    Yes, a top x offer is worth like 6 top x interviews. Not sure whether it is a good metaphor here.

    Btw, between Rochester and UBC I would probably choose UBC, if I don't have any location preference. Personally I think the non-US school gives you some arbitrage when you are comparing a US vs. a non-US one at a similar level.

    Hi Balapan, OP here. I have replied your previous post but somehow my replies are not shown. From recent placements, UBC dominates Rochester and I am leaning towards UBC. But I am curious why many people think Rochester is the significantly better choice.
