Cornell MPS vs Stern MSA

Fortunate enough to be accepted into both programs but now comes the dilemma of choosing... I've already read on another feed of someone saying the MPS programs are cash grabs. The program I'm going to for Cornell is MPS in Management. In terms of cost Cornell would be cheaper and its an Ivy ( does that matter as much )? I'm still new to all this so some advice would be great. Went to NYU for undergrad so I'm aware of the great opportunities, is it worth it to go back? I'm leaning towards Cornell.

Hey I applied in early March for the third round and I heard back this month. like May 20 ish. They're pretty slow so if you feel the wait's too long you can email admissions, that's what I did. They usually tell you about any scholarships in your admission letter, and other types of funding come later I think. Good luck!
