I'm from NJ and seton hall does have a good reputation in NJ. Chris Christie went there and a lot of the attorneys at my am100 firm in our central jersey office. If you want to stay in NJ and not practice in NYC, there probably isn't a need for most people to go to a higher ranked school.

"Chris christie went there" is an endorsement now?

Whether you like the guy or not doesn't the diminish the fact that he is a governor, which is a successful career outcome. Also, it's more known and credible in the state now because they have a well known alumnus

LOL. As governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie earns $175K/yr. The man graduated from law school nearly 30 years ago and yet makes less than the base salary of a first-year associate in big law.

Perhaps $175K is a good annual salary for a Seton Hall grad with thirty years of experience, but it seems laughable to anyone who graduated from one of the dozens of law schools properly ranked above Seton Hall.

175k on paper, probably like 1.75 mil under the table, could be higher because that man sits at a lot of tables...KABOOM

Using annual income as the sole measure of success? No ties to Christie, Seton Hall, or New Jersey, but that seems laughable.

Thought it was common practice to at least spoiler-tag disturbing content.

The presentation would have been enriched by that, I agree. Sidenote, that pic is what Kenny Powers turned into after he got clean harhar.
