Yes Stern is definitely worth it, So is Columbia. You could try to live in either Hoboken, Jersey City or some other boroughs - Brooklyn, Queens to save on rent. And ofcourse if living costs are an issue you could consider Wharton, Tuck or other schools which are located in LCOL cities.

>Wharton >LCOL Relatively, yes. Absolutely, not really

I am looking for some advice or opinions to apply for consulting jobs right now. I currently work at a mid-sized/regional firm, but plan move to a different city later this year. I have ~4 yr xp working on system implementations, IT policies/controls, and BPO, but my undergrad GPA wasn't the best (I did become a CPA and CISA though). Should I try to apply to big 3/big 4? Stay mid-sized? Get an MBA or Masters? Move and pray? Thanks in advanced for any comments!
