I don't know which place has a better program. However, my mom (many, many years ago) graduated from LIU. She loved it. UT has smaller classes and I have heard from several people that it is a very nice college. I think it would depend on what environment you prefer. The life in NYC? The life in Tampa? NYC has it all (IMO). However, living in NYC is very the stressful and hectic. I lived in NYC for 28 years. I then moved to NJ for 17 years. I have been down here now for 4 1/2 years. I like the weather, beach, etc, etc. I also loved being close, but not living, in NYC. There is so much to offer in NYC.

I don't know where you live, but I think you should come down and visit UT's campus, then LIU's campus. Walk around the campus. Maybe make an appointment with a counsellor in each university to see if you can speak to other students in the program.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. I think both are excellent universities.

You don't mention if you are from Tampa Bay or not but I taught up North and here and would recommend UT since it is an accredited school (SACS and AACSB) and has a LOT of students from the NY/NJ metro area. Many come to UT since they would rather be someplace warm than cold. If you have not visited the UT campus, please do--it's worth seeing it first hand. As another person pointed out, the classes are small. The profs know your name by the end of the third week (that may or may not be a good thing to you) and are very accessible. I teach there (and am probably biased) but given your choices, I'd recommend UT. Call the Graduate Programs Office and ask for Fernando. He's very helpful and the office will answer all your questions. Best of luck with your choice!
