I'm a HS senior from SoCal. I am considering Georgetown, USC, and NYU.
My goal is to major in business/finance and land a job in Wallstreet in an IB/PE/
I've been asking people for advice and reading blogs for a couple of days now.
This is what I know of each school (both pros + cons):
USC - I've received the trustee scholarship (full scholarship) so that's obviously a major plus. It's a 20 minute drive from my house, I'll be near my family and friends. Obviously great social life. However, USC Marshall is located in the West, far from NYC and is not heavily recruited by firms in NYC. Although everyone does talks of the power of the Trojan family alumni connection
NYU - I received a half scholaship which ends up with me paying about 30k a year. Location is excellent and Stern is more prestigious than USC, especially for finance. Also, from what I've heard, much better in landing Wallstreet jobs.
GTown - Have not yet received my financial package. Overall, it is the most prestigious school overall and is a sort of "brand name." Biggest mystery out of the three schools, I do not know how the translation to Wallstreet is nor the recruitment it receives fromfirms.
Just a side note: Weather, Social Life aren't too important for me, as I feel I will have fun and can fit in fine in all three places. I want to know the more business, job aspect.
Please Help me Decide, any comment/suggestion will help. Thanks!
