Or maybe its all this ridiculous talk on SDN about how awful NYU is lol

But really, moving/going to dschool are huge decisions and huge life changes that would make anyone have doubts. Especially moving to one the biggest cities in the world like NYC, it can be overwhelming I'm sure. You worked hard and made it this far, it is only natural to have doubts about taking on 4 more years of school/stress + a huge amount of loans + new friends + a big, unfamiliar new home. Just make sure you get an apartment and get all moved in with plenty of time to explore and get used to the area, and maybe even get to know some of your classmates early. The more comfortable you feel before you start, the more comfortable you'll probably feel when the first day of classes arrives. :)

Other than the area where it's is located (it is Newark), I've heard nothing but really good things about UMDNJ and the quality of education that it has. And at a fraction of the cost of NYU, I think you've made a great choice. Good luck!
