I applied around march 15 and heard from them about 3 weeks later.  They offered me nice $$ but I had to turn it down as it looks like I will be staying in the NYC area and can't move upstate right now.

thanks for all the responses.  I think rutgers gets my vote for this one.  Now just found out I am WL at Fordham.  Not sure what I will do if I get in.

Before I started the whole process I thought it may come down to Rutgers vs. Fordham.

Just found out I am WaitListed on Fordham.  If I get in, I am not sure what to do.

My situation - I am an older student (33 in fall), work full time and will be going PT.

Fordham is literally 3 blocks from my work.

Rutgers gave me some $$ and will be $18,000 LESS per year.

Fordham obviously is a much better ranked school, and is closer.  Is it worth $18,000 more per year?

I have liked all my communications with Rutgers.  They seem to be very approachable and responsive. 

More things to think about ... aghhh.

just for sake of the accuracy.  Main difference in Celeron M is half the onboard cache
and lacking speed stepping and sleeping technology built into the Pentium M.

Biggest difference you will see is shorter batter life by around 15-20%. 

(don't know why I feel the need to defend Celeron - but as an IT person I like to keep the facts straight).

For people in law school running Word and browsing the Internet it doesn't really matter.  These are not processor intensive tasks.

I am not saying a celeron is preferable, but it is not a ticket to doom either.

new mobile celerons aren't that bad.  not the same as the celeron of a year ago.  Plus for running MS Office it is more than adequate.  I would make sure to have at least 512 meg of RAM.

IBM X30 headed my way next week.
