I have been accepted to NYU, paid my deposit and was dead set on going there until UNC came in today with a half tuition scholarship. Approximate to about $60,000 2 year total. With cost of living, tuition difference it'll probably be a total of $100,000 difference.

I went to University of Georgia for my undergrad and am currently and Large Commercial Insurance Underwriter In Southern California for a Fortune 100 company. My plan after graduation is to work for a top Investment Banking company and if not, a top Consulting Firm.

The stats show that the starting salaries for both industries are comparable but UNC recruiting wise looks like it leans more towards consumer products and corporate finance. I am really open to working anywhere after graduation and it looks like 78% of students at NYU end up in the northeast (Which might limit its value elsewhere) and 40% of UNC students in the South.

I have sent NYU an email asking if they would reconsider a merit based scholarship but when I received one from Cornell a month ago and asked them the same thing, they wouldn’t budge.

Does anybody have any suggestions on whether I should take the scholarship or stay with NYU for my career goals?

Thanks all

For IB, NYU is the obvious choice. NYU has advantage in terms of location as well. Good luck with your choice.
