Hi,
I have been admitted to the following colleges for MS in Finance and Quantitative finance. I wanted to get a perspective on which to choose amongst the two. Please guide!
1. MS in Quantitative Finance - Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Pros:
Reputed Course(in top 30)
Proximity to the financial hub (NY)
Better than Plain MS finance
Lower stress since it has to be completed in 1.5 years duration
Cons:
Weather
Cant find anyone admitted to RPI as of now (Makes it difficult to find roommates for staying)
Heavily into quants.
2. MS in Finance UC - San Diego
PROS:
Weather
gets done in 10 months so I can enter the workforce earlier
Can find students going to UCSD (therefore possibility of finding roommates is high)
Reputed university
can switch to a corporate finance profile since not heavily into quants. It is actually a good blend of quants and finance
CONS:
It is stressful to complete a course in a span of 10 months
not close to financial hub (difficulty in getting a job)

OTHER COLLEGES I HAVE BEEN ADMITTED TO:
1. UIC-ms in Finance
2.UT Dallas -Ms in Financial Engineering
3. Pace - MS in Financial Risk management
4. SUNY buffalo - MS in Financial Risk management
5. UNCC - Ms in Mathematical Finance
6. Unv of Rochester - Waitlisted

Please help me decide which college should I consider!
Thank You in advance

I'm leaning to any finance program in NY as it is the finance hub. So I vote for Rensselaer (I do not know it well though), Buffalo and Rochester (Simon, it is great). However, you should have reviewed the employment reports and contacted current students in those schools? Also, is it a STEM program?

All of the programs that I have applied to are STEM.
Also, I have gathered necessary information about the employment reports and contacted current students.
Yet the confusion still remains. Do San Francisco or areas in California have good employment opportunities for finance graduates ?
