Which College Should I go to?

Hi, so current situation:

3.8 GPA at a Comm. College.

Accepted to:
Salem State U.
UMass Boston
Boston C
Northeastern U

The financing is not an issue at any school but will my life be any different as a commuter student? I'm having trouble deciding on where to go since I am a single parent of two and Salem State U and UMass Boston. would be convenient because I feel like I would be a better fit there as a commuter but I would really love to go to Boston C or Northeastern U because they are well known and very competitive from what I've learned.

If I can get some advice that would be great! I feel like college is once in a life time and I really want to make a great choice that I wouldn't regret.

Does it really matter what college I get my BA from? I feel like it do..and from what I hear from others it does. But some people are telling me that it does not matter on where i get my BA from, I will succeed if I put forth the effort.

Really stressful thinking about this, any advice?

    Have you looked into the courses and curriculum for your major at each school to see which one may be the best academic fit?

    Go to Northeastern or BC. Like you said, you're a single parents of two- those two schools have better reps which lead to better jobs which lead to more money for your family.

    I don't know about BC, but Northeastern has plenty of commuters (about 11%) so you won't be alone.
    I would expect fewer at BC - Commuter Lounge Has Several Uses - News - The Heights - Boston College

    If finances are not a problem I would take NEU or BC over the state schools.

    Having grown up in a single parent household It's hard to me to envision finances not being an issue. If they truly aren't then I agree with Beantowngirl. Otherwise choose the least expensive and commute.

    Thanks, the finances are for the most part taken care, I am a returning veteran and they do pay for 3/4 if not all of my schooling (if private). I am really leaning towards NEU for their co-op program though. Thanks everyone this will be tough...
