I attended this school because of my scholarship.Quite BrightBiology
I attended this school because of my scholarship. But what I did not know when I accepted my "full" scholarship was that ramapo is a money grubbing machine. They offer scholarships to get smarter people to attend the school than the party goers who attend classes drunk. But once they have you, they do not care about your well being at all. The classes are a joke, I skip most of them when I can and still get a gpa above 3.5.The people I have met are nice, but cliques form quick. I do not feel that I am getting my money's or even my time's worth of an education. The administration does not care about the students and tries to distract the students from relevant issues. They changed the schedules for the semester, but they neglected to think of their commuter students (which represent about 40% of the student population) when making these schedules. I have friends who had to drop to a part time student due to the schedule changes. This college is just awful.

Question
To be honest, I was originally unsure ifSuper BrilliantFinance
To be honest, I was originally unsure if I wanted to attend since I was considering other NJ state schools: Rutgers and TCNJ. However, after considering the fact that Ramapo's tuition is the cheapest, I decided that I would go here. After more than 2 and a half years here, I can truly say that I don't regret my choice at all!

Faculty are pretty nice and go out of their way to help students. Overall, I'd say that most of the students are nice here. Once in a while, you might come across someone who is arrogant but not often. The dorms here are really nice! The freshman dorms are pretty big compared to many of the schools I've visited. Also, I believe the housing for the juniors and seniors are even nicer.
