Need help deciding between UCLA w/ ($$) vs. NYU (no scholarship). Some facts:

1. I am originally from Los Angeles and will want to end up on the West Coast in the end. I don't mind working in the east cost for a few years, but definitely want to be on the West Coast later on in life.

2. I'm leaning towards finance, but may change my mind and go into Tech/Marketing (or Marketing for a Tech company). I think NYU is increasing their focus on Tech.

3. If all things were equal (i.e. if i didn't get a scholarship), I probably would have chosen NYU over UCLA. Considering the scholarship, tuition, and living expenses, NYU will likely be $80k more expensive. I have some money saved up, but I will be funding a majority of my expenses with student loans.

Anyone have any advice? If you need some more info, I am happy to answer any questions.

Thanks!!!

IMO, this isn't even close. Anderson will open doors for you in Finance and/or Tech and/or Marketing. Don't needlessly take on $80k more debt for the same degree. (Not to mention doing it OUTSIDE of your desired market.) Enjoy the sunshine and life as a Bruin in SoCal.

Good luck on the decision!

Not even a decision IMO: UCLA wins and I think you already know that. Get out of school with less debt, more freedom, and a degree that is strong and will be very recognized on the West Coast. Sidenote: I may see you at Anderson!
