I'm trying to make a list of the colleges I would like to apply to. But I'm still looking for more choices and for what to eliminate off my list. I'm hoping to go to a college in or around New Jersey. I would like to major in psychology.

i went to rutgers for psych. the program was great. plenty of research opportunities because its such a large school. now im in med school aiming ot be a psychiatrist. as for tcnj vs rutgers... tcnj is smaller and quiet if that's what you're looking for. for me that seemed a little dull and i opted for the bigger bustling school. there was so much to do there it was great.

Rutgers is like my number once choice so far and my parents hope for me to go there. I go to Mcnair high school where many of the students there get accepted to rutgers. They call Rutgers Mcnair part 2. Right now Rutgers is my number one aim.

I actually went to The College of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ for Psychology. I was happy with the program and felt I got a really good liberal arts education as well as a strong background in psychology. The professors there are really accessible and you are able to do internships, independent studies, and work with professors on their research and projects. During my time in the program I presented research at the Eastern Psychological Association conference, was the teaching assistant for 2 of my favorite professor's classes, and conducted my own reasearch for my senior project. I'd definitely recommend the program. I also have a friend who went to Montclair University and double majored in communication and psychology. She really liked it there too.

Thank you very much for sharing that information and your experience. I think I have gained an interest into that college especially since I would like to major in psychology as well.
