Like many of you, I am in the process of deciding on which school to attend in the fall, and I am essentially choosing among NYU-Wagner, PennDesign, and Columbia's GSAPP (UIC and Minnesota are also options). Much has been said in regards to NYU and Penn, but does anyone have much insight into Columbiaís Master of Science in Urban Planning program? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Moreover, as mentioned in other threads, my focus is on urban economic development. Do any of these schools have a particular strength in this concentration?
