Which graduate program should I choose – SUNY Buffalo or SUNY Binghamton?
I’m a 23 year old man deciding between 2 schools, both of which would provide me with a tuition waiver and stipend to live on. I currently work a full-time job that pays relatively well, but I’m itching to go to school to go to school to research in a field I’m passionate about.

I may be biased but I will say for graduate school Buffalo is,better than Binghamton. Much bigger University with a much bigger research profile. We used to get snowy winters, it has changed, we get few isolated snow storms or isolated cold fronts and long stretches of mild weather. Of course in the summer, it is better than any place I have been to among 45 states.
Both are great schools, but one is likely a better fit for you. The best way to find out is to do a little more research in the real world. Visit campus, talk to faculty and grad students, and get a sense of what the area is like. Your highly evolved brain is like an amazing computer that can process vast amounts of information simultaneously to help you decide; i.e. some call it “that gut feeling”. If after all that you’re still undecided, flip a coin. While it’s in the air you’ll know which way you are hoping it will land: follow that instinct.
