I was going to post this in the thread about "is this a good college" but it did not seem fitting so I will make a question.

Which has the better reputation?

Formerly from NY "hobby guidance counselor", never attended any of these schools but I have many friends and family members who have gone there recently.

I know a lot about them but what do you want to know? They are known for different things. What is your major?

As far as academic status, I would rank the this way : 1. Hofstra
2. Wagner
3. St John's

Also, they have different types of reputations.

Hofstra? I mean if you're going to go Jewish you could do better at Brandeis, NYU, Yale... even Tulane if you're down to leave the NE.

I don't think Hofstra is that good. I know someone who went there and I visited her once when I was younger. I didn't like the vibe. As for rep, it's not considered a great school. Wagner, when I was also younger, looked like a typical liberal arts college and it had a nice campus, which I visited a friend at once. They are known for their theater program, well at least they were in the 80's. Now I have never been to St. John's, but I think they have the best rep out of all three schools. I know successful people who graduated from their graduate programs/professional schools. I know an Ivy Leaguer went to St. John's for her doctorate.

He asked what would be best, out of those three, for an undergraduate (I think) degree in business. The answer is Hofstra. Out of those three. Hands down.

What does "go Jewish" mean? The only Jewish affiliated university that you mentioned was Brandeis, which-the OP did not inquire about.

He seems to be considering colleges in the NY metropolitan area.
Brandeis is in Walthaham MA. Very different in any ways.

...Hofstra is a very expensive school on Long Island and as such attracts a very high percentage of Jewish students. Its Med School is also Jewish affiliated (The North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, Inc.). I believe it is in the top 20 for % Jewish and has something like 15% Jewish student population. And Brandeis is no more Jewish than by the way than Hofstra - they're both nonsectarian.
