Do NOT waste your time complaining about the concrete campus in the middle of the Central Ward of Newark and the commuter atmosphere. Drag yourself to 8:40 class and absorb as much of the EXCELLENT education being served up to you as you possibly can. Work your butt off. Get into the best grad school you can, or take advantage of the great employment opportunities in the tri-state area; that's why you're there. Having said that, the social life doesn't have to be bad. Go Greek, or pick an extracurricular, get really involved, and use it as your base (where you can be usually found) at the Robeson Center. Before you know it, you'll have more friends than you can handle. Study on campus (the law school library is the place to get serious studying done). Hang out with your campus friends; where you do it (campus or home towns) is not important. Go to New York as often as you can. Schedule your classes so you have one day completely off, so you can go skiing or hang out at the frat or whatever. At the end of it, you are going to find yourself competitive with the kids from all the fancy campuses, without miring yourself in debt. Best thing I ever did, going to the Rut.
