Columbia IEOR MFE vs NYU Tandon MSFE

So I have 2 options:
1. Columbia MFE
2. NYU MSFE with 8k scholarship per year
From my discussion with students, it seems getting a campus job in NYU is easier, there by earning your living cost. Whereas in Columbia it is rare to find a campus job.

Is it worth spending the extra $50k for the Columbia tag? Or in other words, does the job market value Columbia that much more?
