CU-Boulder vs. CSU Honors

Which would you go with? With my stats, I didn't get automatically admitted to the honors program at CSU, but I was still invited to apply. So if I get into the honors, which do you think would be a better option? I have the presidential scholarship at CSU ($36,000 over four years), and nothing at CU yet. I assume that I'll get some sort of scholarship, but probably not that much. My major is political science by the way.

    Is money an issue for you? I don't know too much about the CSU Honors program...

    Well money is definitely an issue, but we can probably make it work either way. They said the average SAT of the CSU Honors program is like 1350... so they have some pretty high quality students in there.

    I visited both, and they both had a different feeling, for lack of a better phrase. I'd go with honors at CSU if you get in (the scholarship really makes it worthwhile), but if not, CU Boulder is a better choice IMO. But really, just go to whichever you feel the most comfortable with.
