Im staring at IU in the fall and will be applying to Kelley honors and The McCombs school of business at UT austin. Assuming that I get in the Kelley honors and McCombs non-honors, which would be my better option if I'm a finance major looking to get a job in investment banking (hopefully on wall st)?

I had to make the same decision when I was in your shoes and I choose Kelley. It was a terrific decision.

What makes you say that?

Because you specifically want to go to New York. Kelly's workshop has excellent placement, and if you go to their honors program, chances are you'll get in.

Plus, this is just an inference here, you're probably in-state for Kelley. I don't think the cost would justify the difference in rank. The story may be different if you were talking about BHP, and were targeting Houston Investment Banking, but for your goals, Kelley makes a whole lot of sense.
