Just got acceptance email!!!!!!!!! really pumped, not to be overzealous, but when can I expect to hear about scholarship? Numbers are 3.3x 160 (non URM, instate) so I think it should warrant something... maybe.

EDIT: Because I am dumb

If by 'sponsorships' you mean scholarships, they come in your acceptance packet, which you should receive in the mail in a few days. Congratulations!

Anyone start looking for apartments in or around Newark. I haven't looked hard, but from what I see they very expensive for not that great of places. And I haven't been able to find much. Does anyone know if Rutgers has a resource for off campus housing?

Everything within view of Manhattan's light pollution is expensive.

You should check out apartments in towns like Clifton and Montclair. They're definitely going to be cheaper than Hoboken. I have a friend who paid about $700/month for an apartment in Clifton.

Thanks, I was hoping to live in Newark out of laziness but this is probably the best bet.

TCR. I live in a studio in Clifton and pay $750/mo which includes heat and water. For people who live outside of NJ, this still seems really expensive. Before NJ I owned a duplex in PA. Each side was six bedrooms, 1.5 bath. My mortgage was $1150/mo. and I rented out the other side for $950/mo. So yeah, even $750/mo for a studio in NJ feels a bit dirty.

hi Onion,

I don't know if it means anything, but I have VERY similar numbers to you (I am out of state) and I have not recieved anything about scholarship money (I was accepted last week). Here's hoping it's on the way!

There are some decently priced places in South Orange, so that's another place to look (probably comparable to Montclair/Clifton and slightly closer to the school).

:shock: I'd way rather live in Newark than in EO. EO isn't safe and there isn't anything to do there.

in all seriousness though... were all pretty screwed looking for affordable housing - for more suburbia-like stuff maplewood, monclair, chatham, morristown... for more urban, ironbound, jersey city, hoboken... its all the same though, crazy loot everywhere. i probably actually will commute from dover.

I haven't really begun to look at housing options yet since I haven't decided if I am definitely attending Rutgers, but what kind of rent have you seen in the suburban areas? I have the option of commuting from home (on the border of West Orange and Verona), but I would rather not.

If it was me, I'd stay at home. You won't find anything better/closer and the cost savings would be worth it.

Has anyone emailed the admissions staff this cycle and recieved a reply? I emailed them about three weeks ago and so far have heard nothing.

I haven't emailed admissions, but I did go complete today! :mrgreen:

It took forever for them to get my certification letter!

Is there anything after "complete" as far as the status checker goes? Been complete for over a month and wondering if I should bother with the status checker every day, or if decision will come by e-mail/snail mail. Sorry if this has already been posted. . . about 8 pages of posts here and I got a little lazy about reading through all of them.

According to this thread, the status will change to "decision rendered" and an email will follow.

I didn't even use the status checker on this one...they just sent me an email (fairly quickly...less than a month after going complete). Just keep an eye out on your email. I still have not heard from 14 of the 20 schools I applied to. Rutgers was one of the first ones.
