Hey guys. I've been really stressing out lately about what school I'll end up going to. I got into my top school, Fordham. I absolutely love it, and want to go there so badly. The problem is that they estimated that I will get only $10,800 from them, not enough for my dad to say yes for me to attend. The only way I could attend would be if I commute, but I really do not want to since I want a real college experience.
Fairfield, on the other hand, has given me $17,000 and my parents think I should go there. I'm not sure of my major, and (correct me if I'm wrong) they do not offer graduate programs in everything that I may pursue. Plus, Fordham offers way more in terms of connections and networking, from what I understand.
What do you guys think I should do? Ditch the dorming thing, and stick out commuting at Fordham? Or go to Fairfield.
Thanks in advance!
