Fordham Vs. Baruch
Hello, I am a High School Senior from NY and I am making the decision to study Finance at either Fordham (RH Campus) or Baruch. I understand they are both "non-targets" but due to my not so great grades I must work with what I got. Here is my Dilemma:
Pro: Student run investment group is very good and places well into IB, Pretty good social life, Strong alumni basis, more "college" feel I suppose
Con: About 25k a year (affordable), Would possibly have to commute about an hour every day, Student run fund is available to only 24 upper class men making it very selective
Pro: Would be free, Also has a good student run fund but IDK how it places in IB, Fund has about 60 spots available to all students(less selective?), would be shorter commute
Con: Alumni base exists but apparently they have "crab-in-a-bucket" mentality, Is much more competitive among students, lack of "college social life", less "prestige"
Sorry for my rambling but at the end of the day I just want to know what would be my best bet for a career or internship in IB or WM. IDC about social life that much and cost isn't too important but it still matters. I am just asking for a general opinion or if anyone who goes to either school could give feedback I'd appreciate it. Also everything I've mentioned above is just from what I've heard so don't hold me to it.
