Paying sticker for NYU over $$ at a lower T13 is rank idiocy.
It is simply not the case that NYU, Duke, and Michigan are true peers, or that all non HYS T-14 schools are the same. The employment prospects are much better
coming out of NYU, and that's undisputed.
No, that's actually disputable depending on your definition of "much better." NYU's main advantage is a boost for P.I. work and a small advantage in V10 placement in the NYC market. So for someone who doesn't want to do P.I. and doesn't care about NYC V10s, they are seeing a very marginal advantage by attending NYU. Columbia is definitely stronger, but I'm very skeptical that CA employers are going to view NYU or Columbia as substantially better than Boalt.
P.S. - I have by far the most badass of all avatars.
I dunno man, I'd put money on Rick over Vincent any day of the week. Jules might be able to take him, but largely because his sideburns would be intimidating.
NYU's employment score on LST is significantly
6% higher than Duke, 9% higher than Michigan. You can argue about what constitutes "significant," but in my mind, that advantage is clearly not worth nearly $100k.
I don't know where this "conventional wisdom" that NYU is only better for V10s came from, but it's wrong. Also, we're not comparing NYU to Boalt for CA, just to Michigan and weirdly to Duke even though the guy didn't ask.
It's not wrong. NYU's only advantage is in NYC, which is coincidentally where most V10s are located. Outside of NYC, nobody thinks NYU is any better or worse than Michigan, Duke, Boalt, etc. Everything south of HYS is a peer school, and a few % points advantage in employment aren't worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. It's just not.
Addressing more important things, no way that Rick could take either one! Rick keeps getting lucky that he isn't killed by zombies (which, by the way, seem increasingly less scary and slower moving now that everyone is consistently armed). Also, he sees his dead wife everywhere and is really squeamish about killing non-zombies. Carl might take them, but not Rick.
Did you see the way Rick took out those guys in the bar in season 2? Badass. Not to mention, Jules and Vincent never had to face the walking dead - that shit changes you.
