Default College

Well high school is coming to an end for me in June and as of November 16th, I've applied to all of my colleges.
Choices:

Good match- CUNY Baruch--- New York
Reach- Bentley College--- Massachusetts
Good match- East Stroudsburg University- Pennsylvania
Safety- Kean University- New Jersey
Good match- Monmouth University- New Jersey
Safety- Johnson & Wales- Rhode Island
Good Match- Penn State Harrisburg- Pennsylvania

So far I've heard back from East Stroudsburg & Penn State and have been accepted to both.
The only others I really care about are Baruch & Bentley. In the long run it will be between Penn State & Baruch, if I'm accepted.

Penn State is 3 Hours away from me and wouldn't do too much damage to my car's lease because its something like 300 miles for a round trip.
With Baruch, I wouldn't even need my car since its in the city and would probably sell my lease and just share a car with my dad when i come home, he will be getting a new car around the same time I leave for college.

I'm going to visit East Stroudsburg on Saturday with a friend to check it out and plan to visit Penn State after January Midterms in school with my dad.

Awesomeness! Have fun at college. Just make sure you choose a school that feels right for you and disregard what everyone else says about colleges. You're choosing a place for yourself, not for others.

Titan Steel is having trouble accessing the site, but he read this topic and said he wants to help out - So I'm sure he'll drop by as soon as he can log in ;)

Consider California too. Depending on what you're after USC, Pepperdine, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, UCLA, Stanford, among others could be great choices. Yeah it's on the opposite coast from your choices, but you might just enjoy striking out on a new trail.

If I may be so bold, why all the small schools? I see no schools big enough to have a division 1A football team in that list.

Too late for UCs (and I think CSUs, too), the application deadline passed already.

Business I think.

PS: Sig images are allowed now, AFAIK.

Steven, do you have an idea the major you want to study? When I was in your shoes, I narrowed down what I wanted to do, then started looking at colleges.

hmmm thats what i thought it was (baruch) but i wasnt sure. ill probably end up looking there (going into some business field sounds interesting for me).

thanks for the sig pic update, but im still waiting for the old forum to go back up so i can get my pic back (unless stevenzoz still has it on his comp).

I want to major in business marketing and minor in business management.

all of those schools offer business and I don't want to go more than 3 to 5 hours away from home (a long drive, nothing more)

The size of the school isnt much of a concern to me im just looking for colleges that look appealing to me.
i believe the biggest one on my list is psu harrisburg

on a side note i got into johnson & wales today with a scholarship for $3,500 a year which barely helps because with room & board, books, etc everything will still cost about $27,000
