Hi guys, I am a fresh grad major in applied math. I received offers from Cornell, NYU Courant, and UChicago in the past month and did not know how to make a decision. I probably will choose between Cornell and NYU. Could anyone give me some advice in how to choose between these two?

My goal is to enter a buy-side firm after graduating but I'm also open to bb banks since the quit opportunities are also good. My understanding between these two programs is that Cornell has a better career service and overall prestige while NYU has a more rigorous curriculum. Any insights and suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
