Yeah, if Berk could match the 90k, I'd be there in a second. I just don't have much faith in their willingness to match, based on anecdotal evidence (mostly from the Berkeley c/o 2017 accepted students thread which, granted, is not a representative sample).

Yeah they're stupid stingy in most cases. Jerks forced me to leave my beloved California for the sub-standard-avocado-and-In-N-Out-less waste that is the rest of the country. I'll never forgive them.

No..


You would take NYU for West Coast PI over Berkeley? Based on other opinions I've heard on this board most of NYU's T6 advantage over the T10 is negated when you get out of NYC. I would imagine that NYU doesn't really offer many advantages over Berkeley on the West Coast. Thoughts?


I should've elaborated: I think it's fair to say that NYU and Berk are on equal footing when it comes to west coast PI. Therefore, if OP gets more $ at Berk I would probably go there because there are a lot of ancillary benefits of going to school in your target region. I simply disagreed with you that it was an easy decision (i.e. not something to overthink).

*edit


No, it isn't fair to say. Berkeley is better than NYU in California and elsewhere on the west coast. Full stop.

Also, lol @ NYU poster above thinking NYU>Duke or Berkeley outside of NYC. Your inferiority complex is fully justified.

Boalt at a discount is a no-brainer. Otherwise, Michigan. (Sticker at NYU is nuts, unless you come from wealth.)

@dcfilter

uh but those aren't op's options
op explicitly said boalt was at sticker, which is batty (and mercurial)
and also said fin aid process hasn't started at nyu

Berk matching could still happen. If it does, that's the answer. Otherwise, donno ... maybe Mich.

okay, your post sounded like you thought boalt at a discount and nyu at sticker was the decision
obviously if op gets big money, it's a game changer
but at sticker, no

also, considering the amount of info in your lsn profile and post history, did you really think it was a great idea to tell us where you'd be working this summer?
guess i shouldn't be surprised, that's about the level of foresight i'd expect from someone who debt-financed berk at sticker
