  • Re: Has all Rutgers Honors College invites gone out ? Merit Scholarships?

    I received an honors college invitation for SAS about a week ago and just received an invite for SoE today.
  • Re: Rutgers Honors College Decisions

    @Celtic12 @Njmom224
    This is what is currently on the Honors College FAQ page (https://honorscollege.rutgers.edu/information/frequently-asked-questions)

    "What will happen to my Honors College membership and scholarships if I change schools after I’m enrolled at Rutgers?

    A student’s Honors College membership continues as long as he or she meets the minimum academic requirements and remains a student in good standing with the Honors College. That remains the case if the student transfers to a different school at Rutgers-New Brunswick. However, students who seek to change schools after enrollment cannot be guaranteed continued receipt of their scholarship. Each student’s petition will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by both the dean of the school to which the student wants to transfer, as well as by the deans of the Honors College."

    So it seems that you may be able to switch to Engineering after enrollment into Honors College SAS but I'm not sure how long you would have to wait. If it's based on meeting "the minimum academic requirements," I would guess that it would be a year after you've been in SAS.

    I have the same problem. Accepted to HC SAS but my first choice of major is Mechanical Engineering. I thought I had pretty good chances of getting into HC for the School of Engineering but I guess I didn't. So if I do decide to go to Rutgers, I may want to switch schools and stay in HC if possible.
  • What type of engineering is architecture?

    I'm in high school and I'm really interested in pursuing a career in architecture. However, I'm not really sure I REALLY know what it is. My question is what type of engineering is architecture? From what I've read about different types of engineering, it seems to fall under civil engineering but I've also read that civil engineering has most to do with the physics of making a building stand up rather than the design of the building. Also, I've heard that architecture is not an engineering but actually fine art? But then I've also heard that it IS an engineering and I'm becoming more confused as I research. So, I'd really appreciate if someone would clear this up for me.
