How did you decide??

4 posts in this topic

Hi ya'll,

For those who have been accepted to a few schools..how did you choose? What criteria did you use to decide? I've received 2 offers and I am already feeling conflicted (still waiting to hear from 4 others). Any advice you could give would be appreciated. Thank you!

I was accepted to three schools. I was torn between two, so I visited/sat in one classes at both. One school was not very welcoming at all, and the class size was very large, which ended up making my decision for me.

Besides stalking forums? Lol 

Well, when deciding between SBU & Fordham I went straight to the course descriptions and curriculum of each program (including field placements). I also compared the tuition rate and that's when I made my decision. I thought, "how much debt is too much debt" "Do I want to be in so much debt?" My own answer was "no" so I declined.
