misterfriedchicken2022, what's your opinion? Comment below:

You'd be surprised how many Partners/Portfolio Managers/MDs there are on the street who went to none of the schools above (ie didn't even make it onto your "ranking").

Georgetown, Notre Dame, NYU, and UVA all have more representation on the street than some of the A tier schools.

LMFAO, he actually goes to Michigan, check out his post history. All of those B tier schools just as good or better than Michigan, Caltech, and Brown.

I'd put Harvard in Tier B. A lot of people get Harvard undergrad mixed up with HBS, which is god-tier.

Imo Michigan is legit only worth it for either absurdly rich people or Michigan residents

You made 2 threads for this bro. Anyway I think another comment on one of the other threads is pretty accurate. Im just copy pasting it. 

Most recently, I'd say:

1: Wharton, Harvard, Yale, Princeton

2: Stanford, MIT, Penn (non-Wharton), Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, Brown, NYU Stern

3: Cornell, Georgetown, Williams, Amherst, NYU (Non-stern), Michigan (Ross)

4: Vanderbilt, Michigan (non-Ross), Northwestern, WashU, Berkeley, Emory, Hopkins, UVA, UNC

the other one was pretty elaborate and probably better than this 

I would put

S tier: HYPSM + Wharton

A+- Columbia, Penn, Duke, Dartmouth, UChicago

A tier: Georgetown, Brown, Cornell, NYU Stern

B+ tier: Michigan, Berkeley, Williams, Amherst, Notre Dame, UVA

B tier- Northwestern(debatable between B+/B), Vanderbilt, Emory, Johns Hopkins, WashU, Middlebury, Rice

C+ Tier- UT Austin(debatable between B/C+), UNC(debatable between B/C+), Boston College, Washington and Lee, Hamilton, CMU

C Tier- Wake Forest, IU Kelley, Villanova, William and Mary, Tufts, SMU

Non blanditiis est velit quia dolorum dolorem. Adipisci reiciendis neque excepturi voluptas. Quaerat sed itaque hic. Cupiditate nemo fugit asperiores qui. Temporibus rerum quam dolores aut ipsam quia aut.

Dolores illum impedit architecto. Natus quos dicta pariatur nisi. Ea dolorem voluptate dolore. Dolor vel voluptatibus nisi explicabo aut impedit. Sunt consequuntur amet quis mollitia culpa. Ea eum libero similique qui aut porro.

Consequatur dolor et hic vel minima animi doloribus. Rerum qui architecto et aut voluptatem perferendis dolore. Omnis totam quos ratione pariatur omnis.
