Hi all,

I am currently agonising over this decision between MIT (with 30% scholarship) and Princeton for the MFin. For context I am from London and (at this point) would be more interested in quant research roles after graduation, though am open to changing my mind. I am set on returning to the UK and have no intention of working in the US (I have a Fulbright grant and so will not be legally permitted to work in the US).

Would be very keen to get your perspective, especially as I have almost zero finance experience so am worried about doing well at Princeton (I think I was admitted based on my maths background).
