I just spoke with an alum. I think the school is perfect for me and that is the most important thing. I am sending my deposit!

Woo-hoo! You and I are gonna be classmates!

Ha. Don't I wish that were the case. Are you describing your own idyllic life? Do me a favor and lay off the Sopranos re-runs.

Common sense will only get you so far. I agree that it's possible to attend without incident, but people really are trying to play down the nature of these cities. You live in NJ - you know what I'm talking about.

I just don't want someone to attend and then say "OMFG! HELL!"

Yeah, I know what you're talking about. And believe it or not, I've read the other Rutgers-Newark thread too and, for the record, I agree with you that most of Newark is a ghetto hellhole. Like you said though, the school campus itself is ok, and that's all I'm trying to say. IMHO, DRJJ1 was laying it on a little too thick. In any case, anyone who attends a school in a strange city without visiting first deserves whatever they get.

I'm sick of ignorant pre-law students who know nothing about Newark or Camden spouting off liberal nonsense about crime rates and minorities (see the other RU thread). There's a reason Camden is cited as the MOST DANGEROUS PLACE TO LIVE IN AMERICA. Newark isn't far behind.

Jesus, people. Visit yourself. I've been in New Jersey my entire life, and though the RU campuses are OK, everything around it is hell. You can go there if you want, but don't delude yourselves into thinking people are exaggerating. It BLOWS.

So you live in NJ. Big f-ing deal. I do too.

I never said that Newark was nice. I think it SUCKS with a capital S, but to have people believe that they'd be dodging bullets between classes is plain ridiculous. Just stay close to campus and you'll be fine. Don't go galavanting around Newark - you're not there to sightsee anyway.

In other words, use common sense!

My theory is that DRJJ1 was, much to his dismay, waitlisted at Rutgers. He's now trying to scare off admits with crazy ghetto stories so a spot will open up for him.

By the way, did any of you know that there is a serial killer running loose in Cambridge, Massachusetts? Gosh, I'm really starting to worry about those Harvard-bound folks...

It bugs me to see people like that though because these people have the brains and should be too intelligent to make comments like that. I can handle it if stupid people make homphobic and racist comments (s. XOXO), less so if intelligent ones do it.

Ah, but it is one's maturity level that determines whether or not they make offensive remarks, not one's intelligence. You are assuming that maturity and intelligence go hand in hand, but I'm afraid that is simply not so.

The open house in March is at night. If I just park my car at the school garage, and get out of there as soon as the event is finished, will I still be safe? Should I bring a guy friend with me? I know I sound paranoid. I live in the Northeast, though I have never been to Newark, but I can't recall having heard anything positive about Newark.

I bet the subway at night is pretty dangerous too isn't it? Please help me with these questions!

Call the admissions office and ask for suggestions. I personally would just take a cab back to Newark-Penn Station (fare is $5 max) and take the PATH or NJ Transit train to wherever you're staying. The PATH and NJ Transit trains are pretty safe, even at night - I haven't tried the regular subway so I can't say. If you do decide to take your car, opt for a pricier outdoor lot rather than the school's indoor garage.

RACHEL: The real question is why do you CARE? I've resigned myself long ago to the fact that some people on LSD (and don't even get me started on XOXO) are a-holes, pure and simple. It used to bug me too but now I chuckle at the thought of one day facing these clowns in a courtroom/boardroom. As Kollesch pointed out, some of these people have very little social skills, and we all know that success in the REAL world depends on getting along well with people.

.SEU.: Just out of curiosity, did your boss happen to say anything about Rutgers-Newark vs. Seton Hall? SH is the only school I feel bad about turning down.

has anyone submitted their deposits yet?

I haven't yet. No reason to do it so far in advance of the deadline.
