Bill's Town, High School, and Downtown seem to have the worst spawns for me, but I've been noticing it in University too.
At University I spawned at the supply box near the empty water fountain, and 2 guys spawned at in front of the building to the left of it.
This never happened before 1.02, so ND must have messed something up in the process of creating 1.02

Spawn are messed up for sure, I was in a match yesterday, wanting to test my stealth skills against a party, and voila, the moment i spawned the whole enemy team was right there in front waiting to beat the **bleep** out of everyone, they knew exactly where the whole team will spawn and were already there, and in some cases at the same exact spawn point.
This happened in Checkpoint map, so yeah spawns are definitely messed up, people are already expoliting them.

Here's what I've seen happening EVERY time I've died and/or spawned with knowledge of enemy locations on the map.
Dead player spawns as far as possible from as many of the enemy team as possible. It's that simple.
If the enemy team has 3 guys standing literally right on top of a spawn location, and there's another spawn location at the opposite side of the map with their last teammate standing next to it, you're going to spawn on that guy.
I've been in a game where both teams were engaged in a full 4-on-4 encounter in the corner of the map. I died first (because I'm awesome) and respawned in the opposite corner of the map. I moved to the nearest supply box, opened it, collected some supplies, then saw the telltale flash of a guy sprinting towards my position. I hid, waited for him to run past on the same route I had taken, and stabbed him in the back. As I laid the guy down, I got stabbed in the back because the other enemy who died and hit the same respawn timer had also spawned next to me, because I was next to the spawn point that's furthest from the majority of my team.
