My daughter went to a very large NY City University for two years. She hated it. There was little to no interaction with her professors.
She stayed for two years and then was accepted as a transfer student to a small liberal arts college where there was one professor for 7 students. She flourished in that environment. Of course, she is also extremely ambitious which counts for alot.
My DH went to city and state colleges (relatively inexpensive) but he was very ambitious and did very well career wise.
Obviously a key factor is both my daughters and their father are very hard working ambitious people.

That seems backwards to me. It is the ambitious students that can thrive in large university classrooms because they don't need individual attention.
