Hi everyone,

I recently got off from WL of Boston University and only have a week to make the decision. Both programs are under business school and have a similar tuition fee.

The placement stats seems to be better for MSMF (though not specify how many months after graduation) and Boston is closer to New York, but I heard that the courses at BU are very theoretical and hard to pursue a satisfied GPA. The courses sound solid with more concentration on math.

UCLA offers more finance courses and has only a few programming experiences. There's no python courses but mainly uses R. One thing I like about UCLA is its applied finance project which may give us more industrial experiences before we go to full-time jobs.

I hope to find a full-time job in the US after graduation. Any idea would be helpful! Thank you.
