Drexel vs. UPenn (Philadelphia, PA)

<p>Two colleges, both right next to another. I could most likely get into Penn right now with no money at all, or go to Drexel for practically nothing. I am commuting, because the train there basically takes me door to door in 30 minutes.</p>

<p>My question, Drexel has a great co-op program with good salaries many opportunities, and Penn is a better known business school, so in the long run (job opportunities after school with room for much advancement) would Penn really make that big of a difference?</p>

<p>You can get into UPenn with no money at all? The only reason to consider Drexel in this comparison would be if there was a big difference in price between the two in favor of them. Otherwise, no brainer, pick the Ivy.</p>

<p>No their tuitions are very similar, but I wouldn't get money from Penn like I would from Drexel. I would probably be paying $30,000+ for uPenn and maybe $500-$8000 for Drexel.</p>

<p>If you are full pay for Penn and would be taking out loans for all of it, don't do it. If you are going to commute, you might as well go to Drexel. If money was not a factor, there is really no comparison between the two schools. For engineering/co op, I would go with Drexel. In this economy, the Drexel grads are struggling to get non-engineering jobs.</p>

<p>Have you actually been accepted to either school yet?</p>

<p>UPenn no q's asked</p>

<p>Okay, that makes more sense. I agree with MomofWild Child, if you have to borrow the money, you need to consider the price difference since it is significant.</p>
