Hey everyone, I have received an admit from both these Universities and since they are so closely ranked on the Quantnet Ranking list it is a bit confusing to decide.
Just placement stat-wise, NYU Tandon doesn't look highly promising with the 3month post-graduation employment @86%, even being situated in NY, Brooklyn. I am given a scholarship at NYU which makes my tuition fee at NYU Tandon equivalent to GATech.

Any insights or pros-cons would be welcomed and appreciated. Thanks in advance :))
If you are from a computer science background, gatech is preferable as you can get access to one of the best CS depts in US. If you are from a finance background looking for more risk related roles NYU tandon would be better. Off late many gatech students are getting placed in core quant roles. But Nyu is not bad either.
