interesting.  so i guess employers have to look at transcripts to get a feel for how a student did?  or perhaps graduating with honors is what they look for...

as far as hofstra goes, there are so many schools ahead of it in nyc that i dont think it is worth it.  plus i really dont want to live on long island.  between buffalo and miami, i think you are right, i dont think one has a better chance of getting a job in nyc from either school, a slim chance coming from both.  however, miami grads do very well as far as i have seen in miami and i would rather attend school, live and work in miami for 5 years or so and then go to nyc than do the same in western ny.  not that i am hating on upstate ny, i am from saratoga springs, but i just have no desire to live in upstate ny any more, at least for a while.  of course there is still a decent chance i will attend buffalo because it is so much cheaper, and also because my girlfriend is applying there for grad school.  so i guess i'll just have to see what happens.

anyway, can any of you guys tell me a little more about the grading system?  one of you alluded to the fact that some classes don't have grades?  is that just some or all?  i recently heard that there are grades but there is no curve, so profs can give out as many a's as they like, no ranks, and no gpa.  i dont really understand how there is no gpa if there are grades because it would be quite easy, obviously, to calculate your gpa.  the no ranks thing is cool i guess, makes students less competitive with eachother, i assume, but then how do employers differentiate between students?  i would really appreciate if anyone can shed a little light on this topic.

is there really no one else out there considering buffalo?  i want some more info, at this point i am seriously leaning towards miami despite the difference in cost (no $$ from either).

ridiculous... although i kind of like them because my top options right now are miami and buffalo, both ranked in the top tier!!!  but both ranked behind cooley :-\... double edged sword i guess.
