Hi All,

I need your help in deciding which University to choose considering following factors

2. SUNY Buffalo - MS Finance Quant Track - 1.5 years course - 34K fee

3. Rochester Institute of Technology (Saunders)- Computational Finance - 1 year course - 24 K fee after scholarship

I personally think RPI has the best brand. Not sure how it is regarded internationally. Troy NY is closer to NYC than Buffalo or Rochester and NYC is probably the job market that you will be targeting. I'd reach out to RPI admissions and just be honest with them. You've gotten into a number of other programs and cost is an issue. You want to go to RPI, but need a little help. Worst case they say no and you can decide to go at full price if you really want. Best case they give you some money and make the decision a little easier.
