Penn vs Duke vs Georgetown SFS vs Brown vs LSE
Currently at Brown (wanna transfer out since I don't like it too much) , got into these schools for transfer admission, wondering which would offer the best career prospect for investment banking/consulting. I am an international student from Asia and would like to primarily focus on landing a job in the US (or UK) after graduation (I know it's HARD for international students with no citizenship or permanent residency...)
Got accepted into:
Penn-CAS Economics (non-Wharton)
Georgetown SFS-International Economics
Brown-Economics (my current school)
LSE-Government and Economics
I have the following questions:
- I've always heard rumors that non-Wharton people at Penn are overshadowed by Wharton people and thus have disadvantages...
- How is Duke alumni's presence on the Street? Is Duke 2nd or 3rd tier on the target school list?
- I know Georgetown SFS is very well regarded by the State Department but how is SFS perceived by recruiters in the banking and consulting industry?
- Is Brown in the same cohort with Penn and Duke (or does it place higher)?
- LSE seems to be the top 1 target/feeder school for banks' London HQ? But too much uncertainty after Brexit...?
Would like to see how you guys rank these schools with respect to career prospect. Would also welcome any advice from you. Many thanks!
