edited April 2008 in Syracuse University

im a transfer student. i got accepted to AU as well as Syracuse University. I am in my 2nd semester rt now. In SU, 72 credits got transfered including from my high school, so if i go there, i'll graduate in 3 semesters. I'll have to pay around 60K for that.
I'll have to pay the same amount in AU but for 3 years.
I am plannin to major in Political Science/International Relations. I want to make the best out of the college life and earn experiences through internships and more.

I am having difficulty in choosing between the 2 colleges..in 1 i'll graduate in less time and hav more opportunities for internships. in another theres more to offer for the major.

i need ur help guys.

    If it were for any other major I'd say SU, but American University is a hot spot for politically minded students. Being in DC there are a lot of opportunites in the political arena.

    My daughter looked and and applied to both schools for graphic arts. She did not choose American due to the fact that everything seems to focus on debating and politics. She is not interested in that, and chose SU instead.

    I do not know about how the program is at Syracuse, so it will probably be a tough choice for you. Does the weather have any impact on your choice? The commute to either school? Other interests like sports or clubs in either school.

    I know it sounds corny, but my daughter did make a list of pros and cons for her favorite schools and it was clear as crystal once she made the list which was the best place for her! Good luck in your decision!

    i know its rlly tough for me to decide..
    on wat basis cud a degree in IR from Syracuse and American University differ??

    one thing abt syracuse is their maxwell school is rlly good. and if i graduate early as well, i'll have more time for internships and co-ops. plus in 3 semesters at syracuse, i might be able to do a few internships or study abroad.

    About AU, its in DC so its easy to make political connections so that after graduating it'll be easy to find job.

    I just dunno which to choose??
