Are there people who have not been able to?Most out-of-state students are able to qualify as in-state for tuition purposes after the first year, so that really shouldn't be too much of an issue.
AE has cheaper housing than columbus? The cost of living in Columbus is extremely reasonable. Obviously, NYC is much cooler than Columbus, though.
buuuut it's really columbus vs. the bronx (more specifically).Also location, it's Columbus vs NYC.
nah, at einstein you're a bus ride or a hefty walk away from the closest subway... which, in NYC, classifies you as being in a pretty isolated area. NYC's amazing public transportation doesn't extend to all areas in all boroughs-- one of the many interesting sociological observations you can make if you're here. (usually it's low-income neighborhoods that end up relying on buses instead of subways, or if they do have a subway, it's elevated instead of underground. not always, but usually. just a fun fact.)Wow. Congrats on getting off the deferred list at Ohio State!
I agree with the above posters. Location seems like the one reason to choose Einstein over Ohio State. Cheap housing combined with a great public transportation system (within NYC) is a big plus. Columbus is a fairly large city, but a car is probably necessary. Also, for culture. AECOM has a diverse class, but is part of traditionally Jewish university if you are Jewish or are interested in immersing yourself in that culture.
I say go with Ohio State for the program, facilities, prestige, and cost. I think a degree at Ohio State can take you farther, but that's also dependent on the person.
And OSU football.thanks for the responses everyone, as you can tell I'm still really divided. And even though its isolated, I have every intention of going into the city often. The one thing I think I'll really miss at AECOM is the undergrad feel and amazing gym at OSU haha
