Cardozo 18,000k/yr or Brooklyn 20,000/yr

Postby mmhmmjc » Thu Mar 29, 2012 3:50 am

I am leaning towards Cardozo due to its better ranking. Is there anything that should keep me from choosing Cardozo over Brooklyn?

They're functionally equivalent with a slight edge to Dozo
Have fun

Those schools are so overpriced that merely getting a $18,000/yr scholarship is functionally paying sticker.

$48,000+ per year? For tuition alone?

Did you apply to Rutgers? Sign a NJ lease (which will be cheaper than living anywhere within a 45 minute commute of Cardozo, to boot), and it's $25K per year. Assuming you could squeeze even $8K a year out of them, that's a savings of at least $40K for job prospects that are basically the same.

Graduating with $60-$80K debt sucks, but is livable on a $50K/yr salary (especially in NJ). Graduating with $100-$120K debt is a ball-breaker, amplified by the fact that you will be more tied to NYC living. That's a nightmare. As in, literally. I graduated last year with $58K in debt and I have nightmares of having $100K debt, as some of my friends do. They are fucked. I have cold sweats and get bad gas, the stress is so bad from those dreams.

Wait until next year, apply ED to Rutgers, if you don't want to retake.
