Where to go?

Postby ligirl » Thu Mar 11, 2010 10:14 pm

Brooklyn/St. John's would be + the cost of living, Hofstra technically I could live home (although I don't want to). BU and Cardozo are also options assuming I get off the WL, but I doubt that would include any money.. so I don't think I'd consider that. I'm trying to negotiate with Brooklyn for more money because I really want to go there, but don't know if I can turn down a full ride.

Anyway, opinions .. ?

With these choices, I would focus on debt aversion since it will be largely up to you to find and create job opportunities. They'll be a lot less pressure on you to land some big paying job if you don't have major debt. Thus I picked St. Johns (full ride followed by highest ranked)

Well, if that's the case why not choose Hofstra? Her COL will be $0 because she would be living with her parents.

While if she chooses to go to St. Johns and doesn't live at home, she is still looking at something like 40-60k in COL debt.
