Hi guys, I’ve been accepted to a variety of schools but have narrowed it down to Northeastern, the University of Richmond, and Fordham. I also have my state school (Rutgers) but I’m not considering it too much at the moment.
My intended major at most of these schools is finance, but the specific major varies. At Northeastern, I plan on majoring in International Business and Finance. At Richmond, I plan on majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Analytics. And at Fordham, I’ll be majoring in Applied Accounting and Finance.
Cost is where I’m a bit confused as to what to do. Northeastern will cost me 59k/year without the National Merit Award (which I may have to appeal soon, once NMF decisions are out). Richmond will cost me 48k/year. Fordham is my least expensive option, at 20k/year, and it is also cheaper than Rutgers.
At Fordham, I’ll be in the Global Business Honors Program, a selective group of 20 business students who travel to various parts of the world. I’m not in the Northeastern honors program and Richmond doesn’t have one. I’m not sure about Rutgers Honors since those decisions aren’t out yet.
I like Northeastern’s co-op program but I’m not sure if it’s worth the steep cost. I love Richmond’s size and reputation but it’s also quite expensive. Fordham seems great with its location but I don’t know if Gabelli is on the same level as my other options and if it would be a good investment. I’m also not sure about its safety.
Does anyone have experiences with any of these schools? It would be so helpful. Thanks again.
