So I was admitted as a transfer student to the University of Michigan and the University of Virginia, and I'm incredibly torn as to which one to go to. I realize that there are a lot of factors to consider in this process, but I've identified and elaborated on some of the highlights below.
Cost is virtually identical
I would be a math major at both places (math with a concentration in finance)
I live in Chicago right now, and I'd want to work in either Chicago or NYC after graduation
I want to get involved in trading/HF after graduation
Time to graduate would be identical
I don't really have close friends at either university, and I'd be starting over socially at both places
At Virginia I would be a BA, at Michigan a BS
Where should I go and why?
