Where should I go next fall? / Re: Columbia vs NYU with money

If Columbia doesn't match the money, I would go to NYU. If you plan on working in the city, you'd be pretty set coming out of there, IMHO. When you visited NYU did you like it?

Yeah, I'm also waiting until the next weekend with nice weather so I can look at apartments. I don't know the area at all.

I finally decided I'm going! Anyone else?

Okkkk so let's back track:

you people do understand that ALL of hte major American cities have homeless people who come up to you consistently and ask for change?  I mean, you get this right?

We'll take Philly, Chicago, and New York (we agree these are MAJOR cities with top schools correct)?

EVERYONE of these cities has homeless people who approach you.  What do you think happens then?  They say, "please sir, spare some" and you just keep walking, ignoring them.  Haha you think they pull a gun on you?  You think they chase you and bite you?

Give me a break.


I live in the nicest part of Manhattan, considered one of the premiere areas in Manhattan for residence.  On 86th, there is a Church where homeless people sleep outside during night.  When I walk past htem at night....ummm...what happens?  oh wait, nothing happens.

For real, you people need to get out somewhere and see America.


Why are you being condescending? This is a pretty legit concern, in my book. Everyone has different priorities, and one of mine is safety. I'm admittedly sheltered and don't know if I could handle that much of an environment change.


Well now you're talking about two different things now, aren't you?  If it's a drastic environment change that's the issue, then of course I understand...but that has nothing to do specifically with Newark; you go to ANY major city it's going to be a drastic environment change.

I'm sorry to be mean...I just found it amusing and very funny that your evidence of Newark being ghetto was, "I was approached by a homeless person."

I mean, that's like saying, "yeah his new house was gorgeous...it had running water!"  Sure, if you're dead broke and in poverty, that would be pretty impressive, but generally speaking, a house with working, running water is the standard.

That's all I was saying with your comment about Newark...you gotta give me more; if being "approached" by a homeless person warrants concern, you might want to stay away from American cities, or ANY city for that matter forever.

If I could avoid cities like the plague, I would, but I'm pretty set on going to law school in-state. If my choice is Camden or Newark, I'll take Newark.

Newark is a ghost town after 5, when all the commuters leave. I visited Rutgers with my father, and 1 minute after leaving the parking deck, we were approached by a homeless woman. Additionally, it's the car theft capital of the country. For me personally, this is unsettling.





GASPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!


A HOMELESS PERSON APPROACHED YOU

she actually APPROACHED you?  You actually mean she walked towards your direction asking for change? 

oh

my



god.   


Wow...you people need to get out of middle-America. 



Um...I live 45 minutes from Newark. I just don't happen to be used to that, and I thought it was unsettling. As a 22 year-old woman, I would not feel comfortable there at night...that's all I'm saying. I'm not ignorant, but I am cautious.

23 year old male here, strapping young lad well versed in martial arts (I quite when I was 12 but I still remember a lot).

If you go to SH, look me up, I'll be your squire.  ;D

...unless you actually look like Meg from the Family Guy.

So in other words, as long as you don't leave the abandonded/evacuated section of Newark and accidentally go to the worng area, then the neighborhood is "...simply quiet and run-down...there is simply no one there...it's just empty, that's all,". The environment surrounding the school is predominantly "...some older, closed pizzerias, some crappy apts., some parking lots". That clears things up alot... and makes ti sound so much more appealing than thos slanderous comments about it being a ghetto...

C'mon man...give me a break.  Have you EVER walked around any freaking city at night?  Seriously?  You ever even walk in mid-town Manhattan at night on a weekday??  Things CLOSE and there are some bums, etc. here and there.  But there is NOBODY AROUND to bother you.  And ANY other place in America, things are dead come nightfall. 

Man where are you from, Kansas or some crap?    Haha as long as you don't "accidentally" go into the wrong area???  what are you talking about?  I'm saying if you got 20+ min. OUT OF YOUR WAY from Rutgers, you will be in the ghetto.  But you're an idiot, so why am I bothering.

Does the fact that there's nobody around tell you something? Like perhaps people are scared shitless to be outside?

A week-long Easter break? Sheesh.

Way to take their sweet ass time.
