Tulane, SMU, or Gonzaga

<p>I applied early action to Tulane, SMU, and Gonzaga. I have been accepted to all three and received a small merit based scholarship to Gonzaga. I can't decide which one I should choose to attend.</p>

<p>Well, no one here can tell you which to attend either. Sorry, I know that sounded snotty and I don't mean it like that. But clearly it is impossible to tell someone based on zero information which school is right for them. If you are really looking for guidance or opinions between these three schools, you would need to tell us what you think is most important to you in a school. And it doesn't all have to be strictly school related per se. Things like sports, climate, size, urban vs. rural, etc. also are legitimate factors to consider. After all, this is essentially home for the better part of 4 years, at least. So think of what you are looking from this experience; academically, socially, surrounding environment, whatever you can think of. Then maybe people that know 2 of the 3 schools or even all 3 can compare them for the factors you are looking at.</p>

<p>sorry I should have added more information about myself. currently I am planning on majoring in engineering, but I'm still not sure what kind and I also might change my mind completely. I do care about sports I played football through highschool but I don't wish to continue it in college. I would like a team to follow though. I currently live in Colorado and would like to attend a college with a warmer climate. I also want medium sized school about 5000. I think it would be fun to go to a college in a city but thats not that important</p>

<p>OK, maybe others know more about engineering at SMU and Gonzaga. Tulane, as you may know, only offers engineering degrees in Chemical and Biomedical. They do have cooperative programs with Vanderbilt and Johns Hopkins for the other engineering degrees, you can find those programs on Tulane's web site. Again, don't know how this compares to the other schools, but if you are unsure of your major Tulane is one of the easiest schools to explore different majors and change your mind. This is because you don't get accepted to the engineering school (or the business school or any other school within Tulane), but just to Tulane. So you can shift majors as much as you want for your first 2 years.</p>

<p>If an urban and warm environment are your preference, then that favors SMU and Tulane. New Orleans is definitely a fun city, but I like Dallas a lot myself. I think a student could have a great experience in either location. To me, NOLA is a more "accessable" city, but I might be just a little biased.</p>

<p>Hmmmm, Spokane, Dallas, or NOLA? Is there a real choice here? :)</p>

<p>I actually think Dallas is a really nice city (never been to Spokane), but I don't see it as much as a young person's/college town type place. I mean I am sure there is plenty to do, but idad is right. It's no New Orleans.</p>

<p>I live in Spokane and my parents (both civil engineers) say Gonzaga is awful for engineering. They hate working with Gonzaga engineers. This could be just the civil engineering branch, or could have changed recently, but look into it more and make sure its decent before you go.</p>

<p>Also Spokane is a nice city but Gonzaga is not in a nice area. It's not unsafe just run down. </p>

<p>And only their basketball team is any good.</p>
