Rutgers-Camden political science majors have successfully followed a number of different career paths. These options include: law degrees, graduate study in political science; professional degrees in public administration and public policy; government service; work for political organizations or legislators at the local, state, and national levels; and teaching.
Undoubtedly, the largest single group of our students are pre-law. Although there is no requirement that law applicants major in a particular field of study, historically political science attracts a huge proportion of students who intend to pursue their juris doctor degree. At Rutgers-Camden, Dr. G. Alan Tarr of the Political Science Department is the campus pre-law advisor and teaches most of our law-related courses.
In recent years, the number of lawyers in the United States has increased dramatically. In 1990, for example, American law schools had enrollments of almost 130,000 students and graduated over 35,000. The rapid increase in lawyers, together with shifts in the American economy, have made it difficult for some law school graduates to find jobs as lawyers.
Law schools differ little in their curricula. Some law schools Harvard, Yale, Michigan, Stanford are nationally recognized as the elite of legal education. They draw exceptional students from across the nation and place their graduates in jobs across the nation. A second tier of law schools among then, New York University, George Washington, and Northwestern likewise draws and places students nationally.A third group of law schools Rutgers, Temple, and Villanova are local examples can be classified as regional law schools. They for the most part attract students from the region and place them in that region. (Thus, if you are attending a regional law school, you should choose one in the area in which you hope to practice.) A final group of law schools Widener is a local example might be labelled weaker regional law schools. These tend to be the least selective law schools in terms of admissions.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

The two most important factors in admissions decisions are your score on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and your undergraduate GPA, usually in that order. Letters of recommendation from professors, extracurricular activities that show unusual commitment or leadership, and personal factors also play a role in admissions. For admission to Rutgers Law School (Camden), one ordinarily needs an LSAT score that ranks you in the top 1/3 of all those taking the LSAT and a grade point over 3.2.
No work experience is required.
