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?

I used rent.com and apartments.com. Also have a few apartment books for NJ.

Try apartments.com, it's pretty good.

I will be attending Rutgers-Newark as well. Not in NJ right now, but am looking. So far, the nicest place I have seen was Montclair. I am thinking about living in that area... possible Berkeley Heights, but have not visited there yet.

As far as commuting goes, I understand that the train system is a pretty good one. Perhaps it's worth it to look into that before finding an apartment.

Good luck everyone! I'm definately very excited :)

Congrats!
You're right, you did mention the profs. Thanks.
I am really looking forward to starting in August!!!

How did you find the 'first year" professors?
Also, just based on the experience you had so far, would you say that the people are fairly friendly? I understand that most are "competitive", but is there still a strong sense of community?
Thanks again!

Thanks for great info!
I am curious about your commute. You said you take a train - do you feel safe doing that? Also, are you renting a place? My husband and I area looking for a place in NJ right now, and I am a little sceptical about places around Newark.
