Hello everyone, I was accepted to two schools for Media Studies/Communications Masters Programs

Temple University in Philadelphia (Located downtown)
Rutgers University in NJ (New Brunswick)

I plan on being a professor (masters or higher is a must) but would also look at other opportunities in the field.

Can anyone tell me about any of these schools or areas?
I'll be going into debt for one of them.

My gut says Rutgers as it's a well respected state flagship school and likely cheaper, but I don't know the field of study. Which one is ranked higher for the department?

Also, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

Hey all, thanks for the support. I chose Temple over Rutgers.
Their masters program in Media Studies & Production (the one I applied to) is better, more recognized and highly regarded.
The area (downtown Philadelphia) is easier to navigate and without a personal vehicle.
Funding may be rough but I've picked up a second job in addition to more hours at my store and will save as much as possible before I start in August.
