Is Colgate worth it vs a top undergraduate business school?
Hey guys, I absolutely loved Colgate when I visited and I love the small town atmosphere, and honestly it is just where I want to be for the next four years of my life. The only issue is that I am 99.9% sure that I want to go into real estate, so it is hard to be considering Colgate with a liberal arts education when comparing it to a top undergraduate real estate program with extensive resources. I know Colgate has tons of alumni in real estate since they have a real estate professional council which is great, but I am just not sure if Colgate is worth attending if they really do not have any academic offerings or extracurricular activities for real estate. Also, my parents are very against me going to Colgate because of this and they say that they are not willing to pay 75k a year for me to not even get a strong business and real estate background, they are pushing me towards schools with great real estate programs like Villanova and Penn. WWYD? I am only an incoming senior but my parents don't even want me to apply to Colgate. Would Colgate be just as valuable as a top undergraduate business school for what I want to do? If so, how could I convince my parents that it is worth me attending? Thanks in advance! All insight is welcome8 replies
