I'm an incoming freshman at NU (deferred due to military service) from Singapore, and i'm interested in returning to Asia to work again after graduating. However, I spoke recently to a familyand it feels like NU's reputation in Asia isn't as strong as what I'd hoped it'd be. Particularly, I got the impression that unless I was in an Ivy it would be extremely difficult to land an position in Singapore.
How true is this, and what is the general impression of Northwestern in Asia, particularly in Singapore, for IBD. Furthermore, is it worth transferring to an Ivy such as Penn or Cornell?
