I just posted this to the MBA Game Plan forum and was wondering if the general gmat club had any ideas on my decision between chicago and cornell.
The deal is..
I was accepted to Cornell several months ago and was really looking forward to attending but recently got off the waitlist for U Chicago. To be honest I really didn't like Chicago all that much (it fealt like a degree factory) and I was looking forward to the small strong collaborative community of Cornell.
My problem is though I'm leaning toward Cornell and want to work in finance in NYC (I'm in finance now in NYC) am I crazy to pick Cornell over Chicago? Also, it seems that Chicago has a better rep on Wall Street from a few people I've spoken to, is this true? Would picking Cornell over Chicago hurt my career? Please tell me I'm not crazy to pick Ithaca over Chicago.
Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
