TTT full ride plus book stipend or Hofstra with 30k per year

Postby Phatslice » Thu Mar 17, 2011 12:07 pm

Which would you choose? The Ttt has a stipulation that is basically good standing (very very easy to maintain) while Hofstra requires top 40 percent. The TTt also has a lower cost of living and they cover my books. I know many people will say retake, but please try not to waste your time. Yes I know job prospects at both schools probably not so great, that is why I am only presenting these two schools as options ( one is cheap, other is free) By the way at the TTt I will only owe about 40k after 3 years ( cost of living expenses). Basically I know Hofstra is kinda a crappy school, just wondering if it is worth considering if I have to only pay 13k per year. Thanks for the input.

Since retaking is not an option you should go to the TTT assuming its in the region you would like to practice in.

Thank you and Hank chill for actually responding and not just saying retake. So you basically think Hofstra is like a Ttt then ( same question for you Hank). Thanks

it depends on where you want to work and where the TTT is. and what the TTT is.

Take the full ride. Hofstra is competing with so many schools in the region and from other areas that it's not really worth it. Plus, living on LI is expensive, especially if you want to live in a safe area. With that said, assuming that the TTT is not in NY and you want to work in NY, there are a lot of Hofstra alum who are loyal in the area.

I am visiting both schools this week and from what i have seen so far, I wouldn't mind practicing in either area.

Is the TTT in a highly saturated market?

Yup, going to take the full ride. I just visited both schools and liked the TTT much better. Thanks for the input. And no the TTt is not in new York..... After visiting new York, I just don't think I am a new York kind of guy :)

Pleased to hear this, considering you seem hell-bent on mis-capitalizing New York. That would probably eventually become a problem for you if you practiced there.

"TTT or Hofstra" is more or less a false dichotomy. Take the full ride unless you have a good reason (e.g. strong location preference/family concerns) not to.

In fact, they are both TTTs. Pick your poison.
