Brown vs Dartmouth and Undergrad Education in General
Hey, I'm a high school senior (well for two more days anyway) who recently picked Brown over Dartmouth (after a period of tough decision). I know it's a bit early to be thinking of careers, and in no way am I completely set on ibanking (thinking of professorship in theoretical physics, maybe law, really not sure atm) but was wondering if in ibanking recruitment and job possibilities if Brown is any different than Dartmouth (for better or worse), and just how the school will suit me in the future if I decide on going down the banking route.
On a side note, I know engineering is a popular major for recruiters, but how would Physics or Astronomy compare? And would it matter if I took the AB route in Engineering rather than the SB (would allow me more freedom in the shaping of my education).
And lastly, as far as languages and usefulness - I am nowhere near adept at learning languages, and am nowhere near proficient in spanish after about 4 years of the language in hs, and am thinking of taking Russian or Portuguese in college (I like how they're more unique and especially Russian has the WOW factor (in my mind anyway). Would they be of less use than a more common language such as Chinese or Spanish?
