COMPARE UCLA MFE vs NCSU MFM

Hi guys,
I got admitted to North Carolina State University (NCSU) MFM and UCLA MFE programs. I am having a hard time deciding which one to choose. NCSU has recently been going up the ranks in the Quantnet rankings, while UCLA has been going down year over year.
Any help from the community would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 
If you are looking for a quantitative experience then definitely NCSU. UCLA mfe is based on a business school. Many graduates reflect that the degree feels like a variation of an MBA. Also, career placement stats haven't been so pretty since 2018.

How was your admission from NCSU worded? I got a notification today that I have been recommended for admission pending a final review, which I am assuming means I was accepted. Wondering if yours looked the same
