NYU CAS vs Northeastern vs Carnegie Mellon Tepper (UG)
Hey, I know how much y'all love these kind of threads so I thought I would make another one for y'all to argue rankings on. Title is pretty self explanatory. Just like everyone else, I'm very interested in eventually breaking into IB/PE/HF (maybe consulting too?) so I would love to hear the opinions of people actually on the street (and the other 90% of this site thats still in school). I'm lucky enough to be in a position where my parents are willing to help me pay no matter where I attend so cost is not something I'm factoring in.
THIS IS UNDERGRAD ONLY
NYU CAS - I would be an Econ + Math major and probably would not want to transfer into Stern because I really don't see the point since I have the same access to OCR and clubs despite not being in Stern as well as being allowed to take most Stern classes. NYC has a bunch of opportunities to work during the school year so off cycle internships will be a plus. I have heard from some of y'all that being in Stern is less of an advantage over CAS than people make it out to be but some say otherwise.
Northeastern - Currently the lowest on my list but the CO-OPs are pretty cool considering it gets your foot in the door for all of Boston finance although theres obviously the competition from Harvard/MIT/BC/BU/Tufts. Would be a finance major at DM and would probably pick up another major but who knows. The school is pretty obviously a non-target or semi-target at best but there have been more and more alumni placing onto the street from what I've gathered looking at the webpages for extracurriculars. Would love to hear y'all's take on this one.
Carnegie Mellon Tepper - Would be a finance major or some combination of math and economics. Honestly CMU seems super depressing and super tech/engineering focused so I feel like business would be pushed to the back burner. Not a fan of Pittsburgh but who is honestly. The CMU brand overall is probably the "most prestigious" but NYU has been on a rather meteoric rise as a school (Stern of course carries weight on its own).
Would love to hear y'all's thoughts on this, thanks for the input!
EDIT: Just got into Tepper and from the looks of things its a two horse race between it and NYU.
