Hey guys, I want to talk about engineering at HYP and other ivies for IB, consulting, finance in general, and everything else(grad school). I know Princeton ORFE is highly regarded, but it seems like it would be hard to take other humanities classes and is extremely hard, even compared to most engineering majors. So how would someone majoring in civil and environmental engineering at Princeton fare? Would there questioning to why you didn't go for ORFE? Also, even though Yale isn't usually considered great for engineering I am pretty sure they would be fine when it comes to recruiting just because it is Yale. However, Yale offers several different degrees; there is an accreditedwhich requires the most related classes, something around 20 I believe, then a regular , something like 15, a little more freedom, and an AB, like 9 related classes with only 2 required prereqs, a TON of freedom, it even says so on the Yale website. Would someone with an AB be questioned and looked down upon as going the "easy way out", or would it help so you could take some econ classes and other things and put on your resume substantial classes in econ and put some down or something. Lastly, at Yale and Princeton for sure, not sure about Harvard, the SEAS majors have like an 18-20% acceptance rate, there is factual evidence but I am to lazy to cite where I got my information. Just so you know Civil and Environment Engineering are what I am looking at, because that is what I am interested in.
