The reason of doing this comparison (hopefully) is to help MFE candidates like me to be a bit more informative about their MFE program decisions.

These three schools are chosen simply because their information is relatively more public and easier to compare. Definitely, the metrics I have chosen could be biased, (or even inconsistent, due to availability of information) and I appreicate others' discussion/suggestions on the factors are important when considering an MFE program. Note that information is based the latest data as of 2016.1.13.

Attached is the table.
Not sure if QuantNet supports table in a post :(

%Placement of MIT and CMU could be under-estimated.
Average working experience for MIT includes internship experience.

Where did you get the % placement data? looks wrong. Or at least it is not close to what is reported on CMU website.
