  • Total voters

I would like to hear from people who choose Georgia Tech QCF as I am not much aware of advantages of QCF over UCB MFE
 
Hi All,
I have a decision to make between UCB mFE and Gatech QCF. I know polls are very clear but still would like someone with experience or more info to elaborate.
For GaTech QCF, below are the stats
Avg Base compensation: ~100K, Avg Total: ~134K
Cities: ~20% find jobs in NYC, 20% in Chicago, 25% in Charlotte
Total cost : ~85K

Above employment statistics look good to me and with low tuition I am inclined towards Gatech.
Am I missing something important to consider

Don’t consider just the employment statistics, but also look at where the actual employment is happening and see if your interest aligns with the those employment opportunities.

I don’t think cost is as much a factor in choosing between these top programs. Also, look at the curriculum and maybe ask specific questions to the “experts”.
