Just asking your opinions concerning my schooling. I was planning to move to Philly to attend the Drexel ACE program which begins in March, but just last week I heard from SUNY Binghamton that I was accepted to their BAT program beginning in May. I was extremely excited about moving to Philly (I loved the city), but Binghamton is much more affordable.
Unfortunately, the area of Binghamton is a dreary suburb. Because I am in-state, Binghamton will only cost around 13grand, with rents as low as 400 dollars a month. It is 12 months and ends in May 2012. Drexel University costs around 39grand and rents are around 1300 dollars a month, and it ends in Feb 2012. Do you think I should suck up the misery that is Binghamton, NY and just go there due to the difference in price? Thanks for your opinions!
P.S. Both schools
are ranked similarly and highly regarded. SUNY Binghamton is regarded as the best NY state school.
