How difficult is internal acceptance to UVA - McIntire?
I'm a senior in high school and I was recently accepted to UVA. I want to major in finance, but UVA doesn't offer direct admission to their business school (McIntire). You have to complete two years at UVA, then apply to be admitted to their business school. I'm unsure if it's worth taking the risk of not being able to major in finance and instead have to major in Econ, because I have an acceptance to BCs Caroll school of management. To give you a frame of reference I got a 2170 on the SAT and had somewhere around a 3.85 unweighted gpa. My question is is McIntire really as hard as people say it is? And if so, am I better off (from a recruitment standpoint) majoring in finance at BC or Econ at UVA? Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Also: I'm out of state for UVA, does anyone know the OOS acceptance rate to the McIntire school? I know the overall acceptance rate is about 60%.
