The only reason there is a T6 distinction is because Chicago refused to adjust its per-student spending calculated for US News until two years ago to be in line with its piers.
I think NYU is a better deal than most of the T14s because the NYC market is so big.
dude you are a joke kid. you are the same guy who keeps arguing on this board that chicago is better than harvard. i am glad you love chicago but you need to stop your delusional rants. i would give others a pass since they are just joking or flaming, but you actually believe chicago is so above everything else. you need to get your head checked. i am sorry but ive been on this board for a while and i know you didn't choose chicago. that was the only t6 you had a shot at getting into.
Broski. I attended Chicago because I am a fiscal conservative with an economics background, wanted to attend a small school, and have a lot of personal connections to the school. I didn't want to attend the other schools and am not sure if I would have been admitted or not. However, I think I would have been competitive.
Chicago isn't better than the other T6 schools. There are good reasons to attend each. I just don't personally prefer Harvard because of the diluted faculty due to the large class size (unlike Columbia and NYU who bring in practitioners to accommodate huge classes, H brings in less-renowned/pedagogically weak professors), as well as the less-than-stellar placement of the bottom part of the class due to the surplus of Harvard grads. Fix this and Harvard is better than Yale.
This reminds me of a very famous post. I'm sure you've all seen it, but it's always worth another read... --LinkRemoved--
"I have seen a homely Chicago girl, deep into her second year, still spontaneously weeping upon Proustian recollections of the stiff NO Harvard sent her, in brisk three-week turnaround time from the point her doomed application was deemed complete. Happy December, chickiepoo. Then the Yale axe fell, as it does..."
But then again, Mort is a busy globetrotting international telecom executive with billions of dollars and a demanding schedule, so he has probably never had time to bother with such silly posts.
