Rutgers-Camden, here I come

Grad school begins in the fall. I've been out of college a year and procrastinating, but I just got the email saying that I've been offered a teaching assistantship with full tuition remission and an 18k+ stipend and full medical benefits at Rutgers University, Camden. I'll be teaching writing courses since I'm working towards my Master's degree in English. Wow. I can't believe someone's actually paying me to go to school. It's fantastic. Anybody around here from the Camden area?

Congrats. That's a really good stipend for an English program, and health care is pretty rare for TAs. I'm finishing up my PhD in English this semester. Feel free to PM me if you have questions about surviving grad school

Congrats on the job. But watch out for Camden.

Camden is supposed to be a complete dump. One of the highest murder rates in the US.

Congratulations!!!!!

I'm finishing up my Bachelors in English and then my teaching degree. I'm stopping with teaching Senior High creative writing, for now anyway.

Camden is the most dangerous city in the United States. Literally.

But on the bright side, it has an aquarium.

I've been doing research on the crime rate thing. Apparently, it was the most dangerous a few years ago, but has dropped down into the 300s or something with a 30+% cut in the crime rate.

Wow, that's unheard of to be paid to go to school. Good for you though, warmest congratulations!

As horrible as it sounds, I'm mostly excited by the thought of being 45 minutes of my fiancee in Delaware (she's a TA at U. Del.) and 1 hr. 40 minutes from NYC. I . But I don't know. I really wanted to go for my masters at NYU and I got over 1400 on the GRE, but I still haven't taken the subject test for English. We'll see. I love NYC, but Callie is more apprehensive about raising children in a metropolitan area.

The GRE English subject test is so hard! They expect you to have a really wide range of knowledge, and to be able to identify quotes from so many time periods. I never used Cliff's Notes in my life until I was studying for it, and then I did just so I could learn character names and major plot points in as many different works of literature as I could. I still didn't do that well
