Yes, it's another one of these. I apologize in advance.
But... I need to make a decision basically by December 3rd (I applied for spring term admissions).
I'm a transportation guy (with some experience), but also enjoy the other aspects of planning. I have an undergrad degree in anthropology and biology and a masters degree in experimental psychology. I can deal with numbers. I have a history of going to private, urban universities.
I'm struggling to decide between Rutgers, NYU and Hunter (MUP programs).
Can someone help?
I'd like to go to a program in a city, with minimal bureaucracy, transportation research opportunities both on campus and off, both mathematically and policy-based course offerings in transportation, and a good student planning culture on campus. The less of a commuter school-vibe I get, the better. Also, the student culture outside of the program is mildly important to me too. I'd prefer a smarter student body.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'd be happy to clarify anything as well.
