider Rutgers Law School at Camden as the place to advance your professional career. Rutgers University is one of the oldest public institutions of higher learning in the nation. Our law school at the Camden campus is proud to continue the university’s academic tradition of excellence and is home to many leading legal scholars. Just minutes from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, our campus offers an attractive, 40 tree-lined acre, urban campus that is at the base of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to Philadelphia, the fifth-largest city in America. The Law School opened the doors to its exciting new law school building in 2008, creating state-of-the art classrooms, newly renovated 100-150 seat lecture theaters in the original law building, multiple seminar rooms, and expanded space for student organizations and social life at the law school. The Clark Commons - a magnificent two-story glass bridge and art display - houses a student lounge and Law Cafe and welcomes visitors crossing the Ben Franklin Bridge from Philadelphia into New Jersey. The campus is also part of the redeveloped Camden Waterfront. The Susquehanna Bank Center, Adventure Aquarium, Campbell’s Field (the minor league baseball stadium), the Battleship New Jersey, the recently constructed RiverLINE rail system, and federal and state courts are located adjacent to or within a few short blocks of the law school. Only 1 1/2 hours from New York City, 2 hours from Baltimore, 2 1/2-3 hours from Washington D.C., with the famous Jersey shore with miles of beaches and Atlantic City just over one hour away, students have many options available to them for week-end excursions.
If you are interested in speaking with a faculty member about a particular area of the law, career services, a student or alumni located in your part of the nation, or would like to tour the law school, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please note, this scholarship is not transferrable to any other school within the Rutgers system or outside of our Law School at Camden. All admissions are subject to final review and approval by the Admissions Committee.
As a 1986 graduate of the Law School and a former partner at a major Philadelphia firm, if you have any questions concerning the law school, housing or your potential legal career, please feel free to contact me at 800/466-7561 or by e-mail at email@example.com
. I look forward to seeing you among the class that enters in the Fall of 2012.
