There is so much fail going on at Rutgers-Camden. I wonder if they'll be gone entirely in 3-4 years.

I know a lot of people have been pontificating on this recently, but there's absolutely no chance of this happening, especially now that RU-C is directly (read: financially) a part of the main RU-NB campus. The Rutgers brand is too strong, and NJ legislators (Republicans and Democrats alike) care too much about their state's higher education to allow one of their two public in state law schools to fail.

They won't let the Rutger's institution fail, i agree. Individual campuses aren't insulated necessarily, especially considering the number of full scholarships Camden is giving out. Frankly, I don't know how they can afford to keep this up.

Because they are going to section stack and get all their money back next year. That's what stips are for, my friend.


I wish there was a way to reach all their students and warn them.

I'm MAF about that school and its lying to and manipulating students.

I've worked two blocks from the Law School for the past 22 years. The worst things that ever happened to me were that a guy tried to sell me a "hot" video camera (with a brick inside the box) while I was sitting in front of the Prosecutor's Office, and my car was broken into and my GPS stolen (while parked directly beneath a sign that said "Prosecutor's Office Parking Only"). LOL, some dumb criminals in Camden. :)

The Law School has gotten bigger and better with a beautiful new building, and the campus has grown enormously since I went there. I am very familiar with how the school is now because of its proximity and because I have worked with numerous recent graduates. The faculty is top-notch.

Nobody with his or her heart set on BigLaw is likely to make Rutgers his or her first choice, but short of that, it's still one of the best schools around.

You don't want to go aimlessly driving or walking around the area beyond the Law School after dark, but the campus itself is very well patrolled and as safe as just about any campus anywhere. I lived in the suburbs because there were no dorms when I attended, but there are options at the school and close by (the Victor), as well as all along the Speedline.


What was the tuition in 1984 or when you enrolled? What was your Cost of Attendance? How much debt did you have? Do you know what the tuition is now? Do you have any idea how hiring is now out of law school? Do a number of grads take unpaid jobs?


Amen. 1984...give me a friggin break.

They just admitted me without an application and are offering me their Dean's Scholarship (full-tuition). They must be really desperate to be accepting someone who won't be graduating undergrad until May.

Also got this email. Seriously considered asking if they would, say....buy me out of my lease for the 2012-2013 school year? Pay my moving costs? Not because there's a snowball's chance in hell I'd go, but out of pure curiosity about the level of desperation.

Class has to start in what....3 weeks? Even if someone were interested how would they make that happen? Perplexing

I got a full scholarship offer with some pretty generous stips from Rutgers (I think it was Rutgers, I tore the thing up. Don't quote me on it.) Still, I ain't taking nothing with stipulations on it. This is a buyer's market right now. They want to play that bullshit, they can find someone else. That's what you get for playing hokey with your student's livelihoods.

Besides...New Jersey? Yuck. :shock:

Kind of just threw a complete shit fit.

Told them not to contact me again after they emailed and snail mailed me a letter. ...Then they send me multiple emails.

Leave me alone.

This is why I don't even bother telling schools not to contact me.

It's obnoxious that a supposedly legitimate educational institution will ignore your "no further contact" request and continue to email you. Reeks of desperation, which I imagine is the general scent at Rutgers-Camden law school.

Certainly a reasonable thing to "completely throw a shit fit" about.

Yeah, you're right, the real issue here is a TLS user's hyperbolic phrase choice. Poor Rutgers.

I know someone who recently threw a party to celebrate getting a full ride to RU-C.

This whole law thing sucks.

This thread is tl;dr but I was glad to see I wasn't the only person who thought this was weird. I'm traveling and got a call from my dad that I had gotten a full ride from Rutgers Camden in my mail. I was a little confused seeing as I had never heard of it, but hey, at least we have backup. :wink:

Dude just go to Rutgers-Camden. It's one of the best law schools in New Jersey and they clearly want you.
If the T14's don't want you then screw 'em, go where you'll be loved and the professors will recognize what a special matriculant you are.

Dance with the girl that brung you.
