  1. I figured I would start a thread for those who will be attending Rutgers NB for their MSW since I haven't seen one yet. Looking forward to talking to some of you 🙂
  2. Hi all! I have been snooping all of the MSW posts I can find but couldn't find much about those accepted to Rutgers MSW program (New Brunswick) for Fall 2019. I was accepted and am still waiting on an award letter (reaching their financial aid department has been absolute hell), and I was wondering who else has been accepted, where else you applied, and if you were planning on joining their class of 2021! I applied to UC Berkeley (rejected), UCLA (waiting to hear back), and Rutgers, and depending on aid, may end up choosing Rutgers to be closer to family.
  3. Hello! Does anyone know anything about Rutgers American studies program? I can't find much information on their webpage and there seems to be very few entries on the results page... Is this a strong program? Is the funding good (the DGS never wrote me back when I asked what it entailed)? Also, why would there be so few entires in the results page?
  4. Hi All, I'm pretty bad at navigating this site so forgive me if this thread already exists for 2018 but I've been looking at a 2015 edition of this thread and it seemed really helpful so I figured I'd start one for this year. I'm currently trying to decide between: Rutgers: Interdisciplinary. 2 years. full ride. possibility of GA positions worth 7k a semester. #20 in US News Rankings (don't know how they do these but...) University of Florida: Arts + Technology. 3 years. full ride. 22k/year teaching fellowship (20 hrs/wk). #82 in US News. USC: New Genres. 2 years. Waiting to hear back on funding. #69 in US News. Florida State University: Interdisciplinary. 3 years. full ride. 8k/year teaching fellowship (10 hrs/wk) #69 in US News. I'm currently pretty stuck between Rutgers and UF. It's hard to ignore Rutger's stature and proximity to NY but it's also hard to ignore 22k/year in Gainesville, Florida (this would feel like a fortune) and the added bonus of a 3 year program with lots of individual attention. Any input on either the specific programs or just best modes of thinking for identifying the right school would be super appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  5. Anyone applied for the Ph.D program in Rutgers medical school in Newark? Have you get any notifications from them? I took part in the on-site interview on 23th Feb. After the interview I haven't get any notifications till now. So I wonder if anyone applied that program? BTW, I also applied for a new program named "Quantitative Biomedicine" in Rutgers. I went to visit the school at the end of Feburary and like the program above, I haven't received any emails from them. Did anyone also applied this program?
  6. I have been accepted and told I unofficially have a TA position lined up from my POI at Rutgers in the PhD program for Applied Physiology and Kinesiology. I have not heard anything else for funding or how much to expect per month. Is there a ballpark number I can at least expect per month? I'm trying to get an idea of what I can work with but I can't find any information on that program specifically (it's new --> 2014 start)
  7. Which one should i choose for MS CS: Rutgers, New Brunswick, NJ North Carolina State University,NC Which one has better internship and job opportunities??
  8. Who all are going to Rutgers this Fall (2017) for Masters in CS ?
  9. Hi, I have an admit from Rutgers University for masters in fall 2017 (AI/ML). I looked around on linked in and looks like the alumni network of Rutgers is not very strong in the field of computer science. How will it impact my job oppotunities after MS. Should I even go there ?
  10. I got accepted to the industrial engineering M.S. programs at both Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) and Rutgers University (RU), New Brunswick and I am looking to move to be near one of these school. (I assume that most classes at RU would take place at the Busch Campus in Piscataway.) I want to stay off-campus in a surrounding neighborhood, hopefully within 3 miles of campus. If I have to go by neighborhoods alone, which universities would offer better personal and home safety? I am not looking for the cheapest suggestion, as I am willing to pay a bit more for the comfort of safety, or the perceived better safety... I am always vigilant anyway. I will have a car, too. Not sure if house/car break & enter is more prominent some of these neighborhoods over the others?
  11. Hi, I am currently choosing between Columbia and Rutgers for Advanced Standing. Neither school will give me a financial package yet. Here is my problem: I don't think I want to be a social worker. I have a passion for higher education and helping first generation college students get equal opportunities. This is not the most social work related. (already heard many times I should have went for a masters of higher education degree). But I didn't. I've gone to Rutgers all 4 years and never lived in New York. My parents are very supportive of me going to Columbia (even though I don't know what's best for me). Rutgers uniquely has field placements that let me work with Rutgers students/higher education on their campus, while Columbia doesn't. However, I originally wanted to do everything I can to avoid going to Rutgers for another year. I know I want a more macro/administrative job with my degree, even though I don't know where my passion lies outside of higher education/college students. Should I try for Columbia? I read all those posts saying it isn't worth it and its just a name blahblahblah but I've been at RU for years and am definitely not passionate enough to be here an extra year. I am wondering if living in NY will give more more opportunities. Cost is an issue of course but I am trying to decide what's best for me without basing it off cost. Any insight? What does Columbia have that Rutgers doesn't?
