According to Niche.com, Binghamton is ranked #12 while Cortland isn't ranked. However, Binghamton appears harder to get into as its acceptance rate is 40% compared to Cortland's 48%. I hope this helps!

Something to consider is the fit and culture of the schools as well. While using rankings can be a good idea to get a general sense of where a school is academically for a certain program that doesn't necessarily mean that school will be a good fit for you. Rankings aren't everything so I'd recommend visiting the campuses when you get a chance. It might be better for you to go to a lower ranked school if you think the culture will fit you better than go to a higher ranked school but not like the atmosphere. Rankings don't mean much if you need to transfer out because you're not enjoying yourself!
