Duquesne U / Duquesne Vs. Toledo
« on: May 25, 2005, 06:03:14 PM »
I have narrowed down my choices to Toledo and Duquesne. Has anyone else been accepted to these schools? I have some criteria with which I will make my decision and would value the input of anyone on this board.

Toledo is public with in state tuition after one year. They are both 3rd tier schools. Toledo is coming off a 94 rank last year while Duquesne is consistently ranked 3rd. Both are well respected regional programs. Toledo also has a national network of alumni with a significant distribution along the east coast (where I plan to live).

Duquesne ranks its class, Toledo doesn't. I have been told the the level of competition at Duquesne is healthy, while gpa only at Toledo will not benefit me when I look for a job or consider transferring. If I do decide to transfer it will be to a tier two. Would one of these programs be preferred over the other by an admissions officer? Duquesen profs. seem to make tests unnecessarily difficult. I have been told they are proud of the fact that students often return to tell them their exams are tougher than the bar. Toledo profs. seem to take a friendlier approach. The cost of living is cheaper in Toledo, but not by much. Pittsburgh is an awesome city, there is not much in Toledo.

Thanks in advance for any input.
