Emory or UVA?

Accepted as junior transfer to Emory GBS and UVA Commerce. Looking to break into consulting (MBB/Big 4/Boutiques) for Fall 2023 SA and trying to figure non-IB finance roles as a backup. Office preference doesn't matter, just need to secure a SA. What's the best option?

I went to Emory and know people from UVA. IMO it's a toss up - should be based upon where you fit the best and financial considerations. They're both very different student experiences and will give you chances at both MBB/Big4/Banking.

Both alumni networks are going to be helpful to get you a foot in the door if you put in the work. Neither will hold you back.

What are some solid non-IB finance positions?  Really want to lock in a second position that has good compensation and exit opportunities.

Uva commerce better than Emory bus school, Emory general allegedly better but I don't buy that for a second. Uva is so much more fun than Emory. Go to UVA in an instant. You bet you're bottom dollar

I'm biased in this, but I will tell you that I didn't even apply to Emory cuz that place simply wasn't going to make me enjoy my 4 years. It's pretty clear that you're driven and that both schools will give you great opportunities. Go to the one that will make you have the most fun- it's college and you only have 2 years left. Uva is the place.
