Cornell. Absolutely Cornell if you want NYC. I don't think there's a question here.

Doesn't seem like Texas or WUSTL really feed to the NYC market, based on their employment stats. if you want NYC, can't go wrong with an Ivy League Top-14 school that typically feeds directly into that market, although the price tag is REALLY hefty there.

dvd wrote:I'd be paying sticker at Cornell, or $21K per year at Texas, or $7K per year at WUSTL. Ultimately I would love to work in NYC, so Cornell seems like a pretty good shot, but I think that might be possible from Texas as well. I know my chances would be shot at WUSTL, but I also realize that not acquiring a lot of debt could be a good thing.

Ideas?


I had these options, more or less. And some others. I'm at Cornell. I don't regret the decision.

Are you more worried about keeping doors and opportunities open or more worried about avoiding debt? I think Cornell is your safest bet here, even with the price tag.