  12. Can anyone aid me in my decision, I just need some information and other opinions. 1. University of Maryland, College Park. M.Eng in Systems Engineering. 2. University of Texas Dallas. MS Systems Engineering. 3. Rutgers Master of Information Technology (MIT) 4. Oklahoma State University MS MIS (Management of Information Systems) These are the schools I got into, and now I can't decide. a) Should I pursue Systems Engineering or Information Systems, being an international student I do not have a detailed idea of which is better as far as job prospects go, what I do know is that Systems is meant for engineers with experience and may be tough to find a job in. Can anyone confirm this? b)If Systems, is Maryland or Dallas the better option, Maryland is cheaper (as far as M.Eng goes anyway) c) Lastly, Rutgers, the program is appealing (and costly) and again the main confusion is should I pick this instead of Systems? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Hey Guys, I remember being in undergrad and sometimes feeling so distant from my peers because I was an international student. Well, here I am again on this voyage about to feel even weirder, this time as a grad student. I thought that we should have a space where we could be able to share experiences, answer questions, give advice, or just a space where you say what makes you feel ok about yourself. Good luck everyone! Disclaimer: I worked with International Services during my undergrad but this does not make me an immigration official. Although I can give my opinion on certain situations based on past experience, I recommend contacting your school directly about these questions.
  14. Does anyone know when Rutgers University makes PhD admission decisions in Linguistics?
  15. If you fail to get admission with a fellowship from Rutgers University, do not come to this department. The department is seriously underfunded. Previously, most students could get full funding and tuition remission in their second, third and fourth year if they performed well in their course and research. This year, however, most third-year, fourth-year students lost their full funding. Many of them have GPA close to 4.0. The program director said the number of funding spots is not enough in this department and the situation may remain unchanged in several years. Students in this department have to pass a very hard qualify exam at the end of the first year. They can try twice. But only those who pass at the first attempt can get full TAships in their second year. In the year 2016, 7 out of 14 students passed in the first round. 6 are Chinese and 1 is Korean. Those who passed in the second round only get funding for one semester. If you get the admission without fellowship from the department and ask the staff about you future funding opportunity, they will tell you there is a high chance for you to be funded for three years. Don't believe it. You can hardly get any money after your second year. They will show you an optimistic future to attract you only because they need enough students to open courses and make money. Don't become their cash cow! The average graduating years in this department is 6 years. If you don't have fellowship which guarantees your funding for 5 years, you will pay your tuition and living expenditure for 5 years at least. There are only 4 fellowships students in each year. So don't come without a fellowship.
  16. Does anyone know when Rutgers generally makes its admissions decisions for its PhD programs in life sciences i.e. marine science, molecular biosci, ecology and evolution, general SEBS, etc?
  17. I'm wondering just how competitive is Rutgers PsyD program? And admitted or current students here on the forum that can shed some light on the process please? It's definitely my dream school to enter but I want to strategize myself effectively and plan ahead. Would love any opinions, thanks!
  18. The Rutgers deadline says 12/1 for MS in Statistics. Does this mean 1 December 2016 or 12 January 2017?
  19. I applied to the Behavioral and Systems Neuroscience PhD at Rutgers - New Brunswick on 12/9 and was contacted by a PI over the phone was was interested in recruiting me into his lab. I came to an on-site interview with 10 other candidates, all who were applying to different labs other than the lab I would be joining. The interview went very well in my opinion, I asked specific and insightful questions and I believe I demonstrated my research experience and prowess adequately. At the end of the day, the PI told me this was the only round of interviews and that I was not competing with any other candidate for a slot in his lab, he said we would be in contact in 2 weeks time to discuss moving forward. Fast forward 1 month to March. I hadn't heard anything from him but shot him a polite email saying I haven't heard anything, but that I was wondering when I might hear a decision (I had already heard back from some other programs). No acknowledgment or response to the email. Since there are no rotations and the PIs themselves reach out to candidates, there is no 'middle-man' or 'point of contact', so it did not seem unprofessional or impolite to reach out to him after 4 weeks of no contact. Then I waited another 4 weeks and emailed the Department Chair, whom I met at the interview day and asked when I might expect to hear back. My primary concern was that I needed to know if I should renew my lease with my landlord or not since I would need to move to attend the program. It's now May 5th, my interview was 3 months ago and I haven't heard anything from anyone. My status on the website still says "No Decision" and I can't get a word from anyone in the program. Classes begin in August and I would need to move in July, which gives me less than 2 months to drastically change my life, look for apartments, quit my job, etc. I'm wondering how long I should have to wait to hear a decision about my acceptance or rejection. Not hearing anything in 3 months from the day of the interview, after it went well and was told I would hear from someone in 2 weeks, seems unusual, especially considering how most of my friends and colleagues have heard back within 3-4 weeks if they were accepted or rejected. Any thoughts or advice?
