I chose SHU over NYIT last year...So far it has been a great decision! Both programs are wonderful and have tons to offer! SHU is a bit smaller with ~30 students/class. @Ibuchholz2127, I had the same mindset about living at home and saving money, I currently live at home and it works out well, and I recommend it because PA school is expensive....In relation to SHU and NYIT PANCE scores....I don't know for a fact what NYIT's are but SHU has an average Pass rate of 98%...the last two classes (class of 12' and 13' both had 100%). Good Luck!
