USC is under sanctions from the NCAA, does this hurt their prestige?

Feb 8, 2012

Not enough info given.

Do you want do IB in California? Go Haas.

Do you want to be a quant? Go CMU.

What are you going to major in at each school?

Feb 8, 2012

No.

Feb 8, 2012

^yes.

for IB anywhere (no real location preference) and for grad school.

Almost entirely depends on where you'd like to live after college -- all great, great schools.

Also, for the top 3, it depends on what you want to go into. People say that Stern is better for finance/investment banking related stuff as it is in NY whereas Ross is better for other stuff.

I want to go into IB and I got both Stern and Ross but in the end I took Ross because you get a better college experience and Ross is higher ranked overall. I figured that I might as well enjoy college life because, more likely than not, picking one of the two will really make no difference. Also, I don't like the competitive, tearing-the-page-out-of-classmate's-textbooks-to-get-better-grades attitude at Stern.

You moron. lol. Stern kills Ross in NYC IBD placement. Ross is half-decent because a decent amount of grads end up in satellite offices in Chicago. Still fewer than Stern though.

And that thing about competitiveness is a myth. Stern is no more competitive than Columbia or Cornell or Michigan Ross, for example. I go to school in the same city as NYU, and have tons of buddies at Stern. Very chill. A little too focused on getting top-tier BB IBD, but that's the same at every top undergrad program these days, and otherwise very cool.

Oh, and there's no better college life than going to school in NYC. I have friends all over and they have the usual typical stories to tell of what they did during semester -- crazy frat party, crazy prank, blah blah blah. In NYC, you get some of that and so much more. ;)

I would say Stern and Northwestern are on par for IBD, but Northwestern gets the edge overall for being solid for consulting recruiting as well.

Let's see here. Jumping straight to an insult and using your opinion as an absolute statement. All the makings of an absolutely shit argument as you have displayed. If you read what I posted, I did concede that Stern is better for investment banking than Ross is but I felt the positives of Ross outweigh the slight benefit in terms of recruitment that Stern may offer.

I also like how you state that it is myth yet you attend neither school. My OPINION is that Ross/Michigan provides a much better college experience and, as it turns out, so do the majority of other people as Ann Arbor is consistently ranked as one of the top college towns and as providing one of the best college experiences.

So take your flawed, stupid arguments and GTFO.

Seedy my man's got it exactly right. Some of the schools he and I have listed below others send more people to Wall Street but the supply/demand equation doesn't work in their favor as a larger number of students at these places seek IBD jobs making them more competitive (Northwestern vs. NYU is a good example).

Northwestern
NYU Stern
UCB Haas
UVA-McIntire
Michigan Ross
Carnegie Mellon Tepper
UCLA
USC Marshall/BC Carroll

you morons do realize that these ranking discussions are on the same level as "who is smarter? black people or white people?", right?

What comp fi

Ttsvg

As long as you're not as big a dumbass as this topic indicates, you can get into IBD from any of those schools. It depends more on what region you want to work in.

Jan 9, 2014

You do realize that every answer you get will have a regional bias, right?

I would say:

NYU Stern
UCB - Haas
Northwestern University
UCLA
University of Michigan - Ross
USC - Marshall
Boston College
Carnegie Mellon
University of Virginia
