Current Law Students / Re: Rutgers State
« on: May 11, 2006, 08:00:52 AM »
I'm starting at Rutgers-Newark this fall. I have a very good feeling about it. Yes, it's in Newark, but it's also a commuter school. You just need to park in the garage, walk to class, then walk back. Nobody will send you wandering the streets of Newark...
As far as other things go - it's relatively cheap. I know that I will appreciate not having the obnoxious debt. I am also looking for practical experience, and Rutgers offers that. I also want to study abroad, and Rutgers offers that as well. And most importantly, although people always find something to complain about, I heard a lot of positive feedback about the professors, and that speaks volumes to me!
I'm pretty excited! :)
Good luck to all!

I actually think I saw Starbucks on Broad street... fairly close to the school. Maybe I'm wrong - but I'm pretty sure I saw it. Is there a Starbucks locater? :)))

Where are you, guys, going to live?

Personally, I have never seen anything worse than Newark. Honestly. (Although there are many buildings with really nice architecture; I haven't seen anything similar in the States yet).
I like that the law school building is nice. Trying to focus on the positive aspects at this point. Too tired of worrying about Newark.

... and that's the great thing about RU-N. The fact that it's in Newark tends to urge people to research the school itself. I have spoken with quite a few people who attended it, and they had nothing negative to say about it except for "don't venture too much out into Newark"...

I am really happy with my decision - no "buyer's remorse" for me :)

Nothing reasonable probably. I've asked other people who went to RU-N, and everyone says it's fine. So I am just going to believe that for now. Are there usually a lot of people around even in the evening?
You starting in the fall?

I'm going part-time. Classes in evening first year.
I think I'm scared now.

:) I don't believe you :)))
I have to think that it will be fine. Newark is horrible.
There are garages right by the law school also - can the students use those?

I will be commuting to school in the fall. Most of northeastern NJ, in my opinion, is a junk yard, but there is an invisible line that separates that junk yard from western/southern NJ it seems. The campus didn't impress me, but I liked that there is a garage where only Rutgers students may park and that the law school building houses the lecture halls, clinics, library, in other words, everything that you need without having to venture out into Newark.
I hope it will be fine...

Is anyone fairly certain about Rutgers in the fall? If so, where are you going to live?
