Just some further information - I don't know how they are going to run the accelerated program next year, but I can tell you that my classes are split between Newark and New Brunswick. I just started the accelerated program this May - for summer sessions I and II I am in Newark, for the fall semester I am in New Brunswick for my classes and clinical rotations, as far as I know now, in the spring I am in Newark for classes, but not sure about where my clinicals will be just yet - it could be anywhere in the state - then next summer I think may be back in Newark, but I have to double check about that again. Some of this is subject to change. I can also tell you that during this summer I was only in Newark for 3 days during the 1st summer session and 2 days for the second summer session. Again, I don't know if this is how the program will run for next year, but that's how things are working now.
I am really not familiar with the traditional program details, sorry I can't help you more with that.
Going back to the Newark factor - do you live anywhere near a train station? Some of the people in my program (including myself) take the train on the days we have class in Newark - it is definitely the way to go considering the price of gas and traffic in the area. I live in Monmouth county, so the train ride is like 45/50 minutes, and I can study or sleep while on the train - I really like it actually.
Anyway, if you have any other questions, send me an private e-mail through this forum - I think that may be easier. Hope that helps!
