Hello I am senior in high school in ohio and am looking at smeal as a prospective college for me.
If I would end of going there I would like to join the PSIA and the nittany lion fund. i was wondering thought the website doesnt state how many people get accepted or rejected there. Does anybody have a clue on exactly how competitive it is to get into??
OSU isnt too good of a college in business but it is good enough to have something called the Fishers Futures program for investment banking and I was wondering how competitve that is?
University of Michigan was my first choice but I am not sure if i will be able to get into Ross, and might end up doing economics. If I dont they also have a club called the MIBC (michigan investment banking club) which is ment for all students at university of michigan.

I am looking at all of these as options but I feel as penn states Nittany lion fund isnt soo competitive if you are a freshman interested but if you are a junior then it becomes really hard.

Penn state's nittany lion fund sends 100% of their seniors to wall street, so does OSU fishers futures program, and so does University of Michigan ( even though it was just made 3 years ago)

and of course I am interested in investment banking and then prolly private equity after being an analyst. I have also read Rosenbaum's book: Investment banking ( recommended by the president of the MIBC), this sparked my interest for this career as well.

Thanks for all responses in advance!!
