While it's nice to have the additional option of working on the Jersey side of the River, you can't just be "South Jersey or bust," because besides small, <10-attorney standalone shops, you're mostly looking at Philly branch firms, which, if they're hiring at all, are going to have minuscule class sizes. The one exception to this rule, of course, is Archer & Greiner, but even they can't be hiring any more than seven summers. Central and North Jersey offer more options, but I'm not sure how well RU-C students fare competing with their RU-N counterparts. The Trenton/Princeton area is probably more of a free-for-all.

A majority of Burlington/Camden/Gloucester County white collar professionals work in Philadelphia because that's where the jobs are. Law is no exception to this rule.

Just a word to the wise...make sure you're Top 5%-10% at Temple. Outside of that has been brutal at OCI this year.

My firm has a fair number of associates from the local Philly-area schools, though not so many in the more recent classes. Purely anecdotal, but it does happen.

Can we be friends? I was so tempted to correct an irate woman who kept saying that.

In general, I don't correct this sort of thing, so that future educated people can distinguish fellow scholars from the ignorant masses.
