Dartmouth v. NYU v. State U
Deciding between 3 schools
PROS-Lovely nature and outdoor stuff, Really well known, great professors, great education, impressive on a resume...
CONS- Smallish, no internships nearby. Competitive studentsówhich I donít mind, but itís something to consider if jobs look at my class rank.
MONEY-50 grand a year. = debt after college.
PROS: Internships, accepted into honors program, lots to do in the city, good campus culture.
CONS: I'll miss trees and flowers and grass! A lot. I like nature. Also, doesnít have quite the name recognition of Dartmouth.
MONEY: 25 grand a year (merit scholarship). I'll probably still be in debt afterwards, but not insanely so.
PROS: Itís a really good school, as far as state schools go. Not a UC/Virginia/Michigan, but not far under. Large, so good class selection and stuff going on at the campus. Also, wouldn't be hard to get good grades/ high class rank for jobs. Plus, I got into the honors program.
CONS: Not all that well-known outside of the state. Which could hurt job prospects.
MONEY: 17 grand per year, meaning I wonít be in debt after.
