Hi Everyone, I am just wondering as to your thoughts between NJCU and UMDNJ? Rutgers is my first choice. Which of these schools has a better reputation in your opinion? I think I would go for NJCU because one would be done... Read More

    am sorry 2bEsqtoRN, you are wrong about this whole rutgers/umdnj thing. rutgers, umdnj, njit and essex county college are located at the same place and i guess just 2 minutes drive from each other. cars are even stolen around rutgers at gun point so i am kind of lost as to what you're talking about. there is no difference though... rutgers is more beautiful but not 100 percent safer.
    Key phrase in your statement: "I guess".

    Let's base it on the map, shall we:


    A - Rutgers
    B - Essex County College
    C - UMDNJ
    D - NJIT


    While UMDNJ may very well be in close proximity to the three other institutes of higher learning, it is certainly closer to the dumpier part of Newark, NJ.

    Well, I'm confused because when I was at Rutgers Newark I saw UMDNJ right down the road... Maybe they have buildings throughout Newark? I am actually looking at the crime report for UMDNJ it is pretty scary.

    University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ: Public Safety, Annual Security Report
    So I took a closer look at the 2010 crime report for UMDNJ and its noted that they have had 3 robberies, 5 aggravated assaults, 2 burglaries and 4 vehicular thefts ON CAMPUS. And that's just those that have been reported, not including crimes that occurred immediately outside campus grounds.

    TobEsqtoRN - I graduated from Rutgers Law School in Newark in 1987. The City was much more dangerous then than it is now. I think all of the schools and hospitals have great security. I would have no qualms about going to nursing school in Newark. I grew up in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Boston and only was the victim of one assault (in a nice NYC highrise). If you're so worried about safety, go to some suburban town (where you're chances of being creamed by an SUV are alot higher than your chance of being mugged in Newark). Sad to see that these misconceptions about Newark are still so prevalent.

    I'm not quite sure what the past has to the present. Just because Newark is now a safer city than it was back then does not mean its suddenly as safe as other cities in surrounding areas. It's not. And that's coming from someone who currently attends school in the heart of Newark. There are still robberies, cars remain stolen and the crack addicts still run rampant. It not a misconception, it is a reality and it is what it is.

    Doesn't matter if you go to Rutgers or UMDNJ any more they are as of July 2013 UMDNJ's Nursing program will be called the rutgers school of nursing because rutgers has taken over UMDNJ. Also they are around 7 blocks from each other so for someone who says they know the area is one thing I live in the area all those Universities and Colleges are a stones throw away from each other. There is Crime everywhere I was born and raised in Brooklyn and it's the same thing you have robberies around Certain college campuses to same in Baltimore in College Park over there. Crime is everywhere just always be alert wherever you go.
