Exchange to UPenn or NYU for IB/PE/HF recruitment?
I'm one of those long time readers, first time posters of WSO.
Currently in my final year ugrad at an Australian University, I have the option of going to either University of Pennsylvania or NYU for exchange. Reason I'm going is that Australia, though a large landmass, is quite small in the financial ocean. There is no recruiting for PE/HFs here and the numbers are extremely small as well for large multinational PE due to the tax system.
Having done a few searches for the above on WSO, it seems as though UPenn>NYU. Can someone explain why this is the case? I would've thought that NYU's location would mean that is a hotspot for recruitment.
NB: I'm really only interested in PE/HF since we do have IB recruitment down here.
I do realise the above are notoriously difficult to break into anyway.
So which is better for PE/HF recruitment?
Another question I have is whether attending UPenn would give me a greater chance at being accepted into Wharton down the track?
