COMPARE Columbia MFE vs NYU Tandon MFE

I decided on Columbia. The tuition cost is about on par (70k for NYU and 72k for Columbia). I received a partial scholarship from NYU which made a difference in tuition cost. However, Columbia's program is a semester shorter than NYU, so that extra couple months of working will cover the money I would have saved at NYU. Best of luck!

If you have money go for Columbia no doubts in that, if you have a budget issue tandon isnt a bad shout. I am going to tandon too. It has been risking in rankings and is on right track under Peter Carr.

Yeah I agree. Tandon is such a risk.

I think the ROI if one goes to CU is much greater. There are fewer pure quant roles coming out of Tandon. The programs are inherently different and I think they shouldn't be compared. I mean, I get what you are saying, that you would take Columbia anyday. Am emphasizing on that and believe that the environment and the access to alumni that CU offers is unparalleled. So no, it's not about the money here. I think it's best if we choose the right school in terms of fit and in terms of curriculum. Please tell us how you chose Tandon? And congratulations on getting into Columbia and Tandon! Must have been a tough choice to choose between the two.

I didnt get/ even apply to columbia as at that tome I thought I dont belong to the league. I do accept columbia is a much better school than NYU but nyu is the best I had. Lets not compare these two but as I said Tandon isnt a bad shout much better than most non ivy mfe courses.
