I had a similar experience at UMass - I was on a first name basis with all the professors in my department (geosciences).

I almost went to UMass until I got into BU early decision. A lot of Philly people at UMass. I think there were 5-7 from my graduating class there.

I noticed that as well. There are also a lot of people from NJ at UMass for some reason too.


Really, as stated earlier...your education is what you make of it. At almost any school you'll be able to coast by without getting to know your professors or you'll be able to take a bunch of extra time and get to know them if you want. It's all up to you.

Unless you're going to Princeton, there's a shortage of good colleges in Jersey. They've got the money to pay out of state tuition or transportation, the population to spread all over the eastern seaboard, the inflated SAT scores to gain entry and they're coming to a campus near you.

I figured it had something to do with the "didn't get into princeton/don't want to go to rutgers" crowd. Probably also a pretty ideal distance where it's close enough to visit if you really want to, but not so close that you're either visiting home or getting parents every weekend.

There are more than you think. Rutgers is a fine school, as much as I despise them. Drew, NJIT, TCNJ, Stevens. Monmouth, Saint Peter's, Seton Hall are all okay. Ramapo is actually becoming a pretty solid school. I personally wouldn't go anywhere in NJ besides Princeton. It's really no surprise that so many NJ residents who dont want to go to Rutgers go to Temple.

By the way, I'm still waiting on Bill Russell to respond to this, because this post was patently strange.

I'm sure Rutgers is ok but driving anywhere near it is a nightmare, and I can't imagine the experience is any better for those that live there. Drew and TCNJ both strike me as thinking they're better than they actually are. Seton Hall is fine as long as you don't step off their campus, and Monmouth is a ghost town. As you can tell, I've got my personal biases. They're probably all good fits for some people out there.

Re: Ranking A10 Schools Academically

URI's total Fall 2011 undergraduate/graduate enrollment (16,317) had over 1,000 students (1,032 for 6% of total) from the state of NJ. It was the 4th most repesented state at URI (RI, MA, CT, NJ, NY) this past year and has often been 3rd over the last few years. Surprisingly, NJ with half the population of the state of NY, had more enrolled at URI than neighboring NY.

Like I said, there are plenty of schools that are decent, but none of them do anything for me. NJ should definitely have better schools considering it's an economic and population leader.

Nothing outrageous that I can see I would probably but Butler in fifth or sixth other than that no real argument from me

If acceptance rate was the best way of determining a school's academic value, this thread wouldn't have been 5 pages long (and, acceptance rate tells you almost nothing about the quality of the classes/education at all...you'll note that it refers to incoming students).

I haven't met anyone who considers St. Joe's better academically than Fordham. Both nice schools, but Fordham is rightly at the top of the conference in this discussion (without the 80 pages worth of facts and narrative that would be required to compare to schools accurately, let alone 16).

Sorry BWFP, but I believe by almost any measure Richmond is tops.

I didn't mean to imply that Fordham was the top, just at the top. Richmond is definitely up there with GW nearby.
