I am also a girl Thanks mjs1187 for answering all our questions! Congrats on the summer job as well! I didn't realize about the lack of a ranking system, that is interesting.
How do you feel Camden compares with other Philly schools like nova and temple?
Do a lot of students live in Philly?
Also curious about jumpstart, if you think it is worth it, if you did it/did you regret not doing it?
I've heard from 3Ls that Rutgers Camden places better in Philly than Temple. (Don't quote me on that because I never confirmed that with statistics or anything). We have the advantage of the clerkship opportunities. Moreover, if you get in state tuition (which they give to everyone) then its a lot cheaper as well. Cost of living is cheaper in NJ. That's all I can really say as I never really looked in Temple or Nova.
I know of a couple that live in Philly but most don't to take advantage of in state tuition. Most students live in the Victor.
