Major: Computer Science (This Major's Salary over time)
If you are absolutely sure you like engineering or technology majors, and that pure academics is all that matters, then this school is an affordable choice. It is a predominately commuter school with 70% of the students leaving for home around 5-6pm everyday. It's still possible to make and keep friends if you dorm.

Academics: it depends on your department, most professors know what they are teaching, just can't teach it well. There are some superb professors, go for them. If you get stuck with a bad prof. your forced to teach the lesson to yourself, even if the prof. gives A's freely, YOU MUST LEARN IT TO UNDERSTAND NEXT SEMSTER'S WORK. A very heavy courseload.

College Spirit: It's a tech school, so granted, this will be weak, but at NJIT, it is nonexistent. School spirit consists of nervousness, underlining anxiety about grades, and if a student is really going for the best grades, complete exhaustion. Very little clubs, with around 8-14 memebers each in a school of 9,000. It's a ghost town on campus after 6pm and weekends. Cell phone neccessary tool to be able to have most social contacts since everyone is moving here and there since they have to get this done and that done quick. The students are very friendly, and very diverse, which is nice, but very stressed out and constantly working.

Again, if you truly want to major in engineering or tech, with no doubts and if the highest grades and only the highest grades are what you are after, choose this school. But if you see college as a place to develop people skills, find your own identity, be responsible and get the grades, choose another school. Once here, if you want to change majors, your stuck with tech or engineering. There are 'liberal art majors' here, but that's a joke. Make sure you dorm to make friends, or have friends back at home before you decide to come here.

I'm a computer science major, with a 3.0+ gpa. I have decided to transfer out. I am no long happy with a tech major, which is why I must transfer out, as well as the fact that I believe college should be a place to develop not only academically, but socially. All I remeber from NJIT is the constant stress, studying from the time I wake to the time I'd sleep, just to keep a good gpa, teach myself the class, and actually be ready for a tech career.

If you are going to be a Computer Science major, and have very little computer programming experience, don't believe it when they say that's okay, they'll teach it to you. They teach you basics of C++, for 4 months, then you are on your own. The rest is theory with no code.
