    I'm not sure but ther're supposed to contact us for an interview pretty soon. This program used to be a cake to get into but now there's so much competition that people with 1500's are rejected. Good luck to all!

    Rubens, did you submit a resume? How many teacher recs did you submit? I chekced my Rutgers application status and they didn't post the reciept of the materials I sent them.

    By the way, my SAT score is lower than yours so don't sweat it.

    u guys.....u get a 1500 and are looked at the same way as a 1590 applicant (1600s must get some special attention tho, u know? lol). i'd say even a 1450-1480 makes you "competitive" (whatever that means anymore lol).

    You should have received an email from Rutgers, Neward campus that your file is complete. I received an email on Dec.17(last Friday).

    mail4nrs, can you please log into your Rutgers status screen and tell me what it says under "documents recieved".

    I sent my transcript in with the portfolio to Mrs. Godino and didn't bother to send another transcript directly to the RU admissions center. What did you do?

    I suggest you to call Christina Godino. I received an email from her thet your BA/MD portfolio is complete and will be reviewed by BA/MD committee.

    On rutgers application status - It says congratuations! you have beed admitted to regular undergraduate admission. They also send the scholarship information with the admitted letter. On application status screen, it says 'document received' - SAT score and under 'Item still required' - Final HS Transcript. If you need Ms. Godino's contact number then please let me know.

    Yes, I do need her number. I don't want it to come to a situation where they will be unable to review me.

    Mrs. Godino called me yesterday and said that they had all my infor but didn't have my e-mail address... so they couldn't do anything to e-mail me. I was relieved. Let's hope all of us get in!
