Decisions, decisions..

Postby TracyLynn » Fri Mar 19, 2010 11:57 am

So far I've been accepted to:

Pitt (sticker..unless I get something in the next couple weeks)
Penn State (sticker..same as Pitt)
U Buffalo (in state tuition, plus 5000/year with no gpa requirement)
Hofstra (25,000 scholarship/year if top 40%)

I'm basically inbetween UB and Hofstra. UB's tuition would be around $12000/year and Hofstra would be around $15,000/year.

I know that UB is an amazing in state deal, but I'm not crazy about the Buffalo area and don't want to be stuck in upstate NY forever. Plus, I love NYC.

Where will I have better job prospects? Is the potential opportunities in NYC worth the extra cost of Hofstra?

Thanks for your help!

i'd go with pitt. PSU is probably not worth sticker, hofstra has too much competition from much better schools plus ridiculous COL, and buffalo won't travel outside buffalo so if you don't like the area, you'd be SOL.

pitt is the best school in its market and has little competition, plus with in state tuition, it's not a bad deal.

How easy is it to get instate at Pitt for years 2 and 3? I'm currently in New York so assuming I won't get it for the first year. I like Pitt but I'm don't know if I'm willing to pay sticker
