Georgetown McDonough vs. NYU Stern

Hi so I currently got into the business school at Georgetown and at NYU for my undergrad and I'm having trouble deciding where to go. Essentially I know Stern is much more reputable than McDonough but I really want the college campus vibe and the social scene. I don't exactly know if I'll have it at stern. Would I still have the same opportunity to get a job or internship at one of the top firms from Georgetown? Please reply with any suggestions or information you may have.

Sounds like you're a better fit for Georgetown. Fit is often underrated on this forum, and I think it should be the deciding factor here (as both schools are fantastic).

I go to Rutgers, so no bias whatsoever, I'd go with Georgetown. It sounds like you want to and you should go with your gut.

Brodie - if you want an experience and see yourself getting it from Georgetown, then go there. You will never get your youth back but will have plenty of time to earn the income that you want. Schools only matter so much past a certain point. If you display other qualities that are sought after in the future, you'll do just fine.
