    I wanted to make a thread so that students who will be choosing to attend UMDNJ can get helpful information about financial aid, housing and all the other mounds of paper-work... :D

    hey guys, I will be attending to UMDNJ also next year..
    hope to see you all there..
    as you said, we should now really plan for our financial aid..
    I'm planning to buy a house and a car (at NJ of course) probably next year during spring..and that way, I will have no problem becoming a NJ resident.
    Well, have a great long~~ vacation, all of you.. :)

    Congrats to all of you going to UMDNJ, What a great school it is. Being from New Jersey I hope that I will get in this cycle. I applied really late and I was wondering if any of you guys who have been to the interviews whould have any idea if they are still interviewing or not and whether the class is full. Thank you.

    I remember from last cycle, that the last interviews were given sometime in early February if i remember correctly...this means that if you weren't invited by now, since they give a couple weeks before the actual interview date, you might want to start preparing for the next cycle...

    can't wait!!! :p
    I sent in my 1st deposit but haven't heard anything from them since. Will they be sending in the rest of the package after we submit the 2nd deposit or did you guys already get something in the mail?..

    Anyone received anything from UMDNJ after they sent in their first deposit? I received a letter telling me to apply for financial aid and nothing after that. I just want to know because I just moved and I want to know that I am not missing any mail from the office since I know they will be sending a second deposit letter sooner or later. Also, anyone know when this second deposit mail is going to be sent to us?

    I'm getting anxious to start school...

    depends, if your interviewing very soon...you might be interviewing for an alternate spot...but they do end up using the alternate list for sure, but to what extent is not predictable.

    good luck!

    I'll be there in the fall and I'm definitely interested if anyone wants to meet up before then. I really wish we could just start next week.

    Anyway, one of my big concerns is housing. They're building a huge apartment building on campus for students (the first student housing on the Newark campus), which was initially supposed to be ready by August 2006. I recently called the Office of Student Affairs to inquire about housing and they mentioned that there is no guarantee that the apartments will be ready in time. I think that living right there for the first year would make things a lot easier, although I was still going to consider other options.

    Apparently Student Affairs starts to handle student housing in April, so I guess we'll worry about it then...

    I've only gotten one piece of mail from UMDNJ since my acceptance letter on December 1st. A couple of weeks ago I got a letter about registering for financial aid on the website, which I did.

    I need to apply for financial aid as well but I have no idea how much I should borrow (last question of the application asks you to state how much aid you need). How do you even come up with a figure without knowing what tuition for next year is going to cost, etc. Am I missing information here?

    they said to ask for as much as possible and when they send you the award amount, you can ask them to decrease it if it's too much.

    Does anyone know when I should expect the second deposit form to be mailed to my house? I know it's due sometime in May, but when should I receive the letter telling me to send the deposit in?

    When did you hear that they would be ready in October? Did they abandon all hope of having it done in August?

    Anyway, I live in central Jersey and I'm still up for meeting everybody.

    Well, since the second deposit is due in May and in a few days it will be April. I was expecting that the office would at least give us a month or so notice before the second deposit deadline. Maybe I will give them a call sometime this week...

    So they don't send us a letter telling us to send the second deposit in? We have to just make out a check and state that this is the second deposit and send it into the office?

    Wow...

    OK, I called the office to double check and they will be sending us a mailing concerning the second deposit on April 1st. So expect something within the first week of April...

    hope that helped

    How many of you are going to rent/buy in Newark itself and how many are going to live in a surrounding suburb? I was thinking of the dorms, but was told they won't be done until the earliest August...and I have to establish residency before then because I live in NY... I kind of wanted to get an apartment right by the school for convenience, but is that what the students usually do??

    Just want to congratulate UMDNJ Class of 2010. I met many wonderful UMDNJ interviewees on my interview day. My faculty interviewer and the presenters were very friendly and approachable. Current UMDNJ students seemed very satisfied. I had a very positive experience there. Best wishes for UMDNJ CLASS OF 2010. :)
