Second deposits is due pretty soon. But I can't seem to make up my mind.

I liked both schools equally. Both cities were good.

Will the choice of school have any effect on these several points?
1) specialization
-I think traditionally penn sent more kids to specialization. Whether it was b/c of the program itself or the collection of students, I don't know.
-But now that the board has changed to P/F, would it be better to go to Case where the atmosphere is less cut-throat (less people wanting to specialize)

2) academics
-If you plan to teach later on, is it better to go to a school that has better reputation?

I am basically asking if Upenn's name is worth 40k (difference btw two schools OVER 4 YEARS).

Thanks for your input.
