Columbia versus U Chicago
My son just got off the Columbia waitlist and needs to decide between that and U Chicago (he applied regular decision).
Thinks he wants to study economics and go into PE or investing.
Is a bit wary of a heavy maths related econ course
Is outgoing and social
Is not a intensely academic kid - knows how to work hard and make the grades
Has extended family / friends in New York to offer a support system
He is leaning towards Columbia
Main reservation is the lack of a large campus experience at Columbia & safety around Columbia campus (my concern not his).
He's also still on Princeton waitlist - but not sure that will move.
