So you interviewed at these?

Stick with geography as your chief criterion, plus your gut feel about these programs, the people, the training. Don't worry which one other people think is best.

Thanks a lot for your advice .

Yes I interviewed at these places plus few more but after narrowing down I have come to these 4. Still very hard for me to make a decision !

I agree with sticking with geography. When I first started this process, I told myself I was going to pick the strongest program possible. But now as I think about work-life balance, stress, finances, moving, etc... location is starting to become really important to me. And I want to be close to family. I can live away from home and be fine, but whenever I do visit home all I can think is "damn, I wish I could do this more often".

Well, what criteria are you using to determine which program is better? Different factors matter more to different people (geography included).
