If one was interested in investment banking, then do you feel as if he would better suited at a great but not top B school or a great or not top LAC. With admissions rates being as they are, schools like the ivies, williams, amherst and wharton are to some degree a complete crap shoot. For a prospective banker, obviously going to harvard is better than going to Stern, but stern is much more realistic just given greats stats such as a high/SAT.
Lets say we're comparing Liberal arts colleges like - Middlebury, Haverford, Bowdoin, Davidson, Wesleyan, Tufts, etc
To business schools such as - NYU Stern, Boston College Carroll, UCLA biz econ, Georgetown Mcdonough, Emory Goizueta, etc
In order to a) break into banking at a top firm, and b) get a full time offer, would you say a lac is better or would a business school be better?
