Need help with college decisions!
I've been accepted to four colleges and need help narrowing them down.
Bucknell University (NO FIN AID)
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (SIGNIFICANT AID)
Rutgers University - New Brunswick (SIGNIFICANT AID)
Stevens Institute of Technology (SIGNIFICANT AID)
NYU wait list
A little background:
I am not the most social person; in fact most of my friends are nerdy and quite the opposite of social. However, I find that I need a good mix of the two to feel comfortable. I was raised in the city, and I feel as though keeping this environment is in my best interest. I also need ethnic/gender-based diversity; otherwise, I find it hard to talk to people.
I'd like to have a decent campus life (as well as outside of it), but nothing too controlling or party-centric.
I'd like to go somewhere far (minimum of one hour away, I currently live in North NJ) and somewhere that fits most of these requirements. Which college is the best option? I know there isn't one that has everything I'm looking for. Any advice would help!
(Aspiring female computer engineer, a minor most likely in finance)
Fin aid is not too big of a concern!
Thank you (:
