I got admitted by these programs and wanted to make a choice. Every school has its pros and cons and they seem at a same tier. Which program is worth going if I want relatively rigorous courses and decent employment rate (not necessarily the big names or buyside, mid-size funds or small-size funds just for accumulating experiences)

What is the budget? Regardless of tuition, living cost, or scholarship, then Fordham. Otherwise I would go with the least costly option.

Hey open the door!!! Can I ask which school you chose . I'm very much in the same dilemma.
Sorry for the late reply. I am still hesitating because Fordham's ex-director Blackburn has left the program. I am still researching the placement. What is your final decision?

I found Rutgers offers cross-registration with Princeton as well as Data Science certificate. I have posted a thread on QN about the pointviews toward this cross-registration and look forward to any useful replies. Since these two program, honestly, are not top tier, I may weigh more on the costs of the program.

The cross registration is quite tempting to be honest. Find out more because if they do it’ll be a great way to get networking and experience with the students at a top school.
