Did you mean:
- Rutgers ( alrdy said , the best option ? )
- Vassar ( noncommercial law ..)
-Columbia ( to get there )
- Cornell (possible ? )
- Binghamton ( quite far and not close to home .. good choice ? )
- Boston University ( now )
- Boston College ( now )
- Penn State University Park ( now , but a cheaper state school as well ? )
You are correct that Stony Brook is to the sciences . But New York public schools are mainly upstate so far from home and most of them are not worth it to go from Queens College which is a solid school . The only ones really worth SUNYs IMO they are better than Queens ( and CUNYs good for that matter) are Buffalo , Binghamton , Stony Brook , and Geneseo . Unfortunately , Buffalo and Stony Brook are science schools . If you can afford to soldiers listed above , any of them could make good decisions. On the bad side ... Most schools allow scholarships to transfers as the last thing you put money on (ie , giving money to prospective freshmen first and leave the rest for transfers ) .
My cousin goes to Cornell University in Ithaca , New York , but its an Ivy League , so it will be a bit hard to get but try your luck anyway , also of the University of new York I hear is big so you could also try a shot at it . For all I know , I think Rutgers will probably be a good game , I have a friend who goes there and they like what they probably would.
