I am struggling immensely with the decision of where to attend B-school. I am looking for input from people who feel they understand what they are talking about and are confident in their answer. I have gathered so many opinions from people (Family, co-workers, etc) who are uninformed or have their own motives, so I am really looking for a neutral perspective on which school to attend.
I am looking to transition from sales at a mutual fund company to Investment Banking. I was accepted into these two schools-- I received a small scholarship to cornell ($6k a year) which is virtually negligible. The pro's that I see are as follows:
Cornell: very strong Ibanking immersion, great momentum on the street the last few years, Ivy, closer to the city for recruiting, large networking in NYC
Duke: seems to be regarded as a better overall program/brand, fantastic culture and reputation, higher ranked
Feedback would be tremendously appreciated!
