Hi, I recently was accepted into two colleges:
1.Franklin college Switzerland
2. AIU london

I have no idea which one to go to. I am so torn. Please, if you have been to either place or even have been to both give me you opinion.
Even if you have attended the schools that would great also.

I am the type of person who doesn't like extreme cold and super high prices. I want a friendly place that I can attend college and make friends both in college and locals. I want to have a nightlife as well.

Aiu is located in london near regents park
FC is located in Lugano on the border of italy and Swiss.

So please tell me pros and cons of both places or schools.

Thanks again.

Having been Dean of Administration at FC I may be biased, but the curriculum is excellent. It all depends whether you intend to mainly acquire knowledge or find that partying is more of your inclination.
Lugano is a very cosmopolitan town, expensive if you don't know the value of the best, and Franklin College (Foundation based in New York) could be rated along these lines.

Well, I am going to major in international business with high hopes of owning my own company one day. I am not looking for a party, but sometimes may be nice to hang out with friends at a fun place. I want a sold education that will take me far. Originally this was my dream school! I really want to go! But then I got my hopes down b/c i thought i didn't have the sat score. And I applied to the London school.

Also, since you were affiliated with the school, do you know if the credits can be transferred? Also do you know what the typical amount of Financial aid/financial help is given by the school?
