    I think you can apply; I'll confirm it tomorrow with the Dean if you want.

    you don't have to be NJ resident, but they take 80% NJ residents, so its gonna be tough

    Also, there is really no point in going to any of the NJ programs if your out of state because from what I have heard the undergrad schools arent that great and not really that prestigious medical prog/college. The only benefit is low tuition for in staters.
  • PipingHotTofuPipingHotTofu Registered User Posts: 572 Member
    well of course, they're not gonna be like brown or northwestern, but the programs aren't that bad...and even for out of staters, the price isn't as big as some of the other schools....
  • Aspen DAspen D Registered User Posts: 1,485 Senior Member
    matrix..if someone wants to apply...let him/her. Don't be so competitive.
  • hydrogen3khydrogen3k Registered User Posts: 281 Junior Member
    Yes, apply. But there is a certain preference for in-staters (like most state medical schools). Yet, the 80% in staters could be a result for most applicant being instaters.

    "matrix..if someone wants to apply...let him/her. Don't be so competitive."

    im not being competitive, im being realistic, anyways im not applying to rutgers since thats the most competitive undergrad feeding for the NJ program

    Its pretty hard to get accepted into state school programs if you out of state, because the state schools take a high majority of instaters since those are the people that are paying the taxes (DUH!). Also, im giving my personal opinion because I have actually been to most of the campuses in NJ, and I would rather go to any other program instead of NJ since the college life is not too great, if I even get in.

    Granted, the UMDNJ program is not Northwestern, but it is still a solid program. Keep in mind that there is no MCAT score requirment, you just have to sit for the test.

    Yes, NJ schools are not going to win the most beautiful and luscious (sp?) campus award but they are still great schools (they, referring to TCNJ, Drew, Stevens, Rutgers). If you're a senior in HS, I wouldn't even be talking right now (unless you have a 2300+ sat score or won the intel science award or something).

    "If you're a senior in HS, I wouldn't even be talking right now (unless you have a 2300+ sat score or won the intel science award or something)."

    What does that have to do with anything^^^^ does that mean if I get a 2300+ I can tell you to shut up?

    I've been to most of those campus and know lots of people that went there so I can comment on how they look and how the campus life is. Jeez, just because I am a high school senior, I can't say anything...how narrow-minded can you be?
