I know there must be a tons of topic like this already, but I am having a hard time picking schools. I got accepted to both Columbia and Wharton and now I need to make a decision. I would like to go into finance after school, and want to work in NY. I am living in New York right now, but I got fellowship from Wharton, and Wharton's ranking is higher than CBS, granted that should not be the main factor of my decision. Any help?

Wharton - incredible network (Columbia is good as well, but from my research Wharton is off the hook). Fellowship is a nice bonus. Wharton alums I have talked with have seemed to enjoy their experience more than Columbia (based on a limited sample size)

Flip a coin. When it's in the air you'll know which way you're hoping it will land.

I think Wharton. Better for finance,..better reputation overall, fellowship,..better facilities. I'm honestly having a hardtime seeing why you would consider CSB over Wharton under those circumstances. I'm guessing cause you love NYC so much (purely a guess)? If thats it,.the way i look at it you have a lifetime to live in nyc,...but for 2 years go to the best school you can.

If you love NY and want to live there while attending school, CBS wins. It's a great school and, though slightly below Wharton in reputation, is still tremendous in finance. You really can't go wrong with either.

My two top school choices! Where do you feel a better fit?

I want to say that if you stay in NYC it may be easier to not network as much since your friends from out of school are around. For me, while CBS is a way better fit I know that if Wharton would to accept me I would have a hard time saying no.
