Berkeley Haas vs NYU Stern (Undergrad)
I've been admitted to both schools and am having a tough time choosing (cost isn't an issue). Looking to target finance, specifically BB/EB Investment Banking. I'm indifferent to starting a career on the East vs West coast, though NYC seems more exciting to me. Eventually want to end up on West Coast later in career though, as family is west.
I know Stern and Haas are powerhouses for their respective regions, but simply put, which school would offer more opportunities to enter high finance? Currently learning toward Stern because of NYC, intern opps, and I've been told it holds more prestige in the finance world (is this true?). I know thoughts on Berkeley and NYU cultures are highly polarized, but I can't visit the schools to see where I envision myself bc of quarantine. Open to all perspectives!
Additional Note: Can anyone speak to the buy-side recruiting at either school? I read that Stern is recruited at the undergrad level from KKR, Point72, etc. Not too sure about Haas. Assume Stern has the edge bc of location, but am definitely not certain.
