Basically, I have come across two very different schools that I could potentially be interested in, I think they could both be academic matches for me. I just was wondering if anyone could help by sharing their opinions. By the way I am interested in Accounting or anything business related.
Disclaimer: I am sorry if anything is wrong, I’m just basing my pros/cons off of things I’ve heard. I also probably think about this stuff way too much, I just like to plan out my future.
School 1: University of Mary Washington (VA)
-Public, in state, very cheap
-Close to Washington DC and Richmond (and home)
-Liked the campus when I visited
-Like the area of Fredericksburg
-I’ve heard it’s kind of a commuter school
-Small business school
-Not a large internship presence (solely based off the b school website)
School 2: Ithaca College (NY)
-Good business school
-Good internship opportunities (opps in NYC)
-They have a lot of different things to pair with Accounting (Business analytics, info systems)
-I feel it would be a fun opportunity (something different than NoVa)
-Has a combined bachelors/masters program which would be really convenient
-It is private, which means it costs a lot more (Right now it’s in my family’s budget, it’s just a lot more expensive than UMW)
-I have never visited and I don’t know if/when I will be able to due to Covid
-I’ve heard it’s kinda in the middle of nowhere, far from NYC
Sorry if this was really long or formatted weirdly, I did it on my chromebook. At the end of the day, I realize the college I choose will be up to me, but I was hoping I could possibly get some insight.
