What the Expert Says:

Your question is one that is asked about higher education institutions across the nation. Please consider the following factors in determining the right fit for you after high school:

1) Financial factor- cost of the college, scholarship opportunities, loans and other key issues.

2) Size factor- some students feel very comfortable in a large university setting, while others are much more comfortable in a smaller school setting.

3) Strength of the Program of Study- The area of focus regarding your major is important to consider. In other words, even if a college/university has a high ranking, this does not mean that all of their major programs are as good. Check carefully in the area of your major to determine the strength of that area of study.

Good luck!

Hi there,

Both schools have their pluses and minuses. I'd use a respected college ranking site (such as US News and The Princenton Review, linked below) to figure out which school is "better" in the categories I'm interested in.

I would encourage you to NOT look at ranking but instead spend time to look at the schools themselves at the offerings of each program, how that outlook fits with your career goals, etc.. If you wish to use the rankings then please do your research and make sure that the criterion that the company that did what ever ranking you are looking at used, match with things that are of importance to you.
