I am very new to the area of finance as I am coming from an electrical engineering background at Oxford. In the hypothetical realm that I get accepted from all my applications, would people give advice at which school I should choose to attend?

Id take the brand name over the QuantNet rankings, but that's just me.
Ultimately, its highly dependent on your future career aspirations and weighing them accordingly.
Cheers and congrats on the acceptances

Both great programs. MIT - early career program, heavy finance / corporate accounting, assumes you have strong math. CMU - more intense quant math / programming training, better reputation on the street. MIT has better brand recognition globally.
