May as well introduce myself here, as this thread has been seeing a lot of action. I've deposited at R-N and probably about 95% on attending, still vaguely considering Pitt, Temple, and Brooklyn. This whole thread has been encouraging (especially Rutgers_1L) and good luck to everybody still waiting.

:P

ISA, I'm pretty sure I figured out who you are on the fb group :lol: :oops: :D.

I haven't joined yet... am going next week to visit during the day per request of my parents (will try to schedule tomorrow). They think since I only went at night my perception of the school is a little skewed. After that - and maybe another trip down to Camden - I will make a decision (barring WL's of course).

Sent my deposit in. Unless I get off the William & Mary waitlist (not likely), I will definitely be attending! Insouthamerica, I'm pretty sure I've also figured out who you are. I'm also in the FB group.

To Rutgers_1L, how much "homework" can we realistically expect each week? I'm planning on working weekends when school starts. Do you think it's feasible to get all the work done during the week or should I plan on not working all weekend to leave myself time for school work?

Thanks,

Nicky D

Same here. A bit frustrating since I've been waiting so long for a reply. Are you going to hold out? I just sent an LOCI, hopefully that will help a little. Good Luck!

not my carefully guarded anonymous identity! :lol:

i want you all to know who i am, but i gotta make ya'll work just a little bit, can't just come out and say it. i'm so obvious about it because i want future and current TLS peace corps volunteers to be able to find me. trust me, 95% of them are pretty lost and could use a been in that situation before helper.

if you like my internet personality, inSouthAmerica, then friend the real me already!
i'm sitting in this little village all alone... no pressure...

I hear you. I'm getting tired of being in limbo. :?

Good luck! Never know, you could get pulled in off the waitlist!

So with all the "I just got waitlisted!" posts not hearing anything is probably good news, right???

So I checked the website where I can check the status of my app and there is a NEW box that isn't checked on the bottom right of the screen:"Waitlist form recieved". Uggh, does this mean I'm getting waitlisted??

Sorry to break it to you, but it seems like that's the case. If you were admitted, the status would say Admitted and then on the bottom, it would say have check boxes for undergraduate transcript plus seat deposit. So I'm assuming that if that bottom right hand portion shows forms that you have yet to send in, it sounds like you were waitlisted.

Write an LOCI ASAP.

for those of you on the waitlist or still waiting, they sent out the academic calendar. i guess its available on the website, but i hadn't noticed it before.

http://law.newark.rutgers.edu/students/ ... calendar-1

now you can plan your potential life should you eventually find out you got in... and attend.

Sorry to hear Nicky + others. There should be a fair # of withdrawals so hopefully several of those spots have your names on it.

Aside from the admissions news, any1 receive a good finaid pkg (like separate from a merit scholarship)?

Thanks for posting the calendar, InSouthAmerica.

I hope I get off of the waitlist so I can join all of you in August.

So anyone know the waitlist odds? Is it like 100 to 1 or closer to 5 to 1?

i'd gamble that waitlist probabilities depend on the year.

i'd assume that because a lot of nj-staters probably use rutgers as their in-state "safety" school for much higher reaches, the economy would this year and last, probably cause people to balk at taking much higher debt loads at schools all the way up to fordham and down through american, cardozo, brooklyn, villanova, their peers, and other people's state schools (for evidence of this, the board abounds, ie. see bernie shmegma or even me). i'd gamble that therefore for rutgers both the application pool and the yield for accepted students is higher in this economy than it traditionally is, and that therefore the waitlist isn't all that promising.

on the other hand, i would bet anything that the waitlists at the aforementioned schools (other than other-people's state schools for whom the same logic applies as mine towards rutgers) are more promising than usual, as they will find people more debt-averse and their yields lower than they are traditionally.

this is running on the (probably false) assumption that the admissions people at those other schools, which i'll call the "good education, not so much value schools" don't plan for this. not being an admissions employee/expert, however, i don't know how they would plan for it.

i've re-read this post and it makes sense in my mind, so thats good enough for me.

There's always withdrawals. I've said it once and I'll say it again, if you're nearby go talk to the admissions office in person. Even Rutgers1L suggested this in a recent post.
