Georgetown MSF?

Hello, I am a prospective grad student who lives in NYC, and I've just been accepted into the MSF programs at Georgetown, George Washington, and University of Rochester w a scholarship. I understand from doing some reading on this forum that MSF programs aren't the most desirable thing, but from the options listed, what should I choose?

Hello boss,

My only issue with Georgetown's MSF is that it is basically completely online. I'm worried about how that would affect networking opportunities and on campus recruiting.

That is a good point. From what I know, don't they have events that you are able to come to on campus? 

I think this makes it pretty clear that they have excellent opportunities coming out. 

"Graduates of the Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business reported an average base salary of $128,429 - a record for the program - with 100% employment"

I will be starting the Georgetown MSF this fall and can say that coming from a non-target, the resources and networking opportunities have been amazing. I've been able to attend all of the virtual networking sessions with banks that recruit from the MSB and networked with tons of alumni from Georgetown. I thought alumni would be reluctant to speak with me not being a traditional undergrad recruit, but they have been super open to talking and helping me through the recruiting process for the summer.

Thanks for the answer. Could you tell me more about the bank networking opportunities? I'm looking to be in an internship soon after enrollment, does Georgetown facilitate that?
