Wow, our numbers are fairly similar, too! Good luck this cycle!

Thursday, March 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

Our numbers and schools are pretty similar. Good luck in your cycle!!

Except for cardozo, gw, and cornell, you have to be nuts not to take the Rutgers deal over all other schools on your list, especially if you want to stay in the Jerz. I guess SH can always put an offer on the table, but scholly's are renewable at 3.3, whereas RU is 3.0, a GPA you may not want to mess around with.

Yeah, for some reason I kind of like the idea of Newark better, but the rankings whispering "Camden" Haha. Well, good thing there's plenty of time to decide. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

I think you and your dad are right! At least I hope so, because Newark wants to give me more $. :)

Thursday, March 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

congrats on your acceptances!!

Thursday, January 07 2010 at 07:00 PM

We have pretty similar statistics! Just wondering how much you got from Rutgers, and don't you think the 3.5 requirement is a little crazy? From what I've heard it's pretty difficult to ace 1L classes there. Congrats on all of your acceptances!

Buffalo

Just wondering if your scholarship info from buffalo came in the same letter that your acceptance did?

Not Even a Decision
Tuesday, September 15 2009 at 08:00 PM

Rutgers for sure.

Thursday, March 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

where are you thinking about attending? villanova sure is taking their time with your app haha :)

Haha, Seton Hall was a fee waiver that I threw in. I hope my cycle goes something like yours. Particularly Buffalo!

Just thought you'd like to know...
Sunday, November 08 2009 at 07:00 PM

... I decided on UConn after all- they offered me a great scholarship. I also visited Rutgers and it didn't feel like the right place for me at all. Anyway, thanks for your advice, and best of luck!

Kent Deferred Updated Decision
Tuesday, November 24 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on Rutgers! I was wondering how Kent informed you that your application went from being "Deferred" to being "Accepted." Did they update it online? Or did you have to call them? My application is still deferred and I am dying to get a response! Thanks!

I just magically got an email from them saying i was accepted and a few days later got the acceptance packet, no work required on my end.

That's awesome! Well good luck in the future, thanks for getting back to me.
