I got into Stony Brooo University for Electrial engineering and City College For electrical engineering. I’m reluctant to go to Stony because I would have to form. I want to ask if City college and Stony Brook have similar ranking, prestige, and curriculum. Basically I want to know if Stony Brook is that much better than City college that I would Dorm.

    Don't worry about this. If you want or need to keep your costs down and not have to pay for the residence hall at Stony Brook, City College is perfectly fine.

    If you can afford Stony Brook , then go there. Its engineering program is better known to employers in the area and has better academic recognition.
