Sort of off-topic, but I've seen a lot of Rutgers-N people looking at private renting, does the school not offer residences at all? Are they poor quality? Or is it generally just wanting to be in a better location?
I just feel slightly older than the average student. I have my own apartment now, my own adult furniture, and just can't imagine going back to a suite with a kitchenette. It is more important for me to be close to the city than campus. It is definitley going to cost me to live in Hoboken or Jersey City but law school will be hard enough as is, I feel like I need some place nice to come home to. I might regret spending the money later on, not too much I hope.
If I commuted from where I live:1. Walk about 7-10 minutes to the A train2. Take A train to WTC (about 15 minutes)3. Transfer to the Path4. Take the Path to Newark Penn Station (25 minutes?)5. a. Walk through Newark b. Take the Light Rail c. After 3 PM take campus shuttle6. Arrive at Campus
