Help me make a decision!


I'm a high school senior/12th grade student, and I want to pursue a career in investment banking. I have applied to quite a few universities and have received offers from the following so far-

  1. UC Davis (USA)

  2. UMass Boston (USA)

  3. University of San Francisco (USA)

  4. Glasgow University (UK)

  5. Warwick University (UK)

  6. Christ University (India)

I'm still waiting on the London School of Economics, Duke University and the Ivy Leagues, but that's a long shot. (If I do get in to any one of these though, it's a pretty clear choice)

Any advice on which I should pick from the offers I have? Pros and Cons? Should I consider taking a gap year? Applying as a transfer student?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!
