Berkeley x Northwestern with fellowship


BABC

I need help to decide what to do...
i was admitted by NU with a 14,500 fellowship and by Berkeley recently (unfortunatelly i did not asked for financial aid at Berkeley, so did not received)...i dont know if I can ask at this time for fin. aid at Berkeley...does anybody know?
i want to study subjects related to business (contracts, corporate, arbitration, law and economics)...
i would prefer to live at california (because of the wheter), but i know that chicago may offer more job opportunities..
both schools are great and i am not certain of what to decide

does anybody has an opinion on which decision would be better?

thanks a lot

Friend, you can enjoy lot of ocean breeze and sunny weather once you save those $14+K and stay there like a king when go to west for job fair in LA after graduating from NWU. I mean you should not have any doubts joining NU if you're intending to pursue corporate law when compares to Berkeley. you can enjoy lot of weather afterwards when you come out of northwestern and have a job in your hand. Even Chicago blows some lake wind - no wonder city is called 'windy city'. I know you'll love chicago life. Now the most important things is do what your heart says, because see this $14+K won't matter much once you'll start earning it but it always stays in once heart where one wanted to go and don't tell me you don't know what your heart say,because if you remove the money you know it very well where you wanna go. So listen to your heart and you'll be happy because thats what we live for everything else follows you if you know how to manage things.goodluck!

I got into NU but not Berkeley. in all truth, without scholarship I'd rather go to Berkeley, but nowaday 14+K is a good reason for which preferring NU. hope to see you in Chicago next fall

I was in the same situation just a few weeks ago....the only difference is that I did not received any scholarship at all...but, related to business...NU is far more better than Berkeley...the bad thing is the weather but Chicago is a great city...search the board for my threads...1)NEED HELP and 2)Berkeley vs Northwestern (this last one, the last post(opinion) is the best).
Hope it helps!!

Both great schools, 14k is a good money. I also had to choose between the two (although I had no scholarship offer from NU) and decided to attend Berkeley, without a second thought (far better reputation in my home country, and other professional and personal reasons). In fact, Berkeley was my 2nd choice (I was rejected in Stanford, the 1st) and Northwestern, the 7th. But that's so personal....

I am also a corporate law attorney. Berkeley's business school is also very good (Haas). I mean, in my opinion, once your're in a top school (and both are), your performance will depend much more on your own efforts than on the school.

Where do you want to live? What fits your interests better? Think tight, answer to that questions, make the call and no regret!

Good luck!
