I certainly agree with you on the fact that it is just a magazine- my only fear is how people will look at my degree when I am looking for a job - from what I've heard many firms do look into a school's ranking. But, you are right, it should definitely not be a top priority.

Any yes, I definitely am a "nervous Nelly"...I just want to make sure I'm making the best choice.

I appreciate all your input.

After the past day's input, I was considering Nova over Temple.  HOwever, the 2012 rankings just came out, and now Temple climbed to 58, while Nova fell to 101.  I know that rankings aren't the biggest deal if it is just 10 or 20 spots, but what about 50... Especially because the trend has now been Nova falling for 3 years now...

Does this impact the decision I should make?

Legend, you're right. I really appreciate your input.
I have already visited Villanova and have plans to visit Temple next week so I'll see how it goes.

Thank you both for your input!

Temple is ranked 61 while Villanova is ranked 84.
However in the past years they were usually around the same ranking but Nova had a scandal last year that caused them to drop in rankings. They claim that it shouldn't have an impact on the job market and that they believe that their rankings will go back up- but who knows.
I got a full scholarship to Villanova (which is aprox 40k a yr) and a nice scholarship to Temple as well (which is aprox 19k a year)

I'm torn on where to go- any suggestions?
