    Question Finance PhD: UChicago Booth or LBS?

    It seems that the placement for LBS is good and stable, but the faculty at Booth is generally much stronger. How to choose between these two programs? Any comments will be much appreciated!

    I'm in accounting, so my perception might not be perfect for finance, but I would choose Booth and it's not close. A big part of that perception is because Chicago controls JAR, which is a top 3 journal in accounting. I believe Oxford controls RFS. If there is some really useful connection with LBS there it might help sway things, but I doubt it. Chicago has the current editor of JF and people on boards at every good journal.

    I'm also American, so there could be some bias there. I think most people would say Chicago.
