Just go where you think you'll be happiest.
I disagree with this bit of advice. It's like telling someone that they should just go where the job prospects are the best regardless of happiness. It doesn't take into account individual circumstances. For example, perhaps OP does not greatly value his or her own happiness. Or maybe he or she would be just slightly happier at one school over another. In that case, it doesn't make sense to just go with the place where he or she will be happiest because it makes very little difference.
What I think the OP should do is consider how happy he or she will be at both places, then weigh whatever difference there might be against other factors such as job placement, etc. He or she needs to decide for his or herself how important happiness, job prospects, various other factors are in the decision.
A lot of people are acting like Georgetown is a death sentence compared to NYU. Personally, I consider quality of life to be by far the most important consideration in picking a school. The difference between a 100K and a 160K job is not worth being miserable at your school, at least for me. NYU has better job prospects than Georgetown, but you'll be fine going to either school. If the prestige is really going to affect how satisfied you are with your experience, then go to NYU. Otherwise, go where you think you will live a better life.
