  1. @WilliamZT Hi, what about the same decision but between nyu and northwestern?? What would be your thoughts
  2. I am trying to decide between which two Biotechnology programs to attend in the fall. The first program is the NYU Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship Program which is great because of its interdisciplinary curriculum in both biotechnology and business. They also offerered me a generous scholarship. On visiting the campus and speaking with faculty it seems promising. I was selected for an additional scholarship and feel like the financial aid office is forthcoming with working with me to cover tuition costs. The research areas are good with opportunities to do research at the renowned memorial Sloan Kettering cancer center. Their career center also seems to be very effective with support for internships, interviews, jobs and whatnot and NY is at the center of it all. There is however no denying that cost of living and accommodation in the city is ridiculously high. On the other hand, Northwestern University's Biotechnology program comes with a minor in Engineering management/ Entrepreneurship with a similar flexibility to NYU but with a seemingly greater concentration on developing wet lab skills. It's location in Evanston, IL a Chicago school town is nice and it's a large campus. On visiting the campus, the faculty also seem welcoming and they have interesting personal development courses, site-visits to biotechnology companies on the east coast for networking, career fairs and great internship assistance. The tuition is much higher than that of NYU and the scholarship while generous, doesn't cover much. I would have to look to loans and aid to cover the chunk. The research areas are also nice with opportunities to work in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and cancer biology at the northwestern school of medicine. At this point, I don't know which school to consider because I would gladly go to any of them as they are both great schools and I'm privileged to be considered for both. I don't know if Northwestern is worth taking out large loans for in comparison to NYU that the tuition is mostly covered by scholarship. I can't imagine which program would make me stand out with limitless opportunities at the end of the duration. I need any suggestions, opinions, ideas and help that would enable me to see some light.. Thank you!!
