Have admissions from these program.

Seeking for advice which to take

Columbia MAFM:
Good location and brand name

Georgia Tech QCF:
Possible to do a dual master in CS

Fordham MQF:
Is well know in New York also, under business school so career service should be better?

UCLA MFE

Vote for Gatech if you want more computer science; or Columbia MAFM if you want more math;
Fordham has a relatively lower bar;
UCLA has a bad placement rate.

Columbia MAFM has a big name with good location, if you are a Chinese and the name give you a ticket to some big company.
Georgia Tech QCF focus more on programming skill, a lower tuition and living expense, and a chance to become a GTA and GRA which will cover all you living expenses. You also have the chance a MBA dual or CS dual.

Wow I am exactly in the same situation. I'm leaning more towards GT I guess though I'm a UCLA graduate. Please let me know how you choose.

I would vote for Columbia MAFN for its great location and brand name. I'm surprised that there are so many people voting for Georgia Tech. If you really want to learn CS, Georgia Tech has online master's degree in CS, which is exactly the same as the onsite one, and only costs 6000 USD.

Have multiple friends from Mafn. I kind of echo what Yang Xu mentioned, but not all of them end up in Asia :). Vote Mafn.
