    not sure if my reply will be of much use anymore, but now that the semester's officially over, why not.

    i think i'm going to end this semester with a 3.5 gpa, and i'm currently a freshman at a 4-year university trying to transfer into the rutgers school of engineering. i've been hella nervous about it because i already got rejected once in my senior year of high school. and i've also been hearing that they don't even read your essay... how true is that?

    I'll be applying to SAS and RBS at both Newark and NB. Not gonna get my hopes up with RBS seeing as I have a 3.3 but hopefully I can get into SAS.

    @sahilp3 The average transfer GPA of SOE as of last year was a 3.4-3.9 where so a 3.5 would probably put you around the 25th percentile of accepted applicants. If you can, try to raise your gpa. On that note, I know a transfer to this year who had a 3.25 gpa

    @sahilp3 if you don't mind me asking why are you transferring to Rutgers when it seems NJIT would be a 'better' school as far as your major goes?

    Hey guys! Just found out today at 5:00am I’ve been accepted into both SAS and SMLR. My major is offered through both schools so I applied to both just in case j didn’t get into SAS. Now I’m stuck with which to accept.

    STATS
    I attend a State University in NJ
    My Fall GPA was a 3.5 but my cumulative is a 3.3. If you factor my community college GPA which was only 3 classes , it brings my total transfer GPA down to 3.0 . I think my essay , and resume is what help me get into SAS. I explained why Idid bad in the one semester of community college (personal reasons) and outlined my work history and my service to country (I am a vet) . Also I’ve only gotten one C at my current school (it was during the hurricane). But my grade trend is pretty consistent of only A’s and B’s .

    @sahilp3 yes it should raise your chances significantly. I am pretty sure SOE only looks at GPA

    I applied to RBS and SAS (both New Brunswick). I am transferring from Kutztown University (4 year school). I ended my first semester with a 3.8. Do I have a good chance at getting in? and When can I expect to hear back?

    I don't think so because my application has been in for at least 2 months now. I think it's in random order..I really hope I get into at least one of the schools.

    I applied back in September. They told me they wanted my fall grades , so I sent my updated transcript on December. So It took a month and half after sending my transcript for a decision. I still didn’t hear back from Newark or Camden. Funny how NB was the first to respond when they are the hardest.

    I applied on January 29th for the Rutgers at brookdale social work program. I’m not sure how the admission process is for that particular location. I was told via e-mail by the admissions office that decisions would be sent out no later than April 15th.... I really hope i won’t be waiting until then to find it... I was already accepted to Stockton for the fall but Rutgers is my first choice.

    My gpa is 3.6.. I’m taking 12 credits this semester so my grades and gpa should only increase significantly.

    Anybody else register for Instant Decision Day at NB? I applied to RBS and SAS on January 3, sent in my supplemental info on January 10, still have not heard back. Will be hearing back when I go for Instant Decision Day on Feb. 11. I am a freshman and will finish 28 credits by the end of this semester and my GPA last semester was a 3.7. I am nervous to hear back but would find it odd to go all the way there and meet with someone and then have them tell me I did not get in. Just going based off what I think, haven't heard of anyone who has done the Instant Decision Day yet so I don't really know what to expect.
