Temple or Drexel for a real estate major ?

Drew6411Drew6411 Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
I've been admitted to both to both temple and drexel for real estate and i was wondering witch I should go to.
They each have a lot of advantages Temple has a better campus life , an arguably better business school , great sports team and even after a lot of aid from drexel is it is slightly cheaper.
Drexel is an arguably better school as a whole, have a great internship program, a smaller class size and a higher salary after graduation

    Well I don't really know yet. But i leaning towards property management for both residential and commercial properties. Each school only has 1 major so you can't really get that specific I don't think.

    I think reported salaries include all majors, so if one college offers more STEM degrees they may report higher average earnings than a college that has fewer STEM majors. The salary you earn after college will depend on what your major is. I don't know how much property managers can expect to earn, but I think it must depend heavily on their location and how good the market is.

    What's the net cost of each college? Can your family afford them without having to take parent loans?

    I don't know the exact numbers but I could pay for either out of pocket although temple would be overall about 20k a year cheaper even after financial aid.But Drexel has a great co-op program that would do a lot to make up the difference being that you have 3 co-ops experiences that pay around 15 thousand each.

    Also to your other point about property management salaries do vary quite widely by location and what type of management your doing if you do strictly residential according to salary.com in Philadelphia a property manager who does both commercial and residential property management can make 86-114 thousand
