Cornell vs Boston College!

<p>I need help deciding, definitely more towards one than the other. Though, I feel that either way I go, I'll be turning down an amazing school. I'm going to both this weekend, but I'm very torn!</p>

<p>I don't think the two really compare in terms of academics.</p>

<p>I an understand your puzzlement. Both schools are great. My son is trying to decide between UVA School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Cornell Engineering. Each are tier 1 schools and have name recognition. We're from Virginia. Cornell is far and hard to get to. Should would use Cornell simply because its an IVY? Any suggestions would be helpful.</p>

<p>Cornell is sooooo much better than BC. Unless money is a factor, Cornell would be your best.</p>

<p>Cornell has a world-class and world-recognized engineering school--engineering school alumni are positioned throughout industry and throughout the world. So, unless you are planning to live in Boston for the rest of your life this is a huge plus for Cornell. Cornell also has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country.</p>

<p>But remember--if you choose Cornell--you will be living in an isolated community with a depressed economy--the isolation and the economy change how people interact with each other and not in a good way.</p>

<p>BC does not have an engineering program, so if you want engineering you should go to Cornell.</p>
