Hey guys, I am currently at a CUNY CC. I am looking at my transfer options and have narrowed it down to 2 schools. Baruch College vs NYU McGhee. I have a few questions I'd like answered if anyone has any information about the program. My major will be Computer Information Systems.

Is a degree from McGhee as prestigious (to employers) as a degree from any of the other schools at NYU? The difference in price is astronomical. Baruch would grant me a traditional BBA and McGhee a BS, However I am skeptical of how the McGhee degree will be seen (as inferior to say a degree from Baruch.) Is the SCPS degree as noteworthy as a degree from a traditional undergraduate program?

If there are any students in the program would you be so kind as to tell me what compromises the student body? I am looking for a competitive environment but with some personal attention if I am having difficulty with some of the curriculum.

Thanks for any help.
