Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season and looking forward to the new year. I was hoping some of you could help me make a decision on which school to attend. It would really help if you are or were at some point also facing the same sort of decision involving these schools. I'm basically torn between deciding which is a better school (career wise) to attend. Both schools have a great reputation for their programs, and if all else were equal, I would lean towards SCCO because my family lives close by. However, I would save around 25K if I went to SUNY. Also, I've been hearing rumors that SCCO is on the downward slope. I know that the president resigned last year, along with some reputable instructors, and some additional professors are expected to leave at the end of this school year. Is this true? and if it is, wow, this is really concerning!!! Has anybody else heard about this, and if so, what do you think of the situation? Also, somebody on SDN posted that the first time board passing rates at SCCO have been declining in the past few years. I believe it's at 74% for last years class. I dont' know...I'm really in a tough situation. Any advice/feedback would be much appreciated. I"m expected to make a decision before January 5th. Please help!!!
