My daughter’s portal now says under review.


I applied mid October. Based on Rutgers doing rolling admissions, when should I expect to hear their decision?

Thanks a lot!

mid-December. It is not rolling notification like IU, Minn and others. I believe it is considered rolling merely because applications are accepted to certain programs, on a space-available basis, after traditional deadlines


Thank you so much!

For Rutgers NB - for a business/finance major is ACT =32 good ?

32 is exactly the midpoint for RBS


Submitted in early October and still not under review.

me either :frowning: and I submitted in sept

I called them and they said Early Action is not in the review phrase yet. So not sure how someone has the application in the Review phrase already. My child is attending the #11 ranked HS in the US and has an SAT of 1560, GPA of 100.3. So I would’ve assumed that if they are reviewing top students that she would be on the list.

My kids portal says: “Application Pending-check back soon for a decision.”

But the “Under Review” box is not checked.The portal just shows stuff checked off, but does not say if it’s complete. My kid has submitted SRAR and test scores along with the applixation.

Rutgers and UMD must be competing for the “worst admissions portal” title!

actually if you see Pitt then you would change your mind :slight_smile:

Yes - Pitt’s portal is in its own category of “admissions portal most closely resembling a scavenger hunt”

:joy: :joy:

I thought UMD won the prize….
Now that the application is marked completed… there is NOTHING on the portal. And it’s so hard to find the logon page of the portal! It’s not directly on the website and if you google it, the portal won’t show up either !

checked my portal this morning and it has a “View Status” button now and when click on it it takes me to another page where the status listed as “Submitted App”? lol


Anyone received acceptance for Rutgers Fall 2022 so far ?

Unless I’m mistaken - I don’t think the first wave comes out until at least December 10th (based on past years).
