<p>I love NJIT as an academic institution but I'm a little worried about social life. I live only 20 minutes away and I don't want my fun to be at home. So what's the deal here?</p>

<p>Not sure myself as i don't go there. In fact any info from students on NJIT seems hard to come by. Out of the public University's in New Jersey only Rutgers usually gets any mention. I have seen opinions ranging from "NJIT is amazing" to "NJIT is the worst school, area, education"... then again doesn't every school have people on both sides?</p>

<p>Sidenote : What's wrong with having fun at home :)</p>

<p>are you going to school at NJIT next year??
i am! :)</p>

<p>yeah socially i'm a little worried. hope there will be things to do</p>

<p>i'm going to njit this fall also. i got really sad when i heard that njit kids don't have social lives and they just sit around and play video games.. i do NOT want to spend my college years that way! i wonder if they have any parties at njit</p>

<p>not much of a social life at NJIT. go to rutgers instead</p>

<p>whats the average gpa and sats score they accept?</p>


<p>like 1600 (out of 2400) and maybe a 3.2 gpa or something...or less. it's not that competitive, although they accept 69% of applicants.</p>

<p>I'm doing engineering at Rutgers New Brunswick and have a very low gpa of 2.0 and I'm very depressed. Note that half the class gets D's and F's. Rutgers NB has an acceptance rate of 30% and so it is quite selective and half are being failed.I'm thinking of transferring to NJIT to increase the gpa. Does anyone know the difficulty of the engineering at NJIT and also does anyone have an idea of what the average gpa at NJIT is? Any info would be of great help.</p>
