major: CS / could potentially go into neuroscience or biomedical eng.
- Got a guaranteed transfer to BU for my sophomore year of college. Obviously no merit for transfers
- Got presidential (20k/yr) scholarship for GW
Issue: I’d have to stay local and commute for option 1. Only reason I’m considering this is because I’m being told that a degree from BU holds much more than GW. I do like both cities. BU was my top choice (after UT Austin lol) but it’s throwing me off that they didn’t want me as a freshmen admit.
I get no need-based aid from either, so three years at BU = 4 years at GW. Putting cost aside, which one would be worth it.
Bottom line: which school is better? BU or GW. BU ranks higher so I was considering staying here for another year and then transferring.
Please let me know any opinions on the matter!!
