NJIT vs Rutgers (vs TCNJ) for NJMS BS/MD
My DD has admission to 7yr BSMD at NJMS. She has been admitted to NJIT (full-ride), Rutgers Newark ($24k/yr cost) & TCNJ ($42K/yr cost, though she might get merit aid of ~$20K). We're not considering TCNJ strongly because of cost. Also, she is more familiar with big city atmosphere vs TCNJ's small campus, hopes to do research at Rutgers from first year, and likes the NJ neighboring areas (outside of inner city) for their eateries and quick access to NY. She hopes to have friends at TCNJ to hang out with from time to time, and is ok not going to school there if we can give her the money instead :)
Concerns we (parents) have for NJIT are quality of school (is it ok?) and high male:female ratio (is that a problem?). We're fine paying the $24k/yr for Rutgers if that is significantly a better UG to go to. DD's point is:
isn't it right across the road from NJIT? how much advantage will I have specifically enrolled in Rutgers vs enrolled in NJIT with access to Rutgers (and money in my pocket)?
Would you please share your thoughts on this?
