Rutgers University - New Brunswick
Rutgers University - New Brunswick - Comments and Student Experiences|
Living expenses exceed tuition, costing over $10,000! It's freaking ridiculous! Clubs suck and you'll never have time to do anything because the coursework is unnecessarily excessive. Webassign homework suck, recitation is pointless, and the cut-throat competition is merciless.
Bus system is horrible and you're dependent on it because everything is so dame far. It's always jam packed and there will be many times where you'll have to wait for the next bus. Inside is dirty, water leaks, and bums sleep in the backseats. People ask you for money and bus drivers do nothing.
Thugs are everywhere in the city and it's dangerous at night yet police do nothing. Classes suck, everyone is goofing off since there's over a 150 people in a class and you get no 1 on 1 time with professors.
Many Black and other minorities are there not because of their brains, but because they can run around with a ball in their hand and they get special treatment. Minority and foreign students are treated like royalty and American citizens are given the finger.
You're just a number. Tutors suck, there's not enough available to help you and you have to teach yourself everything.
Students are snotty, arrogant, and unfriendly. Only the international ones are okay. A lot of Princeton and Private school/Ivy League rejects are there, and they think they're better than everyone.
It gets really lonely really fast, because you have no time to do socialize unless you're majoring in Gender Studies.
The RU Screw is very real folks. System glitches are common, you can be kicked out of your classes for no reason like I was and then you'll have to jump over fences to get someone from admin to fix it. That's the other thing about admin, they're slow, incompetent, and always tell you "that's not my department". Nobody knows what the hell they're doing.
Opportunities are not as elaborate as advertised. I know the ones who did well and it was do to their parents knowing someone beforehand who hooked them up with jobs.
Research is a joke, it's all about Big Pharma or the government and you'll just do whatever they tell you, it's not like they'll let you research cancer and actually attempt to cure it.
Students suffer, especially Americans, because they are forced to deal with the controlling communist academics, especially in the life sciences and math departments.
My advise - GET OUT, NOW! Transfer to Stockton, it is so much better. It's got a beautiful campus, greenery, and you can actually drive and park on campus, and walk to classes. Amazing right? And you don't have to pay a $300 parking permit like you do at Rutgers!
I would advise you to read the eBook, "The RU Screw" by G.S. Luthra, available on Amazon for free. That eBook really details what it's really like going there. I wish I knew the information before I would've never went to that s**t-hole school.
If you're in RU, all I can say is GOOD LUCK, if you can, GET OUT ASAP BEFORE THEY SUCK YOU DRY OF YOUR MONEY! They were caught hiding billions of dollars offshore and still refuse to accept it or lower costs for students. Again, this school is a RIP OFF! It is a s**t-hole school, DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT GO TO RUTGERS!
