I've always had this thing against Rutgers and anyone that went there... I know that is pretty bad but its the truth. Ive always been stubborn, being among the top in my class, that I want to go to (and deserve) a top/prestigious university for the amount of effort i put into school.
Well now that I've realized my chances to a great school are slim Im starting to consider Rutgers. It would probably be a free ride for me. Even without that its only 12,000. (as opposed to 60,000) There seem to be a lot of smart kids there and I could invest in renting a nice house near campus and put the rest of the money away.
My problem is that most kids that dont work very hard go to Rutgers, many people look down on it, I dont know how great the education is, and the honors program is just priority with classes and housing. It is usually a safety/last resort college for people in NJ. Your opinion?
