Posting here for someone else (I'm already in college). Shes considering these "semi-targets/targets," and wants a shot at IBD recruiting. Anyone know how they placed this year? Have went through past topics, but wanted to get some more up to date comparison.

Would really appreciate it.

All are full-on target schools. Nobody can answer this question without a lot more details, because you can get a banking job easily from all three.

It will come down to where she wants to live, where she wants to end up after school, and what kind of college experience she wants.

Stern, any day.

if she wants tech banking, berkeley

It's all pretty region-specific. If you want to do IBD on the east coast then go to the east coast school (stern), west coast then Berkeley, Chicago then michigan.

All of them place multiple kids into each of the bulge brackets. The recruiting environment couldn't be more different around each school though. I've heard that Stern is cutthroat competitive while at kids at Berkley have had crowds protest their interviews. I know the least about Ross, but it seems like the best school to have a the college experience and they have no problem sending kids to IBD - New York, Chicago or otherwise.

Stern is sending at least 7 to GS IBD NY and 6 to Evercore this year alone - dubious that the other two will come close in overall IBD placement either. But if you're looking for a traditional college experience, Stern (or NYU for that matter) is definitely the wrong way to go.

Sav, is this for FT & last year's SA? Or is this for this year's SA alone?

Only includes this year's 2014 FT class. Not counting any SA figures.

Ross is sending more than that to GS for SA this year. I'd personally go with Ross, unless you want west coast then obviously Haas

Yeah, as a Stern alum on the west coast, can comfortably say either Stern or Haas could get you into IBD, just a question of where you want to wind up longer-term...there are very few people from Stern out here.

If strictly based on recruitment #s to NYC, then Stern. Although if I were in your position I would go Ross to still have strong recruitment and have a fucking blast while at it.

Stern sucks. If you want a college experience, go elsewhere. If you are Asian, maybe Stern makes sense. I say Ross, its definitely the best balance between an awesome school that also places extremely well. You wont enjoy yourself at Stern

Based what I've seen across several banks, Stern just plainly dominates Ross when it comes to IBD placement numbers. Then again, I haven't seen anyone here claim otherwise. I'd venture to say Stern has much larger raw numbers than Haas as well, but you have to weigh that against the fact that Haas is sending kids to a much more diverse set of industries.

My perspective is this - she'd be an absolute nutcase to be committed to IBD if she's just coming out of high school. But if she really is, tell her to take Stern. Besides the obvious dick-measuring, there seems to be very little disagreement among the posters here. Stern does not provide a normal college experience. It's competitive, but there are plenty of people that need the motivation to really thrive.

I know you probably get a hard-on from the quasi-racist dig, but you've got it backwards. Proportionally, the non-Asians/Asian-females seem to do significantly better at every school. You can chalk up some of that to racism on the street, but coming from an Asian who landed offers myself, I feel like anyone with good social skills is going to be more competitive as the proportion of Asians in a school increases.

I don't understand your comment, what does that have to do with anything?.. I am saying that if OP is not an international student, he/she might want to avoid NYU because it is completely different than a traditional US University where you get the true "College" experience. Part of it is because of the massive amount of international students who have never even been to NYC before, and the other is because the school itself doesn't have a campus and is poorly structured. Oh, and the dorms are basically jail cells. There are no sports teams, no greek-life etc. Sure everyone there is extremely bright, but the counter to (I think) what you were saying is if you want to shape some character and actually gain some social-insight and have a good time doing so, NYU may not be a good choice.
