I'm really torn between these two schools. I could really use some help. Any advice?

Also, im going solely for business.

    My S looked at same schools and ultimately chose Fordham. First, there was something about Fordham he always loved so gut feeling was a part of his decision. Bentley and CBA are excellent business schools and you should have internship opportunities at both places. Campuses are both beautiful (but different) its easy to get to midtown Boston/NY from each school. Bentley is strictly business and I think my S didn't want such a narrow focus of the whole student body. He likes having friends who are theology majors, pre-med, music majors etc. If only care about business, you should know that at Fordham you will have to take a large core (philosophy, theology) much of which isn't required at Bentley. You will be well rounded, but it eats up a lot of classes. Both schools are well known in the East but I would guess Fordham has a bigger alumni base in NYC and Bentley has a bigger base in Boston so that may impact where you ultimately get more job opportunities. Congratulations, you are lucky to have two such great choices so you can't go wrong.

    I agree with the person above me; I believe Fordham is the better choice and who doesn't want to go to school in NYC?!
