Buffalo or Stony Brook?

<p>Is there any real discrepancy between the two?</p>

<p>Only thing I can think of is Stony would provide me with more research opportunities while Buffalo would provide a greater "college experience" that Stony lacks.</p>

<p>CpE major btw.</p>

<p>There's no such thing as "college experience." its just your experience that you get while you got to college.</p>

<p>but nevertheless, go where your heart is.</p>

<p>If you want to discuss about a particular department, then some departments at Stony are stronger than Buffalo for sure, and some are stronger at Buffalo.</p>

<p>I have to agree with what Magneto said. Both are suburban areas, and I don't see why Buffalo offer a greater college experience. Unless you think smelling buffalo mean better experiences LMAO.</p>

<p>No. It's how you like it. Both give you the dorm feeling, and they are large university. I know people party like mobs at Stony too (and they get good grades!!).</p>

<p>CpE I think both are good. Buffalo's EE is probably better than Stony, while Stony's computer science is a lot better than Buffalo's (graduate rank of course). However, I feel that both departments are about the same. If you feel that research opportunities at Stony is slightly more than Buffalo, by all means go with it. I personally think Stony is more "internationally acknowledge" than Buffalo. I would go to Stony because their physics and CS are very good. It's closer to NYC too. CpE is CS and EE at the level of computer. I would go to Stony.</p>
