Alright guys, I'm having some trouble deciding between the two since they appear to be the best options I have. For Cornell I got into AEM, which is good, I know their career ops are solid. Cal's weather/atmosphere is clearly superior, however I am concerned because students have to reapply to Haas as a sophomore and they only accept about 40% of Berkeley Undergrads. I do not want to be stuck in their L&S (General College) since I am only interested in Finance.
I also got into Stern, UCLA, and UMich (Not Preferred, missed the deadline), but from previous threads it seems that Cornell and Cal are the superior of the 5. I'm going to re-visit both, but ultimately I don't think that student life or "fit" is going to be a problem at either, despite the fact that they are very different schools.
Once again, I am specifically interested in Finance only, and am aggressively aiming to position myself in the best possible manner for getting good internships/FT offers in IB, S&T, or possibly even PE right out of UG.
Cost is not a factor, as I am out of state for both schools.
