I have a friend of a friend whose son is a junior business major. She says he likes the small class size and that the professors are very accessible. She feels the business school has national name recognition. Sorry that's not much to go on - but she seems very pleased overall.
Would you mind posting the amount of the merit award? Sometimes people will say things like "good merit aid" - but never mention an amount and since SU is $42,000/year - I am wondering if you mean $5000 or $10,000, etc.
We visited SU last fall with junior son and were very impressed.
