Is UVA that good?
So I got into UVA out-of-state and will be attending this fall to major in economics. During my sophomore year, I will apply and hopefully get into McIntire to study finance. I understand that UVA does pretty well with investment banking.
What if I don't get into McIntire? How does an Econ degree from UVA hold up?
How does UVA do in other fields in finance?
How does UVA compare to Ivies and other top schools in terms of placement at top firms? Does its prestige hold up?
