PSU vs Emory Undergrad
I'm having a tough time choosing between Emory and Penn State as a safety school for my undergrad degree. I am applying to 14 other schools, including a number of target schools such as Dartmouth, UCB, UCLA, and USC. I'd like to pursue IB but preferably on the west coast in SF/LA, and do not intend to pursue IB in NY or on the east coast whatsoever.
From what I know, Penn State has better recruiting for IB whereas Emory seems to be more prestigious overall. In addition, Emory has a better location (since it's in a large city) while PSU is in its own college town. So, which of these colleges would you prefer?
