Villanova or Wake Forest? No idea which is better

Postby SrLaw » Wed Mar 30, 2011 10:18 pm

Accepted to both these schools with the exact same scholarship for each. CoA looks a bit higher at Villanova compared to WF. I like the NE a lot but I am unsure as to which has the better prospects/is the better buy.

Which would be the way to go?

Wake 100%. Villanova limits you to Philly, while Wake gives you more mobility (Carolinas, Virginia, DC if you at the top).

It would probably be easier to be at the top of your class at Villanova (if that's important to you). Higher class ranking usually equals better job/transferability. However, Wake is much better ranked and a smaller, more personal atmosphere...

Definitely Wake if you have little opinion on where you work. Villanova if you know you wanna work in Philly.

this really isn't true.
Wake (especially with equal $?) is TCR

Unless you're set on Philly, Wake. I don't think it will get you back to the Northeast too easily, but it will give you a lot more opportunity in general.
