where to go to school: George Mason, Catholic University, Pace

<p>I am in a real dilemma here, I am trying to decide where to go to school.</p>

<p>My options are George Mason, Catholic University and Pace University (NYC), I was wondering from what you guys know which one do you think would be a better school?</p>

<p>My friend is also in this situation and was wondering what was better, Northeastern or American? </p>

<p>Please help :)</p>

<p>They are both excellent schools and you can get a fine education at either. Congradulations. George Mason is a bit more of a commuter school -- many kids go home on weekends. One of my cousins went there, graduated a couple years ago, and lived at home, but was vry happy. On the other hand, if you like privacy, good chance your dorm room will be a single on weekends. I am certain you know, its not in DC, but a very quick metro ride in. Virginia has been putting a lot of $$$ into GMU, and they have some top people, especially in economics. Catholic has a more established reputation, and depending on finaid will be more expensive.</p>

<p>thank you so much for your input, George Mason being a commuter school was something that I was worried about because I live close but I am really not looking to go home that often but the con of Catholic is its size.</p>

<p>I know of someone who is very happy at Catholic. Also, know of kids at both Northeastern and American and they like it as well. Best of luck with your decision.</p>

<p>any other thoughts...</p>

<p>George Mason is not a commuter school anymore. They just built a ton of housing on campus, the place is huge now, completely different. Like the comment said above they put a ton of $$ into GMU and still are pumping money into it. I have never heard of Catholic until recent, its not very well known.</p>

<p>Catholic University has been around for over 100 years and in the Catholic community it is VERY well known, and has some superb progrrams and a decent law school. GMU is fine. But they are different schools completely. Visit both and see what you like or don't like.</p>
