    DePaul vs Brooklyn College (Feirstein) for screenwriting

    Not sure which would be the better choice, can anyone shed some light? DePaul is a little more established and seems to be gaining traction, New York seems like a better hub for opportunities post grad...anybody have experience or inside knowledge here? Thank you all
