So do you think it's it safe to assume that if we received our acceptance letter+email from Rutgers-Newark and haven't heard anything in ~1 week, that we don't qualify for any merit-based aid? :oops:

Unfortunately, thats probably true. I think if you were awarded aid you would be sent an email immediately following your acceptance email and would probably also be something about it in your packet that you receive shortly after

So, i got a super late start this cycle and just sent my application in, hope it doesn't kill my chances. For those who already got their FD, did you find out within a 6-8 week time frame or faster/later?

stats-
URM, decent softs, 3.8 / 163

Does Newark offer a summer 'JumpStart' program like Camden does?

I got in (part time) this week with numbers less than yours. Applied 2/25.


Anyone know where to find info on establising NJ residency to get in state tuition? Thanks

Rutgers in-state tuition, super easy! Just depends how many credits you complete a semester, for a better explanation:
Right here, mate.

I went to Rutgers Newark my first year of law school, my friends from out of state all got in state tuition.

That information isn't regarding residency for tuition purposes. It's about graduation requirements.

Touché!! I still stand by my latter statement, though. I tried looking some more info on the web but can't find anything related at all to residency for tuition purposes to back up my anecdotal evidence. The only other thing I can provide is that all my friends had to move into an NJ address before the first day of class (this was 2011) to receive in state tuition. If you want more info and don't feel like dealing with the school I can ask them more information today, just let me know vl.

vlshort3955, what are your numbers? if you don't mind me asking. I applied for the part-tie program as well and my status is file read- no decision.

From reading posts from previous years, it appears to be easy to obtain in-state tuition rates. I think if you sign a 12-month lease somewhere in NJ before classes start, you can be eligible for in-state tuition.
