oh wow...thanks, i didnt know you could do that. If i take PT classes during the day, will I be with full time students? or is there another PT section? Also, whats your schedule like? I heard it was monday-wed the first semester which seems very enticing, and mon-thurs the 2nd..is that the same for PT day students?

Yeah, I've heard the same about Hoboken...that the commute is a pain... and thanks for the feedback, i checked out the website and it helped a lot!

Anyone interested in starting a SH facebook group?  I guess it'll be more active when we get closer to the start of school but I'm in the process of closing (hopefully) a deal in Newport for a 2bedroom, and my and my friend are planning on moving in the summer to check out the area and get out of our boring nj town...sooo anyone else who might move up early, it'll be nice to chat about where we're all living, etc etc

I've been looking into Jersey City as well. It has some really nice areas, I esp liked the Newport area.. it's pretty expensive though. And I think the commute differs depending on what part of JC you live in, but from what I hear the longest is like 20 mins or so.

Also, Hoboken is definitely really nice. I was just there this wknd and there's so much to do and it's really cute. It's also more expensive than JC, even the nicer parts of JC i think, and a longer commute to school-- I think you have to take the light rail and then switch to the Path? or something like that where you have to switch trains.. so you may want to do a test-run and see how it feels

I've decided on Seton Hall, and have visited Jersey city and hoboken the last two weekends...and while Hoboken is really great, I've really fallen in love with the newport area of JC, they are both pricey though.. does anyone know how long the commute is from the Exchange Place/Newport path station in JC to Newark penn station?

The commute time varies significantly on the time of day.  The trains are infrequent at night, so you'll spend more time waiting if you don't ride during rush-hour (although you will probably enjoy the ride a lot more without someone's elbow in your face).  I think the ride itself is fairly short, 15 minutes or so.

haha thanks! and what do you mean the trains are infrequent at night? I'm not too familiar with the Path but i thought it ran on set schedule like every 15 mins or so?  I'm stuck in the PT evening section (which wud be fine if thats what I applied for haha) soo I guess I will be going into Newark from Exchange Place around 5..Also, I heard the commute from Journal sq to newark is around 15 mins? and that from exhcange place to journal sq was around 15 mins too, making the trip around 30 mins...is this true? I didn't think it was because i didnt think JC was that big or that the paths were that far from each other but I did hear it from someone semi-familiar with the area...  any feedback wud be great :)

I also paid 1st deposit to Seton Hall, although I am still waiting on couple other schools.  How much are the average rent price in Jersey City and/or Hoboken area?  Anybody looked into those school-sponsored apartments nearby the school?


The average rent varies in both JC and Hoboken... Hoboken seemed pretty pricey throughout, but I dont know really bc I researched JC more. Im fortunate enough to still be financially supported by my parents, so I've been looking into the Newport area of JC-- which is expensive ...like for a 2bedroom rent is in between 2-3000... but there are other areas that are supposedly nice (havent travelled into them tho) like Paulus Hook, Hamilton Park, Van Vorhst Park, Grove Street... and then there's definitely places to stay away from which I hear are like The Heights and Journal Square (altho I hear this is getting better). I'm not an expert on the area at all, just my two cents because I've been looking recently.. I'd suggest you go on craigslist.com and look for apts, there are new ones popping up there all the time. I also looked at the apts near the school in newark, and the 1180 building was really really nice but again expensive. It didn't feel like you were part of Newark at all haha...and the other building was just okay but a more reasonable price.. either way, I'm not too much of a fan of living in Newark, i'm not sure how many students actually live there either, im guessing its mostly first year

awesome, where are you both thinking of living?? and any of you going PT? I was accepted pt evenings, which I'm not excited about, but at least transferring to FT is supposedly pretty easy
