Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the Rutgers-Newark program (funding, quality of teaching, etc).

I'm originally from NY, (got my AA from NYU too many years ago) but finished up my BA in Creative Writing in St. Pete, FL. The Rutgers program sounds very interesting--enough to make me consider relocating back up north.

Do you live in the area, or will you be commuting in from NY?

Hi Sonia -- I live in New Jersey, about 20 minutes from Newark (I used to live in Queens, but my husband and I moved out here ten years ago when we were starting our family). I am really looking forward to the program so feel free to ask me any questions! Only 26 more days till my first class!!! (Not like I'm counting or anything!!!)

Congratulations! I'm sure the days are both going too slow & too fast.

I'm excited for you and look forward to seeing what you think about Rutgers once you're there.

The first issuie that thomas sabo jewellery online consumers are facing thomas jewellery in India is the narorw range and limited choice of merchandize. Even pandora bracelets the leading sites like ebay.in, indiaplaza.in, indiatimes pandora jewellery or rediff have very liimited range of pandora australia iteems and therefore pandora bracelets are hardly attrractive. I personally searched pandora bracelet many a ties for books and music pandora charms titles amoong other things in the Inddian sites but seldom fouund any thomas sabo australia great product and never thomas sabo excciting prices. In spite of limited rnage still some conssumers want to buy online sabo jewellery just for the sake of convenience but then their expertience is also not good.
