Quick question, so my brother in-law was a staff writer for the Denver Post and NY Times. He went to Columbia. His suggestion for my son is SBU, citing according to him more journalism awards for students and graduates in print and broadcast than any other school he can think of, in terms of size naturally. One issue it has a 400 hour internship requirement for graduation.
The location is bad but the projected merit is basically the whole nut and the school has very nice students and lots of spirit. I am familiar with its very good accounting program.
