Without a question, Columbia. Not even close. If I had a full ride at UNC and nothing at Columbia it would still be my choice in this situation.

I agree 100%. Go with the brand name, b/c in real estate the brand name will help get you the interview. Once you have the interview, it is on you to close the deal. Plus Columbia has a much better national presense, and specifically a presence in NY where there are tons of Real Estate finance types of jobs. Columbia by a LONG shot in this one...

Besides Columbia being a 100x better brand name than UNC, I was under the impression that it also had a strong real estate program.

It is. I was emphasizing this and not the brand name. Columbia has one of the top if not the top real estate programs.

Not sure I bring much to the table on this from an architect, but one of our clients (developer) I worked with was a Columbia MBA grad. In terms of development jobs, which is what he was interested in landing upon graduation, he had to find it on his own. He then went on to tell me that if I want to do development, UNC could be the best program.

However, that was because at Columbia all the real estate recruitment was for The Street, he said.
