Dartmouth, Cornell, NYU (Stern) - presence and OCR?

H.S. Senior here!!

I wanted to hear opinions on Dartmouth v. Cornell v. Stern in terms of OCR and presence on the Street. I have also heard a lot about the 'Ivy' brand. Do you think that the brand of Dartmouth and Cornell would be more advantageous than Stern's location?

All thoughts are appreciated.

Well, if you according to the rankings Stern > Cornell & Dartmouth, but it's a 40 year decision not a 4 year decision. If it was me, I'd pick NYU, land a good job as an IB Analyst at a BB, and then go to the Ivy League Schools for MBA just for bragging rights.

Dartmouth crushes NYU at OCR - not the same league. Dartmouth > NYU > Cornell (by virtue of Stern being in NYC)

Assuming costs are equal, go to Dartmouth and don't look back

Dartmouth, hands down. It is way more fun, the alumni network might be the best of any school, and recruiting is probably top 5 in the country.

I went to a "top target" and am pretty envious of the undergrad experience my coworkers from Dartmouth had compared to mine. If I could do college over again I would definitely go Dartmouth instead.

Dartmouth > Cornell > Stern in terms of placement

Pretty easy decision

Dartmouth would be best out of these for recruiting for IB/MBB with Cornell second. Stern is far behind the two to be honest.

Dartmouth is an easy call here

although if you're talking Cornell Johnson, they do place fairly well

Pick whichever one you feel will give you the most enriching college experience. They're all going to set you up just fine for a lucrative finance job if you work hard and network smart.
