You have to do your research to find it, but I believe the numbers were:

LSAT lower quartile/upper quartile: 157/161
LSAT median: 160
GPA lower quartile/upper quartile: 3.1/3.6
Median GPA: 3.4

I depended on other members with USNWR subscriptions since Camden seems technologically challenged.

Thanks for the info.!
I'm still waiting to hear something. I'd love to attend RU-Camden. I hope applicants continue to be scared away due to the talk about the merge so there's more room for me!

FYI, the Rutgers Board of Governors just passed a resolution that all Rutgers-Camden students enrolled as of 2012-13 academic year will graduate, no matter what happens, with a Rutgers degree.

I'm listening to the recording of the BOG meeting, and it sounds as if, as of now, they are opposed to any merger of Rutgers-Camden with Rowan, or dividing Rutgers-Camden from Rutgers University. It's all being worded very carefully, but they certainly don't seem to think it's anything they want.

It sounds like Camden's only hope is for Rutgers to be able to selectively implement certain parts of the recommendations. If it comes down to Camden v. Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the former will be severed. Its disgusting that George Norcross has this much power...the average New Jerseyan doesn't want this by a margin of 2.5 to 1. However, he has the right friends in the right places to railroad this thing through.

The guarantee of the Rutgers name on my diploma has sealed my attendance though. I just hope I'm not part of the last class.

I think you made the right decision.

I would suggest doing jump start.

Not yet, either add me (Michael Toren; Illinois State University) or send me your name in a PM. Let's get it going.

Just make sure you do your research.


All of the entering students will get Rutgers degrees and that's all that matters. I'm loving the fact that this is scaring off a bunch of the students especially the overqualified ones staying here solely for the in-state tuition...

+1
Camden is still among my top choices though.
Btw, readers of this thread-
if you're considering on attending Ru-C you should join the CO2015 group mrtoren created :D

Our school just got shat on in the rankings. Michigan State, which didn't even report employment at graduation, was notably higher despite similar salaries. Merger bias? Under-the-table payments?

Let the speculation begin.

The merger may have had something to do with it. Newark stayed put while Camden dropped significantly lower.

Whatever the case, I'm sure the quality of education hasn't changed.

got in via status check, and they sent me the large packets already.

Camden might be the only school to accept me so I'm very likely going to attend.

(I'm from the SF bay area, nice to meet you all)

If you can make it, I would absolutely attend Dean's Law Day. Last year, it helped me decide on attending Rutgers-Camden. Second, this year, if you have reservations about the Rowan issue, you can speak with people such as Dean Solomon and Dean Andrews about any reservations or concerns you may have. I will be there that day. Any questions, PM me.
