You should still do Cornell, but if you VOMIT at the thought of Ithaca, then Penn could be alright. That doesn't really help you maintain your social status though.

Do you know if Penn need-based aid is separate from merit aid?

Yes.


Okay, so they offered me 30,000 in need based, then 90,000, so it should be 120,000.

I would try to negotiate $$ from Columbia. Doesn't seem unrealistic.

If not, Cornell.

I got it upgraded to 60K, does that make it worth it?

Are you serious? You should be smart enough to answer that yourself (hint: it's not "yes")

Firstly, congrats on an excellent cycle.
As a fellow NYC resident. I would choose Columbia. Live at home and commute to school. If you go Cornell, you need to pay for room and board, food, and other sorts of expenses. Sure, you'll be in a bit more debt. But, Columbia is close to home and the best option.

Where did OP say anything about being able to live with their parents if they went with Columbia or NYU? All they said was that parents would cover COL, seemingly at any school.

Also, as a former NYC resident who took $$$$ at Cornell over $$ at CCN, I have no regrets.
