lex and I talked about it a bunch in this thread, I think. I decided on Chase and I think she was talking about Citibank.
Pros for Chase for me were:
Getting a Chase rewards credit card with $50 reward for signing up and being able to link that easily to a free Chase checking acct
Chase ATMs all over campus and at every Duane Reade
I'm sure Lex can tell you more, but I think two of the big pros for her for Citibank were no fee ATM withdrawals at any ATM and lots of Citibank ATMs in Manhattan. I can't remember what her other ones were....
FWIW I'm also maintaining my existing B of A acct because i already have a credit card/checking/savings with them.
Chase also gives you discounts on MTA cards.
