I will be withdrawing this week- freeing up 18k/year along with my spot. It came down to Rutgers vs. UConn for me and it was really rough decision to make, but I ended up choosing UConn. Good luck to everyone and congratulations to those who are headed to RU-Newark this fall! :D

Just out of curiosity; is there anything in particular that made you choose one over the other? Oh, and please tell the fine folks at UConn admissions to please send me a decision :)

Good Luck!

It honestly came down to considering where I want to practice, and also the campus visits, where UConn really trumped Rutgers. I really do feel that the schools are equally matched in terms of job prospects in their respective regions, so for me it mostly was about choosing which region I wanted to live in.

I really had no idea which school to choose until I visited both campuses, but the correct choice for me was really obvious afterwards. :)

Good Insight- I have not visited UConn but am somewhat familiar with the area. If I get in, I will try and visit before I send Rutgers my $. Location is big for me too...but I guess I would rather be right outside NYC than in Hartford...but if they ever let me know if I am in or not...it will be a tough decision (along with Temple, if I get in there).

Thanks, guys, and good luck to you too! The people on this thread seem awesome so I'm sure Rutgers-Newark class of 2013 will rule. Also, I hope my scholarship is offered to one of you!

Anyone going to the small group next Monday? Also, for anyone who has been to one of these so far, are they worth it? I'm undecided between Rutgers and one other school and could use a good experience there to help sway me in that direction.

I went last week and it was very very very good.

Burger - I know UConn was your first love so I'm not shocked they swayed you over Rutgers. UConn has an extremely strong program and I'm sure it's a really awesome school. Congrats on your decision :).

So I've been deferred for some time now. The possiblity of getting in-state tuition (as opposed to paying sticker or close to sticker at my other private school choices) is looking really attractive.

Should I go visit as a way of expressing interest?

I was deferred 1/21/10, so a real decision should be coming any day now...

I would definitely visit, it'll give you an edge over the other deferred candidates. I'm doing the same thing at another school.

In today via email! SOOO happy. No mention of a scholarship in the initial email and Camden offered some $. Either way- I can live at home and attend Newark so the scholarship at Camden does not sway me TOO much.

I don't really see a major difference between the two to make me pay more for Camden.

One more month. Some of us need a bit more deliberation. I, personally am admittedly very close to where you're head is at though.

Do it...I am like...99% at this point. For some reason UConn and Temple are holding out on me. I am kind of over CT, and while I like Philly, Newark is just more convenient.

Yeah lets make a facebook group ya'll!

I decided on newark as well, I'll join. And yes I'm planning on buying RU gear after the open house. When is the right time to put the sticker on your car?

My status just changed to "Decision Rendered" but it doesn't say what the decision is and no email yet. Is that a bad sign?

Probably not...I am sure they will email you either way. I know your online status check does not tell you what the decision is. I am sure the email will come shortly. Good luck and fingers crossed it is good news!

I wish I was going to have a car to put a sticker on! BTW if anyone is interested in a 2007 Dodge Nitro PM me. It will be available for viewing on the 26th. :)

Maybe I will throw a sticker on my boyfriend's car.
