    Rutgers gave me the academic rigor and variety of majors I was looking for at a fairly reasonable price. It is definitely a great option for in-state students and while it will be more expensive for those that are from outside New Jersey, it is still a good pick and worth attending.

    For the $ you spend you would think that the administration would give you a little more time of day when you need something.

    In-state tuition is beautiful! Then there is Federal Pell Grant and HESAA which decrease tuition even more (for me at least since I don't dorm). I'm glad to attend a great university that allows me to not worry too much about student debt after I graduate. If you dorm and got no money, I recommend looking into the living options after freshman year, or applying to scholarships! Out-of-State students, I feel for you.

    Dining and dorming isn't worth the money, but it's essential to your freshman year for the most part. The education you get is amazing considering the price. However the facilities aren't what you would expect, they could use an update and repair.
