However, that is with the caveat of it not being a choice. If it comes down to adding a hospital in New Brunswick or keeping Camden, McCormick is basically saying that Camden is an acceptable loss. As far as the New Brunswick campus is concerned, he is correct. Update: McCormick says the New Brunswick merger will cost $40 million. That cost is definitely worth it though if it means jumping Rutgers from 56th in the nation in R&D dollars to 32nd. It is hard to understate how much good is about to happen on the flagship campus. Even UMDNJ supports the merger now!
