I've got a potentially big decision to make...
Blah Blah Blah I'm at Umich, first year here, now is the time for me to apply to Ross or fuhgetaboutit... Right now I'm heavily leaning towards majoring in CS
What I am interested in:
The problem: obviously CS would be better to get a job in trading/programming, but what about consulting as a computer scientist and not from Ross? I'm just wondering if it would be significantly harder to get a job at firms like MBB using the engineering school's OCR and not Ross... I've heard that consulting firms like engineers/people with quantitative skills, but I've also heard that they're pretty damn focused on Ross too...
What do you think I should do? Some people have mentioned a double major (CS + finance) before, but honestly, if I were to do another major, I'd probably pick up mathematics for education's sake. So it seems as if I have to pick between A)Majoring in two fields that I think would be better for my education overall while having a big/slight/no disadvantage (you pick) compared to Ross kids for consulting... or B) try to get into Ross and major in CS + BBA w/ finance for recruitment's sake. I don't really like the idea of majoring in finance for recruitment's sake when I can further my mathematics education, but I am very very interested in consulting.
Halp! And thanks in advance.
