I have recently been accepted to both USC and UC Santa Barbara's Masters of Arts in Economics.
I currently live in Orange County. I have not really received any financial aid from both schools, but I do not really mind paying for the USC education. I like that UCSB is in a great area and has a friendly environment.
Which school's MA program is more highly ranked?
Which program will be better for the job market (locally and nationally)?
Which school will be more enjoyable and educational?</p>
<p>I appreciate all of the advice and help you can give me. </p>
