  • Jan-13-2016 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Had a 2.11 and got accepted into the business school. If you show up for their instant decision with the bare minimum needed to be accepted, you will be accepted. 2.0 is the minimum for most of their programs. I decided to go to another university. Not saying its a bad school, its just easier to get into than most other schools in NJ. Campus looks nice too.

    Campus Police ruined my friends and myself mentally. We have no peace of mind. I transferred out after my first year.

    It's the cheapest state school in Jersey. I'm not sure about how it would compare to other schools nearby like Montclair or FDU Teaneck (I've never taken classes in those schools) but if you work hard you'll find the opportunities you need.

    Not anything what I expected this school to be or what it was made out to be. I transferred here from another school and am so unimpressed with the music program. I'm finishing this semester, and never coming back.

    William Paterson is a great school. The teachers are very helpful and want to see you succeed if you are putting in the effort. Overall, the school offers a lot of opportunities being that it is only 10, 15 minutes from New York.

    The landscape and where the college is located is clean, safe, and non threating. There's buses that can bring you anywhere from new York to the mall. Great clubs and activities.
