Congrats on your acceptances... It is a good feeling to be choosing which school you want to go to (instead of the other way around).

As to your question - you may want to consider more info before deciding which school to attend. On a long enough timeline - cost is a very minor issue. Education atmosphere, types of students, instructors, city, curriculum should all be included in your decision.

Take your time and investigate each school individually. People on this forum will no doubt have opinions - but it is your sentiments that truly matter.

Utilize the search function to seek out current students of each program - that is always a good place to start.

Let us know if you need any help.
