    I got in today! I was accepted to the SAS-Math and School of Engineering.
    I have a 3.80 GPA. My boyfriend was accepted too as well. I think a lot of us are hearing back today?

    ^ Congrats! Did you apply before the Priority deadline or no? Also, do you know what your boyfriend's GPA is? Thanks!
  • ScorpioserpentScorpioserpent Registered User Posts: 208 Junior Member
    I had all my stuff in about a week before the priority. My boyfriend did too, but didn't get his highschool transcript in until about a week after. He has a GPA higher than mine, around a 3.9. He's also for engineering. We got these emails from Rutgers asking us to join a group for accepted people.
    Good luck to everyone!

    I transferred last fall, but I can't remember if I read anything about this before, so I'll ask here!

    My boyfriend applied before the deadline to SAS, but has been having trouble with one of his previous schools regarding his transcripts (saying he's owed them money, but he never heard of it before and was able to request transcripts when he transferred just last year with no problem).

    I know they can't fully consider him until all the paperwork is received, but do you think the delay is enough to reject him? We moved so we are not close enough to the trouble-causing school to just stop by to talk to someone, but I know this is the next step. Thanks!

    Again, I transferred last fall into SAS so feel free to ask me questions!

    ^For transfers, how do you get housing and when do you apply? I've heard that housing isn't easy to get, and if I can't get on campus housing, I cannot attend Rutgers.
  • thatsthekeythatsthekey Registered User Posts: 304 Member
    I live off campus, but all the transfers I met were able to get housing. I believe you apply in April - make sure you check the deadline though and get the app in immediately, then you shouldn't have any problems. Most transfers were put in New Gibbons on Cook this past year, but a few people I met were in Rockoff, which is one of the nicest places.

    The information will be on your enrollment pathway.

    im transferring from lehigh to rutgers, but ive only got a 2.6 gpa. do you think i have a chance?
  • ScorpioserpentScorpioserpent Registered User Posts: 208 Junior Member
    I got the big envelope in the mail with the certificate and all....
    but are they going to send my credit evaluation? This is definately a deal breaker...it determines whether I'll graduate in 2 years or 3.

    Scorpioserpent how did you hear so soon from new brunswick? When did you apply?
    I applied around January 10 and i have only heard back from newark. I am transferring from a CC with a 3.54 gpa and got a 620 in critical reading and a 580 in math on my sats. Should i be fine for new brunswick? I applied for School of Arts and Science and School of Environmental and Biological Science because i heard it was easier to get into.

    I applied before the deadline for New Brunswick SAS, SEBS, and engineering. I transferred to OCC from University of Vermont with a 2.75 with around 30 credits. At OCC I had a 3.8 for the fall 2009 semester and currently taking classes now. In high school i had around a 3.7 and my sats were 520 cr and 630 math.
    HS- 3.7
    UVM- 2.75
    OCC- 3.8
    Math- 630
    CR- 520
    Writing- 560

    Anybody have an idea of what kind of chance i have?
  • ScorpioserpentScorpioserpent Registered User Posts: 208 Junior Member
    I don't know why I heard back early. I applied a week before the priority. But my letter of admission I got in the mail along with the certificate/black folder was dated Feb 10.

    Maybe the majors I applied for had a lot of spots. (NB Engineering - Electrical Engineering, SAS-Math)
  • ScorpioserpentScorpioserpent Registered User Posts: 208 Junior Member
    ^Both of you guys have good enough GPAs. I think you guys will get in. I might have gotten in early because I had a kinda high GPA for engineering, but idk.

    Hi everyone. I also applied to Rutgers NB for fall 2010 as a transfer student. Currently I am attending a CC and have a GPA of 3.42 with only 12 credits. My reason for going to a CC was that my SAT scores were so incredibly low that I didn't even bother applying anywhere. I have a learning disability and often struggle with test taking which is always a disadvantage for me. I wanted to prove myself as a student that I am capable of college level work. My SAT scores will not be shown in the application. With that being said, the only material that will be shown is my current GPA: 3.42, high school transcript 2.95, and the essay. All of my required credentials were received 2/8/10. I have been patiently wanting for a reply for about a month so hopefully it won't be too much longer. I appreciate any feedback good or bad. Thankyou and good luck to everyone else! Also how long has everyone been waiting?

    Are you sure Rutgers doesn't have your SATs? To my dismay, I realized they did since I had sent them to rutgers back when I took the SATs. I did well on them, but not good enough for engineering. But I was accepted into engineering, so I don't think they look at your sats or highschool transcript much anyways.
