Hello everyone,

Never thought I'd end up launching a topic in this section, but I'm kind of torn. I have three offers and I have real trouble choosing between two of them. I really like all three, so basically I would be happy to go to either of them, but I also have a ranking in my mind. Thus, I didn't include Yale in the poll, as Haas is my top choice and since neither offered $$, I'd take Haas over Yale for sure. I have a non-traditional background and my career goals are also somewhat non-traditional, although they are finance-related. I'm also not planning on staying in the US after graduation. Haas My first choice. They have all I need academically, I also visited and simply fell in love with the place and the people. Stern Finance academics are obviously great, plus NY isn't a bad place to live either, both from a personal and career standpoint. *** Basically the question is: would you leave the money on the table in my place? (It's 1 year's tuition.) Any advice/opinion much appreciated! Current Student Status: Too close for missiles, switching to guns.

1 years tuition is nothing to sneeze at, but it sounds like Haas is the answer. Money is a renewable resource: it comes and goes. Time is not renewable. The next two years of your life is only going to happen once. Do you want to go to Stern and constantly play the "what if" game in regards to Haas?

You got into your top choice. Go and don't look back; Many of us on this forum wish we could be so fortunate to have been admitted by our top choice.

Go and don't look back; Many of us on this forum wish we could be so fortunate to have been admitted by our top choice. Sage advice. Two other things to consider: (1) cost of living will be much lower at Haas and (2) Berkeley, I believe, has a much better brand abroad than NYU. So, no, you're not crazy for wanting to choose Haas in this situation, although I wouldn't blame you if you selected Stern either!
