Kluge Scholars @ Columbia vs. Fordham Honors programs and dean's scholarship?
I love both programs but don't know if Columbia is worth the money. I have all the expenses covered at Fordham and no aid at Columbia. I've heard the honors program is super intense/prestigious but I don't know if I should pass up Columbia. I applied to Fordham last minute as a backup and didn't expect such a good offer. Now I don't know what to do. Any information on either program would be super helpful.14 replies
