I voted NYU as I tend to agree with solaris that you're likely to end up working in NYC anyway if you want to get hired by one of the many firms headquartered there, so the closer you are to the action the better off you'll be. The scholarship is of course a big perk as well. I might be a bit partial towards wanting to live in NYC myself though rather than in Durham.

Thanks for all of the input everyone. Now if I could only find a three-sided coin to flip...

Or you could roll a dice and assign two values to each school? :)

BTW... any chance you want to fill us in a bit on your stats that lead to the predicatment you're in. I know I'd be interested in finding out some more info. :)

I hae just found this forum while googling a similar dilemma I have been having- great topic herew. I'm between NYU and UNC and both schools have offered me some amount of $. I'm an internatioanl so money is more important for me but nevertheless I will go for NYU (I'm in non-profit though) just wanted to share my situ- and I've voted for Stern.

good luck

I don't think it's about arrogance. A lot of scholarship distribution is about building a class with different profiles. And let's not forget that it's also highly dependent on the program's ability to fund them (and foregoing tuition) through its endowment.

I got $$ offers from Booth and Kellogg, but I don't think MIT is being arrogant for not offering me $$--maybe they just have a bunch of people like me at Sloan whereas B and K need more.

BTW, my vote's for Duke, even though I'd also be happy going to NYU for marketing.

well- MIT > Booth/Kellogg (Maybe not > Booth) BUT Duke is not > NYU - not so clear at least.

All good offers, but ı'd go with the money here- you will make it up to good jobs at either of those schools DUke or NYU or UNC will not get you a job that will pay you +25k a year- I mean that will depend on you. so really, go for the money. and this time maybe the money with the most opt.offer which is NYU

All those > and < with the rankings are ridiculous as riverripper has put it very well above.

If you get a job out of Duke, I bet you would be able to get the same or equivalent job coming out of NYU...its not like they will force you to become a banker if you got to NYU.


Amazing wrap-up! So why not take the money from NYU and go for it... Anyways, I'm going to stop here- best of luck to you with your decision- this has been a rather interesting thread...

Let us know of your pick!
