SUNY Geneseo vs Hamilton

<p>My friend is stuck between these two schools. He wants to go to a LAC but Hamilton is $50,000 per year while Geneseo is SUNY price. Let me ask you a few things:</p>

<ol>
<li><p>Cost aside, is one of them much better than the other?</p></li>
<li><p>Considering cost, which would you choose?</p></li>
</ol>

<p>Also, consider that he wouldn't be in debt if he went to Hamilton but would have $50,000 towards grad school if he went to Geneseo.</p>

<p>Cost Aside? Hamilton, one of the best LAC's in the country</p>

<p>Considering Cost? SUNY Geneseo. It is a great college at SUNY price.</p>

<p>If price was not a consideration, I would choose Hamilton hands down. However, if cost is any kind of a factor, either now or potentially in the future, I would have no problem with choosing SUNY Geneseo.</p>

<p>If he plans on going to grad school and money is a factor you can't go wrong with Geneseo. I was able to graduate debt free and then attended NYU for grad. Looking back I wouldn't change a thing. Geneseo is just as good as many privates without the debt :)</p>
