Hi, I have a problem. I got accepted into both of the schools listed above but I am torn between which one to go to. Both of the schools are located in NY. SJU is a 0-6 year program, but if I go there, I would have to commute since it is near my house. However, I really want to dorm, since my house is full of distractions and I need to learn how to fend for myself so to speak. SUNY Buffalo is the traditional 2 years prereq w/ PCAT and then you apply to the 4 year pharm school. I heard that buffalo is quite competitive but I think I could handle it but maybe I am getting too ahead of myself. Basically, is the "guarantee" of a pharm degree from SJU worth giving up something that I really want? I talked to my parents about nearby apartments but they said it would be too expensive and the same goes for SJU dorming. Thank you for any help.
