Stevens vs NYU-Poly

<p>I've got a $20,000 guaranteed scholarship renewable each year (upwards to $80,000 over 4 years) for NYU-Poly, and a $5,000 guaranteed scholarship renewable each year (upwards to $20,000 over 4 years) for Stevens Institute of Technology.</p>

<p>Where should I go? I was considering Stevens since it is of a better school between the two, but that scholarship offer is nice, and NYU-Poly could be better in the coming years as its affiliated with NYU now. Also, I'm into music, and Stevens doesn't have an Orchestra, where as NYU has a community orchestra which I can be part of (note NYU Community Orchestra is open to everyone, but it would be easier to go there during rehearsal from NYC then from NJ).</p>

<p>I plan to get Mechanical Engineering and a Physics degree.</p>

<p>Additionally, if you do attend Stevens or NYU-Poly, can you describe how the school is from a student perspective?</p>

<p>P.S. I posted this in the Engineering Majors section, but seems like this is more of a College Selection topic. My apologies in creating 2 threads regarding the same matter.</p>

<p>Bump Up My Post</p>

<p>Please... anyone?</p>

<p>I think that NYU-poly is better now.</p>

<p>NYU-poly just got mergered with NYU.</p>

<p>After 2 years, it will be a true part of NYU.</p>

<p>I heard that poly students can take any classes @ NYU for now.</p>

<p>I think that is a priviledge.</p>

<p>Just my thought. :)</p>

<p>cmonyo81: Thanks for your input.</p>

<p>Anybody else? =P</p>

<p>I read several student reviews on Polytechnic Institute, but they were all dated circa 2004, while the student reviews on Stevens were all dated circa 2008.</p>
