You need to have close to a 3.0 to get in for transfers. Now that they are combing the schools into the School of Arts and Science the req. will change somewhat not totally. For freshman admission SAT scores and HS GPA play a big role
It's not that hard getting in if you're aJan 14 2006Business - Management and Administration
It's not that hard getting in if you're a Jersey resident! I had 1320 on my SATS and I took SAT IIs but the truth is, a 1200 would be good enough to get in .. I have a 3.8 GPA but a 3.4 would probably be good enough. Send your application EARLY then you get in EARLY because I sent in my application mid-October and I got my acceptance on November 1st
SAT: 1320 Female
Apply early, and write the 'optional' essayDec 19 2005Computer Science
Apply early, and write the 'optional' essay. The admission standards on most programs are pretty high, so if you are boarderline, you have a better chance of getting in if you apply early. Also, many programs have special admissions requirements beyond what the university requires, for example the Mason Gross School of the Arts, so pay attention to what you are submitting and make sure that you get everything in on time. Hard to get into: Rutgers College, School of Engineering, Mason Gross, School of Pharmacy. So So: Livingston College. Not so Difficult to get Accepted: Cook College(Agricultural College), Douglas College(all girls). Obviously, the tougher the college is to get into, the more desireable it is to go into that college once you are accepted. I highly recomend taking an official visit if you aren't sure which program you want to go into, to tour the campuses. Each college has its own feel and personality, so talk to some of the students while there to get an idea.
