NYU (Stern) vs UVA Undergrad
I'm a long-time lurker/first-time poster--I apologize if my post is not properly formatted. Anyways, I'm a HS senior looking to go into Investment Banking and need help choosing a college. I was recently admitted into NYU Stern and UVA. By sheer business school rankings, Stern appears to be consistently higher than UVA. However, I am concerned about Stern's culture: with every single student shooting to go into IB, it seems cutthroat. I am also turned off by the lack of campus. UVA, on the other hand, checks a lot of boxes: a spacious campus, big-time sports, and a vibrant social scene. Is the difference in job placement massive between the two? Career preparation is my #1 priority, but if Stern's job placement is only marginally better than UVA, I think I'll choose UVA for the above reasons. I am truly going back and forth between Stern and UVA and any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
