In the Rutgers application, it asks you to list three schools/majors you're interested in. Do they consider you for all three schools at once and have you decide which you'd like to go to if you attended, or do they simply go down the list if you're rejected from your first choice?

    If I remember correctly, they consider you for all the schools you have put down and then you decide which one of the schools you were accepted to that you'd like to attend.

    It's not in order of importance?
  • sofiesofie Registered User Posts: 608 Member
    I don't think it makes a difference what order you list the schools in.
    You get considered for all three.

    They ask you to list the 3 schools that you wish to apply for, but if my heart is really set on jus tthe New brunswick campus can i put that school for all 3 choices? & will i still be considered for all 3 even if i do put new brunswick for all 3?

    If you put New Brunswick, you'll only be considered for New Brunswick. Not for Newark. Not for Camden. Just New Brunswick =)

    When I applied, I just put New Brunswick - School of Arts and Sciences. I believe I left the last 2 drop boxes blank.

    Angel - New Brunswick campus has a lot of schools on it.
    If you're only interested in NB, just choose up to three schools from there.

    (All the good ones are there ;) )
