It's been a while since these have been looked at, but I think that it's appropriate to revisit the issue.
Right now, we have two custom close reasons that are very similar to one another in scope:
Questions that cannot be generalized to apply to others in similar situations are off-topic. For assistance in writing questions that can apply to multiple people facing similar situations, see: What kinds of questions are too localized?
This question appears to be off-topic because it seems to seek specific advice for a very specific situation, and it's likely that only someone with a good understanding of your situation will be able to provide an objectively correct answer.
I can't see any situation in which one of these could apply, but the other couldn't.
[The other close reason is the often overused "Undergraduate" reason.]
Personally, I find myself using a variant on the "shopping question" tag a lot more frequently. I would recommend replacing one of the tags above with something such as:
We cannot offer recommendations or rankings of specific programs, courses, universities, or other similar requests, as these are primarily opinion-based.
