    don, no way you would get in rutgers nb with a 2.2 even if your SAT was 1400/1600.

    you're guaranteed in at livingston at least with a 3.0 and a 1200.

    rank may be an issue, but it wasn't for me. i have a 3.4 and a 1260/1840 but my rank was 98/175 - at my hs we have the option of whether or not we want to list our rank, which i took advantage of. i'm being considered for a scholarship which i won't get once they see my class rank. i was accepted to douglass, livingston, and rutgers college in 3 days.

    I think I would get in then with a rank of 88/195.....tho my gpa is 3.0

    Also your school must be mad smart. 3.4 and not even in the top half. That'll get you in the top quarter at my school, though our classes are tough bc we are private, so it could be diff for you.

    I think it's funny how Rutgers is always the back up school for kids applying to more prestigious schools. I'm not gonna lie, that's the way it is for me, but I do really like Rutgers and will be happy if I end up going there.
