I know a huge factor is if I want to end up living in california vs NYC, but coming from the South, both seem like they'd be great places to live in.

Unfortunately this is what it comes down to as UCLA places a huge chunk of their graduates in LA, and NYU naturally places in NYC.

It really depends on what type of finance jobs you're looking at. If you want wall street, NYU is the obvious choice. Otherwise, since you're coming from the south and aren't tied to either area, I'd do research on the two cities, not just the schools.

For instance, LA is very spread out, traffic sucks, but the weather is great, and places like Hermosa Beach, Huntington beach, etc, are a short drive away. New York may be congested, but it's very convenient to get around on foot or subway...even if you live in New Jersey.

Good luck!

Dood, the other people nailed it. Go where you'd like to work after graduation. You'll have to network regardless of which school you go to.
