I´m in at Cornell with a 75k grant.
I´m waitlisted at UMich, and have apps pending at Chicago, Columbia, and Penn.
Assuming I got in to any of those four places, with little or no grant money, does it make sense to pass up 75k... am not sure what the difference in job prospects bewteen Cornell and these four schools is.
I will probably wind up litigating in New York, but would like some potential flexibility. I know that Cornell does fairly well on the Ciolli TQ´s on the West Coast, but, just by relying on such an indicator it´s obvious that I don´t know as much as I should.
Any thoughts would be most welcome, as I may have to make some very quick decisions in the near future... thanks!