  20. Hey everyone, I wanted to start this thread because I haven't really seen much talk about people's experiences with the Rutgers MSW program. I am stuck between these 2 schools, both of which have great programs, but one is MUCH cheaper than the other. What are your opinions about going to an Ivy League school (& paying for the Ivy League name) for an MSW? Is it worth it to be (in my particular case) about $16,000 more in debt for Columbia than going to my state school of Rutgers with a great program? If anyone has experience going to school in the city, it would be nice to hear what that's like, especially since I currently go to school in New Jersey. If anyone currently goes to Rutgers, what is your experience like? Just for some background info, I am aiming to do the clinical route and would like to be an LCSW eventually. Thanks so much for any info/opinions/thoughts you may have, this decision is tough and I flip flop back and forth about which program I should choose!
  21. I have just been admitted into the Rutgers-Camden's MA psychology program. Can anyone provide any insight as to if this program is solid in preparation for a PhD program? Any insight on this program would be greatly appreciated! I also have reservations about attending school in Camden, as I am familiar with Camden's dangerous reputation. Can anyone attest to this campus' safety?
  22. Has anyone heard back from Rutgers School of Communication and information who was placed on the waiting list for the Fall 2016 semester? Was anyone accepted or rejected afterwards? Thanks for your time.
  23. Anybody heard back from Seton Hall, Rutgers, or St. Johns political science/international relations programs??
  24. I've narrowed down my decision to Rutgers vs UCLA, which is becoming one of the most difficult decisions of my life, especially after attending Rutgers' visit day recently (I'm currently an MA student at UCLA). Rutgers is home to a historian who is not only a leading expert in a Mexican indigenous language that I study, she is also an expert on this one particular obscure text that I am currently researching, and the broader genre that it's a part of. I'm 99% sure it will be part of my dissertation research, since I'm already doing my MA thesis on it, and I've spent countless hours on it. I was able to geek out with her over all kinds of little linguistic details over the visit day, which was so much fun! I've never been able to do that with anybody else, since we're one of like, maybe 6 people in the world that have looked at that text in depth. How I would love to do that on a regular basis! UCLA, however, is home to another historian who is not as skilled in that language, but is still very good with it (way better than me, certainly!), and is a huge figure in Mexican indigenous studies, though I doubt he'll have as much time to devote to me as the Rutgers prof, as even he himself admitted (though I should point out that he has still made every effort to devote as much time as possible to me during my time as an MA student at UCLA, he's a great guy). UCLA has many other professors too that are involved with Latin America, and they're hiring a new prof who specializes in Mexican indigenous history, with a 20th century focus. On the other hand, Rutgers is part of a consortium with the local Ivies that would allow me to take courses there and meet with other Latin Americanists. I know Columbia has one of the greats in my little sub-field. And the Rutgers professor is also just a little bit more chummy and friendly with me on a personal level (I met her family on visit day), and she was like that even before I applied to Rutgers, I've been in contact with her for a year or so and visited her before. Still, I have had other people tell me that I have a fantastic, enviable relationship with the UCLA prof; one fellow grad student confessed that he was jealous of how much the UCLA prof has taken a liking to me. It took me a long time earn his respect like that, and I feel I might be throwing it away by going to Rutgers. He recently said that he would allow me to contribute to a translation project with two other leading experts who will be visiting UCLA just to work on it, which shows he respects my abilities a great deal. That could possibly open doors for me, though I don't know how much they'll let me be involved with the project. Still, that won't be my dissertation, and the Rutgers prof could better help me to translate the text that I will study for my dissertation. The Rutgers professor told me that she would still be able to correspond with me and help me on my diss. project, although nowhere near as much as if I were to attend Rutgers. So the UCLA prof thinks I should just stay at UCLA and correspond with the POI at Rutgers, but I feel that there's no way of telling how much and often she will be able to help me. On the personal level, my family lives in San Diego, but my fiancée will be finishing grad school herself soon, and most of the jobs in her field are on the east coast. The weather in LA is way better, yeah, but LA kinda scares me, to be honest, and I'm a little tired of Southern California after living here in my life. New Brunswick seems like an extremely dull place, but it's close and connected to lots of interesting places that would give me a taste of something very different. It boils down to higher-ranking university (UCLA) with more professors in closely related fields vs a university that isn't too bad ranking wise (Rutgers history is #20) that has THE leading expert in the very specific niche of indigenous historical literature I want to specialize in, and is in a consortium with Ivies. Oh yeah, money-wise, Rutgers is offering me 3k more per year, though I'm a candidate for a fellowship at UCLA that would make my funding there equal to what Rutgers is offering, at least for 2 years. The bad news: they won't decide who wins the fellowship until the decision deadline, April 15th. For the record, most in my field have been telling me to choose Rutgers, on account of the prof there being the best tutor in that indigenous language that I could have. But becoming a great, employable historian takes more than just language skills. Please help! I'd appreciate any input.
  25. Has anyone heard back from NYU Wagner, University of Pennsylvania (PennDesign) or Rutgers Edward J. Bloustein School for their urban planning programs (Masters)?
