Hello All, I want to keep this relatively short so I'll start by saying that I am currently deciding between UChicago & UMichigan (fully funded PhD), although I just visited UIUC (am still processing the visit but my gut is not as blown away as I was by the first two).

Hey everyone! I am wondering which one should I choose. Columbia University is a big name and it locates in NYC.

( Since I know it is a program that focuses on sending students into the industry) Thank you!
