While I did attend a state college in my senior year of high school, I am at a private institute now called St. Bonaventure.
I like Rutgers just fine, and I've got friends at that school.
As per state schools in general? Lots of students, larger classes, less professional professors, far more 'diverse' professors. As in barely speaking English lol.
That was my take on them after a year at one and several visits when selecting a permanent school!
thanks... it's a hard choice free vs. 40K a year. Rowan is smaller then Rutgers but.. still... thanks for your honesty.
