Nova typically places double the students into biglaw as Rutgers (if you want to use that as a benchmark). Rutgers students do clerkships out the ass, but AFAIK they aren't a bunch of Art.

Penn > Nova/Temple -> Rutgers-Camden -> Widener/Drexel (probably edge to Widener depending on the job) for Philadelphia/Wilmington.
I said if you are debt-averse. If your choices are Villanova, Temple OOS, and Rutgers in-state (all at sticker) Rutgers is the smartest financial decision.
Eh, while that statement may be correct, there are still some issues with it. This isn't the proper place to go into it though.
