awkward follows you like a beer chasing a shot of tequila.
all other factors aside, just on the name of the school, where would you go?
Neither name is going to carry you outside of NJ and PA. Deciding based on the name is a terrible idea.I'd go to the school that's cheaper. Can you get in-state tuition at R-C? If so go there.
From what I remember, Penn State doesn't offer an in-state tuition discount to anyone (even PA residents) and is essentially run like a private law school.
Did I say I was deciding based on the name? no. It's a simple question.
