How come no one talks about Wagner College?

Wagner College on Staten Island is ranked 26th in regional north and 5th as upcoming school, but I don't hear much about it. Even schools with lower rankings, like some of the CUNYs or C.W. Post or Pace got mentioned. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    I think it's because it's not that popular for instate students? Alot of people do come from other states.

    Because it's on Staten Island. And Staten Island is the abused stepchild of New York.

    I've heard of it, but it was never a consideration for me. I'm from Long Island and I considered SUNYs and CUNYs above Wagner (mostly because it's a small private that doesn't offer much more than high tuition). The SUNYs and CUNYs give (I think, anyway) better educations at a cheaper price.

    As for LIU (CW Post) or Pace, I'd consider it in the same range as Wagner. I know CW Post more since its closer to me.
