IU Kelley or Cornell Hotel?

Hey guys. The title is pretty self-explanatory. I have gotten into both and want to know what is the best way to go for  careers in investment banking operations or working at a hedge fund(not quite sure what I want to do yet). Price isn't really a factor in my decision. I have assembled a pros and cons list, but I want to know what you guys think too. 

Kelley Pros:

  • Investment banking workshop. I have heard its fantastic.

  • Student life. Kelley sounds really fun. 

  • Girls. I think they have more girls than cornell? 

Kelley Cons: 

  • Its kind of big 

  • I have heard there are a lot of hardos (I think thats the right word)

  • I have never been to Indiana. Not sure how I will like it. 

Hotel Pros:

  • Ivy league 

  • I am from the northeast so I'm used to the weather

  • Smaller

Hotel Cons:

  • No investmen banking workshop. The fact that they don't have one really makes me nervous.

-Not sure what there is to do in Ithaca. Doesn't seem very fun if I'm being honest.

-Sports suck. 

This is my list so far. I'm kind of leaning towards Kelley for the IBW. What do you guys think?

Ok, at this point it's just trolling. Nobody who is smart enough to get into an Ivy would have to think about this.

Edit: From your profile, I can confirm that you are a troll
