That's it. That's literally it. Don't overcomplicate things. If you're going to get worked up between the marginal differences between schools in the same tier, please check your mental health. There is so much more that matters when it comes to personal college selection (social life, girls, campus, overall vibe). Besides, because the differences in IB opportunities are so small, it will come down to YOU and NOT the college when it comes to recruiting. Your interviewing and social skills will matter WAY more than if you went to NYU Stern vs Duke or whatever. I don't understand the over-complicated rankings with the 10 tiers bullshit. They're pretentious.
