Syracuse vs. Hofstra?

Syracuse vs. Hofstra?
« on: June 18, 2007, 10:09:21 PM »
I've been accepted to Syracuse but wait-listed at Hofstra.  However, in the advent that I am accepted, which school would you pick?  I'm from out of state and don't know which school has the better reputation, connections, etc.  I know that they are both T3 schools.

Any help/information would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know about Syracuse, but Hofstra was not that nice to me when I visited.  Plus, you can ski at Syracuse, and it's cheaper to live there than Long Island.  I'd pick Syracuse, nothing else considered.

I'm from Syracuse.  The law school has a decent reputation around here, but mostly because noone knows much about anything.  It is pretty cheap to live in Syracuse (~550/month for a 2-bedroom), but it also sucks for the most part.

There are not a lot of options as far as eating/hanging out goes here, and the average person is fairly uneducated and conservative.  The undergraduate student body (NOT necessarily the law school) is predominantly comprised of frat-style, DMB fan-guys, and tramp-stamped brainless girls.  However, I do know a few stand-up Syracuse alumni. 

I'm not sure where you're from, but moving to Syracuse might be a downgrade in your quality of life.
