Dont listen to Crossarmant I believe he is a troll! He has been blasting Rutgers Camden on many other threads. He was completely wrong about the merger news and is completely wrong about everything else that involves Rutgers.
I'm far from being a troll and I don't appreciate the insinuation. I live across from it in the current dorms and ride by every single day on my way to work. They just finished with the exterior paneling and on my way past today I noticed that they have not even finished the wiring yet or anything. There is not even a single article or furniture in that building at all, they're still putting down the bricks in the outside walkways. It may be done in time, but they sure are cutting it down to the wire.
As to the "blasting" of Rutgers-Camden, I've done no such thing. Merely pointing out potential shortcomings amongst the glory hailing by everyone else is far from denouncing the place as a whole. It is not the best law school in the country nor even on of the top and shouldn't be treated as such, I lack the sense of loyalty and fervent defensiveness that most of the student body has and try to look at it like an outside observer and keeping impartiality. It's a solid enough regional school for New Jersey, but it is the least respected of the 3 in the state and the least respected (minus Drexel and Widener) in the Philly area. The merger may have been halted, but recruitment and job prospects have been declining rapidly over the past few years and the rankings have plummeted drastically. The merger fiasco scared off strong candidates making the ranking drop even more imminent and more destructive. Far be it from trolling to give an objective first hand opinion from someone who does not "bleed scarlet and black."
