I did a quick google and found this....the number of credits does help.. http://admissions.rutgers.edu/ApplyN...Decisions.aspx
Our admissions decisions are based upon a comprehensive review of each completed application. The number of students we can admit is determined by the number of spaces available at each school or college and the quality of the total applicant pool. These change from year to year and vary from college to college within the university.
We place primary emphasis on each applicant's academic promise as demonstrated by:
strength of academic program
number of credits completed
English Proficiency Examination results
We also consider such qualitative factors as:
community, volunteer, or U.S. military service
honors and awards
Transfer students are expected to have completed specific required entrance subjects; if necessary, previous college courses may be used to satisfy high school course requirements.
