Background of me: International student studying abroad at a non-target in Midwest
I am transferring soon, and I'm getting nervous already because of the fact I'll be majoring in Econ. (School will be either UMich or NYU, not yet decided) Both have great target b-school, and Econ is looked down on due to their existence. Btw, NYU Econ offers STEM and UMich doesn't!!!
- If I have an IB internship (in addition to search fund and ER) before transferring, would that completely offset the "Ross/Stern-loser" label that will hinder my chance for BB IBD NYC?
- I'm not a math guy. So no Math/Econ double. Maybe double with one of Stat/Philo cuz I am interested and eager to learn them. Would you recommend this choice to me in terms of recruiting?
- Do NYU and UMich Econ people have a decent shot for MBB? I am also highly interested in MC and might turn to it. So the MBB chance is definitely something to consider.
Really do appreciate your time. This is sooo important and I want to hear how others think.
