if i can quote john lennon, i think the answer to law school is roughly that
[its] a concept through which we measure our pain.
and
i don't believe in [the lsat], i just believe in me.

also, if you're 1-2 years out of law school, there is no chance that you are non-trad.
although i am, undoubtedly, super-mature ( :roll: ), i still think of myself in roughly the same terms i thought of myself coming out of undergrad, though spanish speaking (and sucio).

I'm actually leaning back that way too so I feel kind of bad :oops: :( .

sadly no response yet.. complete as of 2/12.. but my friend heard yesterday and he went complete late Feb (clearly after me) what is goin on??? He had a substantially lower LSAT score (about 15 points) and around the same GPA.

Ugh I just want to know whats going on!!!! Also, his status checker still says "File Complete" and he received his letter in the mail yesterday, so I think the people in the office lie when they say that no decision has been made yet.

Well RU moved up. it was 87 last year right?! So that's good. It looks like RU Camden dropped though...

My status went DR and I got an email a few hours later... In the email they said they had just made the decision that morning so hopefully yours is coming soon!

What are people's thoughts on RU's new ranking? Good things for the future?

Camden dropped 3, Newark went up 7. This decision is driving me up the wall :(. I went into today leaning Camden (because I was starting to think I would prefer the Philly area to staying here in North NJ), but their job #'s and bar passage #'s both dropped, which concerns me more than just the ranking number.

I think it may have something to do with them getting a new dean. They probably will move up even more next year. With the amount of applicants this cycle I am sure there selectivity went up. Either way as long as they stay in the top 100 I'm happy. Rankings don't really mean much outside of the top 30 schools IMHO.

not only do the rankings not matter, they also do not make sense.

@keg411 - i personally would rather bet on north jersey/nyc over the next 40 years (your potential law career). as you get experience you can certainly move around, so maybe not the best logic.

but its pretty clear that
either way, north jersey > south jersey.
