I am a high school senior trying to decide whether I should attend Villanova or Penn State next year. This decision is especially difficult considering each school has a number of unique positives and negatives. For PSU, cost of attendance is about 26,000, but I did not get into the Honors program. PSU also boasts a superior social and sports scene. In addition, I have been a lifelong PSU fan. For Villanova, cost of attendance is roughly 50,000, as I received the $6000 Villanova scholarship. Villanova is ranked higher and is more prestigious, but it is also much more expensive. While I like Villanova athletics, I have heard that Villanova's social scene is nowhere near that of Penn State. This is an extremely difficult decision; any input is greatly appreciated!
