My son has applied to and been accepted to many SUNY schools (Cortland, Fredonia, Oneonta, Oswego, Albany, New Paltz) and I am very confused.
I realize that I am from a different generation but when I went to college Albany was always a flagship SUNY school. Now I do not know. I read mixed reviews and I see that the ratings have fallen a lot! US news rates it as a tier 3 school (whatever that means) and on all ratings I have seen, Albany is at the bottom of the list.
Has Albany gone down?? My son has also been accepted to UCONN, Penn State and UMass just in case but I would rather pay in state tuition if possible.
My feeling is that those who will be making hiring decisions are of my generation and may not know that the other SUNY schools have dramatically improved.
What is going on with SUNY Albany?? Your thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
