By the way, for those who missed it, I was rejected off the UCLA waitlist.
So I dont know I can get in the same boat as you.
About the choice between UPenn and NYU, I think it is very difficult to choose one from them.
My research interest is in Macro/Macroeconometrics/Monetary Economics(Theory of Banking),
and these two school is very strong in these field.
The faculty members I am interested in are:
NYU: Gertler, Sargent, Violante(Macro), Cogley(Macroeconometris), Gale(Theory of Banking)
UPenn: Krueger, Greenwood, Cole(Macro), Schorfheide, Fernandez-Villaverde(Macroeconometris), Allen(Theory of Banking)
In terms of Faculty members, I prefer UPenn to NYU (I heard from a current student in UPenn that Kruger and Schofheide is very nice guy and I am very interested in their research.),
but UPenn has higher attrition rate than NYU.
Maybe I need to start "help my decision" thread if I get two offer
