    Rutgers is very expensive for what it's worth. The bus system, dining halls, and dorms need updating.

    I spent and am spending a lot of money on this school, but I don't think it's worth the price. It is a great school, but it's just so expensive and I have been hit with so many extra costs that I just can't take it anymore
