    Get involved in anything and everything that interests you, you won't regret it. Use ratemyprofessor for every class. Get the smallest dining plan and don't be stingy you can always add more, but you can't get your money back!

    If you're considering any other colleges, don't look any further. Rutgers has all you need and then some by tenfold, for a reasonable pricetag. While the sheer size of Rutgers is often the deciding factor in why students say no to Rutgers, do not be intimidated. As you get familiarized with the bus system and different campuses, join clubs and make friends, you'll notice you will find familiar faces nearly everywhere you go. Many of my friends regret going to small colleges because the clique aspect is still alive and well in many smaller schools. Well, not here. Everyone is so friendly and willing to adopt you into their friend group. Striking up a conversation with nearly anyone is bound to have favorable results, and with all the clubs and organizations you can join, NOT making friends is virtually impossible. Shy people rejoice! Tips? Challenge yourself academically, be open minded when meeting new people, be kind, and balance work and play in a healthy manner!

    Getting in contact with admissions, financial aid office, etc., is difficult so keep harassing them and calling till they have helped you. If you can commute, do it (unless you can afford dorming) because there is so many things to do and events to go to that you will still make friends and meet people with having a huge debt. Although it is sometimes describes as a safety school, the rigor of the classes might surprise you so don't underestimate the difficulty level.

    As prospective student, I would definitely recommend taking AP classes or some form of college level classes. Rutgers is a challenging academic atmosphere in a good way but you should be prepared for the work load. Time management is everything!!! In addition begin financing tuition chargers way ahead of time.I waited to the last minute because I was not educated on taking loans out and it didn't do me well. Also I would suggest to begin a little more independent from parents which is a number one rule for all college students. College is a place where students are extremely independent and must act on their own rational decisions. My last piece of advice is to find an activity during the semester where you can escape from academics and other things that will stress you out. I had a lot of trouble adjusting with being away from home and instead of me joining clubs, I stayed in my dorm. The moment I got involved, I fell in love with my college experience.

    Know that you want a big school. RU has really big lecture halls especially for the general science classes. My biggest class so far was 442 students. However, if you're a student who will proactively seek help from your professor or are good at establishing a personal connection with your prof, he or she will really appreciate it and will definitely remember you. Also, due to the huge lecture halls, don't be tempted to skip class if you want to succeed; but skipping class is possible.
