  • Hi NYGiants- just saw your posting- not going to add much more than what I have said throughout this posting. SUNY Cortland has served my daughter quite well over the years. There was an extreme amount of flexibility in doing "for credit inter…
  • --my d is a happy Cortland alumni who had similar stats to your daughter. Only suggestion I can think of is for your d to remain in contact with the Cortland admission advisor. Inform the Adm. officer that she visited the campus and how much she l…
  • ---it was probably the Jets. Cortland is the summer training camp for the NY Jets. So many of the Cortland kids do an internship for the team. Hopefully the Jets will renew their contract with Cortland and will remain in Cortland for a few more y…
  • TyMac- you make a good point but u also need to be familiar with the surrounding area of the school too. My d was a sport management major at SUNY Cortland and was able to avail herself to internship opportunities in Syracuse NY which is about 30 m…
  • also to add- but info is old. When d graduated long island HS in 2006, she was admitted to cortland with around 87 average and 23 ACT. Her SAT's were terrible- so we went the ACT route and I believe 23ACT is equivalent to a 1050 SAT or thereabouts…
  • Oy- I have literally not been on this site for months- but old habits die hard so decided to see what was new. I guess my timing was good as I see pviewmom had some questions about Cortland. My d graduated in 2010 and was a sport management major.…
  • Hi Penguin- I don't come on these boards too much anymore, but I saw your posting. My d graduated from Cortland in 2010 and is now working for a sport/event marketing firm. I think cortland played a big role as it gave her the oppotunity to do a…
  • clarkney- i went to suny website and did program search for special ed.- so Buffalo state, geneseo, old westbury and plattsburg all came up. Then went to check on cortland as my d graduated from there (not education major). So they list a major …
  • ktatic- it's just my personal feeling, but I am not a real big fan of a masters in sport management. I think for an undergrad degree it's fine, but at the masters/graduate level you may be better with an MBA- in posting #91-niksmoth mentions a jo…
  • Hi Mj- this is an old thread that keeps popping up every so often. My d graduated SUNY Cortland in 2010 as a sport management major- I addressed alot of these issues in post # 5, 17and 40 from 2008- and alot of what I said then- stands firm now. …
  • am just aware of the program but don't know too much info- university of north carolina at Wilmington has a pretty decent film department. Apparently there is a major film production studio in the Wilmington area--. Sounds like there is alot of …
  • call me a cynic- but is it possible that because Princeton has no medical or law school and Princeton cannot reciprocate acceptances into these programs, it is wiser for law schools to take a higher % of students from schools that have a Law Schoo…
  • ivy- it's still about 15 %- not chopped liver. I noticed with Cornell over the years, the acceptance rate to Harvard was a fairly consistant 10 %. Ya think the law schools have some type of formula as to the % they accept from certain schools?? …
  • ok let's state the obvious- those that go to the more "elite" schools probably had higher SAT scores and of course that might be reflected in their LSAT scores. And of course the higher the LSAT/gpa score the better chance one has to get into Harv…
  • Neice (from Long Island) recently graduated U Conn. Took her a while to adjust (not a real happy freshman year)- but stuck it out and had a wonderful experience. She joined sorority- so that might have helped her form friendships. I believe she…
  • nyc- my d also had sub 1000 SAT's (she did much better on ACT ), so she applied to SUNY Delhi as an absolute safety. I am hearing that a good # of NYC/Long Island kids attend Delhi and Cobleskill, which isn't too far from Albany. In the past, th…
  • GNW- I think this issue has been visited many times before- that is why DOL and Fair labor standards are that specific. That is why my kids school and team had to have a sort of memo of understanding signed by both parties to ensure that the inte…
  • D was sport management major, and it was part of the curriculum to get an internship. Most sport organizations require confirmation that academic credit will be given. In fact there was alot of correspondence and agreement of terms between d's col…
  • requirements for Buffalo State are easier than UB. I believe that campus is in downtown area but not sure. fyi- Buffalo State and University of Buffalo are 2 different SUNY schools.
  • from a NY mom whose d swore she would never go to a SUNY- we looked at several OOS publics where the price was not totally outrageous. (d graduated college 2010 so the prices probably went up considerably since the time we looked). Temple U - outs…
