I guess most people will choose columbia if they have to decide between columbia and NYU, considering specialty placement, board score,and class size in Columbia. However, I don't know what to do between two schools after I got $25000 per year scholarship from NYU. I need to send deposit and confirmation as soon as possible. I am thinking, thinking but it is very hard to deny such a big money that will relieve my burden of debt after graduation. (app. $80000 less debt!!) On the other hand, NYU seems too big and I cannot totally ignore all the bad things about NYU. I hope all the bad things are not true.(attrition rate / postgraduate placement/ low board score) What should I consider in deciding school? Do you guys think I have to go to Columbia and decline NYU? Please, I am very serious and I need some advice from dental students and practioners. Thanks alot!
