Nancy B.’s Answer
Both schools are different, one is private and the other is a public university. Here are some factors you may want to consider:
-academic fit (GPA, SAT/ACT averages of admitted students)
-private vs. public university
-location of school
-work study programs
Since both schools are highly competitive, academic fit and preparedness is important to consider. Consider doing research on CollegeBoard's Big Future website to explore the average SAT/ACT and GPA of students who are admitted to both schools. Make a list of things that are important to you and that you want during your college experience. Good luck!
