American University vs. George Washington University

Which one is better in terms of rep on wall street. I know Gary Cohn (COO of Goldman) and a few JP Morgan, Goldman & Barcap IB guys went to AU. But I don't know about GWU.

So whats the consensus ? Which is better for IB (I know they are both non- targets)

I've seen more GWU kids than AU kids personally...

I think GWU is better. I don't know much about the recruiting at either school though.

You would think that gwu has a better alumni network ? Correct me if I'm wrong

GWU would be better even though IB recruiting in both schools is not prominent.

Look at on campus recruiting for both

GWU > AU
But still IB recruiting in both schools is almost non-existing.

Don't you dare pick your college based purely on the quality of IB recruiting, both are nontargets so equal.

You should check out another school in DC if you're interested in finance

AU -> 68% women and 32% men (at least when I visited back in 2006)
