Not hard to get in as a transfer student but incoming freshman require somewhat high SAT and/ or ACT scores to get in.

I think as long as you have at leastMay 08 2014Computer Engineering
I think as long as you have at least a B+ average and decent SAT if coming from high school, you should be okay. I think the admissions have gotten tighter because of more people going to college in this economy to try and get ahead. A friend of mine got rejected last year whose grades weren't that bad.

As long as your GPA is over a 3May 08 2014Business - Management and Administration
As long as your GPA is over a 3.0, you shouldn't have trouble getting in to SAS, perhaps higher for business school (3.2+). I've read that as of May 1 2014 there are over 200 students currently waitlisted for the Fall of 2014, so don't assume you will be able to just walk in.

To get into Rutgers I simply filled out anJan 29 2013Business - Management and Administration
To get into Rutgers I simply filled out an application. Anyone that didn't fail out of high school will be able to gain acceptance. I would highly urge anyone looking at this school to explore other options. Also, do not be tempted by the allure of going to "Business School". Many good friends of mine attended small liberal arts colleges in the surrounding PA, NY, and MA and were able to secure far more prestigious and challenging jobs post-graduation. Their universities equipped them with invaluable critical thinking skills and experiences they will carry through life. When I graduate Rutgers University I will have a piece of paper and $60,000 in student loan debt.

Apply? lolNov 03 2010Biology
Apply? lol. Its not THAT difficult to get into this school.

As long as you have a 3.0 or higher, you should be good to go. Anything below that however, and they might just reject you.
