I was a marketing undergrad who decided I wanted to become a city planner, I went to University of New Haven for a semester to try out some courses to make sure it was the right fit. I then applied to Northeastern and Rutgers. I was accepted into Northeaster's MURP program and received a scholarship. If I defer, like I was originally going to do before they told me about the scholarship, then I would have to give up the scholarship and risk not getting it in the fall. Unfortunately, I have not heard back from Rutgers about my acceptance yet. I know that Northeastern is not PAB certified. I don't really want to have three different masters program on my resume because that makes me look like a flake. I am extremely lucky and my parents are willing to pay for my schooling so money is not the issue. So my question is, how important is the PAB certification and would it be better to take the gamble and hope Rutgers accepts me or go with Northeastern and the scholarship?
