Hey guys! I’ve been accepted into both Oxy and LMU and want to do premed or psychology. I’ve been accepted into LMU and like how its not too big or a school but not to small. I also like the team spirit that comes with LMU and Marina del Rey is beautiful! OXY has a lot of plus also! Oxy has a beautiful campus and a small community which I love and thrive! They also have a combined major or psychobiology and a cognitive science major which I like. They are also a very prestigious school which I value. I love both and know I will be happy at either. I kinda of just need someone to help me make this decision!
Unless LMU is significantly cheaper than Occidental or if LMU gives you significant merit aid, then you should go to Occidental… small differences in ranking are insignificant… but I think Occidental is significantly better than LMU.
How much will Occidental and LMU cost (after merit aid/ scholarships… but before loans?, how much loans will you have to take out for each?)
You are right… Im gonna drop everything do a gap year and reapply all over!
Right they are pretty equal in cost. LMU didn’t give me that much and still waiting to hear from OXY.
