Fordham v Bryn Mawr

I just got off of Bryn Mawr's waitlist, which I'm super stoked about. I am currently going to Fordham (Lincoln Center), but am considering losing the deposit and going to Bryn Mawr. Ever since I started the college process, I have really wanted to go to an all women's college. However, I've also really wanted to go to school in NYC, and I know Fordham has access to some great internships. For reference, I'm particularly interested in English, communications, journalism, film studies, etc. If I wasn't worried about finding a job after college, I would probably choose Bryn Mawr in a heart beat, but I'm not sure if that will get me where I want to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, Bryn Mawr will get you where you want to go. YOU will get you where you want to go. And it is in a great location. Go and don't look back. Congratulations!

    i am not sure but believe that Bryn Mawr (nor the other colleges in its consortium) have much strength or breadth to offer re: some of your stated interests, such as journalism. If each one of those course areas you have mentioned is important to you, you should quickly check into that issue (if Fordham is a stronger choice in that respect).

    It sounds like your heart is saying Bryn Mawr and it sounds like if you were accepted initially it probably would have been your choice -- so if affordable go there.
