Syracuse V. Villanova

Postby aruzia2 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 2:37 pm

I am deciding between Syracuse (30K/yr) versus Villanova at sticker. I have help meaning I will get about 26,000 in outside scholarship. Is it worth taking on 100K in debt over 3 years plus interest to go to Villanova, especially in today's economy? I could use some serious help and thoughts on this!

I would go with Villanova, atleast you have the possibility of paying your loans back and making a decent salary. There is no market that Syracuse does really well in whereas Villanova's got Philly.

Syracuse probably does well in upstate NY. I really don't think Villanova is worth more than twice the debt; it's not as if 'Nova dominates Philly. You still have to compete with Temple, Penn State, some Pitt grads, and a few Penn grads that decide to forgo NYC and stay in Philly.
