A undergrad tier list you cant argue with. (I looked at per capita data)

(1) Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, MIT, Wharton

(2) Columbia, Penn, Dartmouth, UChicago

(3) Cornell, Brown, Georgetown, Notre Dame, Williams, Duke

(4) Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Emory, UVA, Berkeley, NYU, Michigan, Wash&lee, Middlebury, CMU, Bowdoin, Boston College, Amherst

(5) Pomona, Swarthmore,  Colgate, Wellesley, SMU

Not a fan of using per capita data, it will grossly inflate ivy league and liberal arts placements as the % of students going for these roles is astronomically higher vs state schools w/ 50k students. For example, Indiana will place 4-5x the pure number of students over emory, W&L, middlebury, CMU, Bowdoin, Amherst, williams, pomona, swarthmore, colgate etc. 

I did not attend IU - so please don't MS, it's an illustrative example. 

IU absolutely does not place 4-5x people than Emory or Middlebury or CMU dude. It places like 1.5x of Emory and is like 8-9x bigger 

lmao bro the entire kelley school goes for IB (and Kelley has 2500 kids per grade)... harvard alone has 1750 people per grade. Harvard sends more kids to IB than kelley and probably has 1/20th of the students going for IB 

Its hard to believe that IU is being compared to those schools and I don't even go to one of them

Bruh I'm a senior at Emory and can promise you that we send way more than 20 to IB lol. There's like 7 to Truist and 4-5 each to JPM, MS, Citi alone. Other that that we're a target for every EB(Centerview, Lazard, PWP, Rothschild, Greenhill, Evercore, Gugg, Houlihan Lokey regular and HLRX), virtually every MM, and we're a little weaker for BB but this year there's been OCR from Citi, BOA, Barclays, and JPM. This is despite us being a small school and we send a solid amount to every BB even if they don't do OCR. There's like 120 finance majors vs kelley which has 1100 finance majors. There's probably 50-60 going into IB every year. 

I did not go to IU. I went to another state school and am leaving banking for a MF. You can either (i) be an annoying, overconfident little sht prospect / intern that has no idea what they're talking about because you've never been in the real world (sorry, coddled internship doesn't count) or (ii) actually listen to what people who work in the industry have been noticing over the past few years as IB talent has degraded. I'm very involved in campus recruiting. these are all observations i've made firsthand over the past year

If you think Bowdoin and BC are placing as well as UVA/Umich/Northwestern, you're delusional
