Kelley or Fisher?

Unfortunately I did get into Gies for Finance, although I did get into BC. At first I was going to pick BC, but the 80k price isn't justifiable. I'm not sure if I should go to IU or OSU. Although I'm leaning towards Fisher, due to the fact Fisher has a smaller student body. I have also heard that Kelley is a pressure cooker with nepo babies on this forum. I just need help to pick a school, I have visited both and don't really care. Also I have no preference in landing a BB or MM gig, along with any equity research job. BC is out of the question.

My parents aren't letting me go, so it's out of the question.

Currently at Fisher. If you get into Fisher's IB program, you'll be set up well. Almost everyone placed in the last two classes, most going to MM with a few BB/EB offers. Kelly's IBW is probably better, but you'll certainly have opportunities at Fisher if you put in the work.

Dude, the fact that you're in HS on this forum means you'll be fine. Go to whichever you like better. I didn't even know what investment banking was until I was a senior in college. Have some fun

I've seen way more Kelley alums in Chicago finance than Fisher alums. I think Kelley is the better choice if you want to maximize your chances of getting a role you want.

But what's probably more important is picking the overall school you want to be at. If you like OSU a lot more than IU, then go to Fisher and kill it there. You'll be fine at either place as long as you put the effort in.
