    Picking universities

    I got accepted to two colleges so far, UW (greatest school in North West) tacoma and Portland State University, but I don't know what to choose. I head that UW Tacoma doesn't have as great of education as UW Seattle (which is kind of a turn off). So I need some opinions on which school to attend, also I'm planning on majoring CS.

    UWT:
    30g/year (instate tuition)
    Have high reputation because of UW Seattle
    Big campus
    smaller class room (compared to Seattle's)
    2 hours drive away from home (which means I would need to find housing)

    PSU:
    20g/year (30g out of state - 10g offered by the school)
    ~30 min drive away
    keep hearing it's a "good" school
    A LOT cheaper


    also here is the college sample courses for BS in CS
    PSU: https://www.pdx.edu/computer-science...6.15.rev_..pdf
    (course desc: https://www.pdx.edu/computer-science/courses)

    UWT: https://www.tacoma.uw.edu/institute-...mputer-science
    (course desc: https://www.washington.edu/students/crscatt/tcss.html)

    So excuse me if I'm wrong but, the dillema here really is that one is cheaper and the other one is better?
    I know that you said it doesn't have an education as great as Seattle. But it has a high reputation.

    In my opinion, education is something to invest in. If you can get to a better school, you should do it. You'll enjoy that later on in your life a lot.

    Best of luck!

    If it was me, I would go with the one of higher quality one over the cheaper one, Education shouldn't be something you cheap out on

    I don't know for a fact whether UW Tacoma have a better education or not (just basing off what I've heard), so that's why I provided a link to see what the school will teach to give you guys an overview and see which school would be better for my major

    It's not just about the education. You clearly stated it has a high reputation. I doubt PSU is (much) better than UWT. And UWT has a great reputation meaning after you graduated you'll have a lot more opportunities opposed to PSU.

    Yea, like UW [Seattle] graduates are often hired by big company like Google, Boeing, Microsoft, etc. but I'm not too sure about Tacoma though
