    i got accepted to both for music business
    i am having a really hard time deciding
    can anyone help?
  • PerfectedxchaosPerfectedxchaos Registered User Posts: 872 Member
    Cali - I think Fredonia, from what I've heard, has a stronger music program. Additionally, I think it has a better reputation. Oneonta seems to be more of a party school, from what I have heard.

    I posted these questions on the SUNY thread in the College Search board, with no success. Does anyone here know the answers?

    Is the SUNY system participating in the College Exchange program? I'd love to encourage my son at SUNY Buffalo to do a semester or even summer school at a college in Wyoming, California or Maine down the road, as a cheaper option to a semester abroad. The tuition deal through College Exchange is great. I saw that Buffalo College is listed on the College Exchange site, and don't know if that means it's a program that the entire state system can access. I emailed College Exchange, but haven't gotten a reply yet.

    Also -- does the fact that a student did his/her undergrad work within SUNY carry any weight when applying to SUNY grad schools?

    Neon - I think there is a "study abroad"-esque program within the states because at an orientation at a SUNY, I remember thinking I could go to Hawaii for a semester....

    And I would imagine that going to one SUNY undergrad could help for SUNY grad, but I am not sure. But I would imagine that going to say, UB and applying for grad. school at that one, would carry more weight...
  • sbuadmissionssbuadmissions College Rep Posts: 1,993 Senior Member
    Yes, we do participate in the College Exchange program. (At least, Stony Brook does.) Buffalo State College is not the same as UB, but I'd assume that UB would participate; have him contact the Academic Affairs office, and they'll help direct him where to go.

    To your other question, it probably doesn't hurt to come from a SUNY campus, but it really depends on the program and the campus, as grad programs really vary widely across the state.

    Did anyone hear from regular admissions from Oneonta?
  • PerfectedxchaosPerfectedxchaos Registered User Posts: 872 Member
    MaryAnn - I *think* they may be out by now, though don't quote me on that.

    i am still having a hard time choosing between fredonia and oneonta. I got into both already for music business and seriously have no idea where I want to go
  • PerfectedxchaosPerfectedxchaos Registered User Posts: 872 Member
    cali - I think Fredonia has a better reputation.
  • caligurl2569caligurl2569 Registered User Posts: 58 Junior Member
    Yeah I hear a lot of great things about fredonia music program, but not the music business

    and I have heard from many people a lot of great things about about oneonta music business program

    it's all so stressful
    usually I am good on deciding things
    but this is putting me in a pickle
