RSM vs ESE vs a better school (LSE, Oxford, HEC etc.)
Short summary: dropped out of uni due to personal problems, started again at Erasmus School of Economics, have a 4.0/4.0 GPA atm with no prior internship experience (I did teach at my uni + various extracurriculars).
I've been accepted at both Erasmus School of Economics and Rotterdam School of Management, respectively for Financial Economics and Finance & Investments. Which one should I choose and if I want to work in Asset Management/IB at a bank in London/Frankfurt (with my profile)? I prefer Erasmus School of Economics because RSM students usually aren't the brightest in my very honest opinion, but then again RSM has a (much) better name than ESE.
Also, is taking a gap year to study for the GMATs and to do an internship worth it? In other words: is taking an entire year off to get admitted into LSE/HEC/Oxford worth the effort? Or would you rather do Finance at Erasmus University and do two full-time internships during your master's degree? Is it even possible to pursue a career in AM/IB this late during my studies?
I know that these questions are quite ambiguous but I'm feeling kind of lost right now, so any advice is welcome.
