Do Rutgers only if it is essentially free.
i'm always anxious haha its just coming out more now ... why no to seton hall? i've heard ppl with my numbers getting scholarships that bring it down to around 20,000 a year plus I will have minimal living expenses I think I could swing it for a good price.
20K a year plus some living expenses gets to 100K in debt after interest. SH is not worth anywhere near 100K. I just see absolutely no reason to go to SH when, if you can get a SH scholarship, you can probably get some $ at Rutgers. I don't know offhand how much Rutgers costs, but I am guessing less than 20K a year in-state even if you get no $. There is just zero advantage to Seton Hall. It is more expensive. It is bigger so more kids to place. It is still in a bad NJ city. I also think the Rutgers name is more respected or perhaps they are equally regarded. What advantages do you think SH has?
Will be living at home with my parents so I won't need the full 20 k for living expenses. I feel a private institution must place better? I have heard RU does an abysmal job of placing students in private practice but a great job of placing in clerkship that lead to private practice jobs.
