Admissions[ edit ] Macaulay Honors College accepts applications from high school seniors applying for the first time to be freshman immediately following their senior year.
In recent episodes, we have focused our virtual tour of colleges on the public and private higher education institutions in the Mid-Atlantic region: As we explained then, we put off a look at colleges in New York which is, of course, part of the Mid-Atlantic region because we knew that it was the home state of many of our listeners, and we knew that they would be especially interested in it.
It is possible that other listeners are also interested in New York State, perhaps because it has more four-year colleges than any other state—about Today, we will look at public four-year colleges in New York. They can be found in two massive systems of public higher education, two of the very biggest in the nation: Plus, there are a couple of special additional public choices we will take a glance at.
And, as we say every time, no college—not even one in our home state—has asked us or paid us anything to include it. These are our own choices. Currently, SUNY comprises 64 institutions, almost half of which 30 are community colleges.
Here is an interesting fact: And here is another: But we have also talked a fair amount about how 70 percent or so of high school students stay in their home state for college. Students can apply to most SUNY campuses by completing one online application and submitting all of their documents just once.
SUNY advises students to apply by December 1 to ensure optimal financial aid, degree program choice, and campus housing. Today, it offers about 17, undergraduates and about 8, graduate and professional students 68 undergraduate degree programs and more than graduate degree programs in its colleges and schools of arts and sciences, business, engineering and applied sciences, journalism the only undergraduate school of journalism in a public New York universitymarine and atmospheric sciences, social welfare, nursing, health technology and management, dental medicine, and medicine.
It is well known and respected for its science, engineering, and medical programs, and it co-manages Brookhaven National Laboratory, a federal research laboratory. Stony Brook is one of the universities of choice for bright New York City students who are looking to attend a public college for financial reasons.
About 25 percent of its undergraduates are Asian. Both commuter and residential students are welcomed into College life.
First-year resident members of each College are housed together in the same residential quadrangle. Like other SUNY campuses, undergraduates are required to take a broad array of liberal arts and sciences courses to satisfy general education distribution requirements.
Like most major universities, Stony Brook offers a variety of study abroad opportunities and 20 varsity sports teams.
And, of course, there are plenty of activities on campus, though my understanding is that some students who live on Long Island or in New York City go home on weekends. Their average high school GPA was about a 3. Binghamton University is in the relatively small upstate New York suburb of Vestal.
Today it offers about 13, undergraduates and about 3, graduate and professional students studies in seven schools and colleges: A new graduate School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will open in About 20 percent of its undergraduates stay at Binghamton to earn a graduate degree.
Almost 70 percent of undergraduates earn their degrees in the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences, the oldest college at Binghamton. Like Stony Brook, Binghamton has broad liberal arts and sciences general education requirements for its undergraduate students.
Binghamton fields 21 varsity sports teams and offers a lot of outdoor recreational activities in nearby state parks. If students prefer a more urban location, then either the University at Buffalo or the University at Albany might be preferable to Binghamton and Stony Brook. Undergraduate enrollment at Buffalo is the highest of the four university centers at about 20, students, while undergraduate enrollment at Albany is the lowest at about 13, students.
So these are all substantial universities, which would seem really big to any freshman—albeit nothing close to the largest of the flagship universities we have talked about earlier in our virtual tour.
Incoming freshman SAT scores are just a bit lower at Buffalo and Albany, which might put them in reach of more students. There are three specialized SUNY institutions worth a quick mention, even though they will likely be of interest only to a limited audience: Students study at the Syracuse campus and on 25, acres of property throughout New York State.Macaulay Honors College @ CSI SAT (Math and Reading only) didn't take ACT 4 on AP Exams (Bio, Phys, US History) Rank 17 out of (not sure if this helps) Can't tell you much about the program itself because i am an incoming freshmen.
