Tier 1: Georgetown
Tier 2: BC/Notre Dame/IU
Tier 3: NYU (CAS)
Tier 4: Bucknell / Villanova

Assumptions: Goergetown recruits heavier than BC & Notre Dame. Also, Georgetown is closer to NYC, and offers weekly bus rides to the city which is invaluable when it comes to coffee chats / networking.

While strong, IU is not as prestigious as the other schools. BC & Notre Dame both have strong undergrad business schools, but are a step behind Gtown.

NYU CAS would be decent from a networking standpoint, but the competition is cuthroat, and you would have to transfer into stern to have the best chances.

Nova and Bucknell are both strong in their own regard. Bucknell would be more fun, and probably less competition. Nova has decent recruiting but not nearly in the same ballpark as Gtown/BC/Notre Dame.

Hope this helps.

Even without Stern, still think NYU ranks ahead of BC. Nova also a riser. Notre Dame also better than Tier 2.

My rankings:
Tier 1: Georgetown / Notre Dame
Tier 2: IU Kelley / Villanova / NYU CAS
Tier 3: BC Carroll
Tier 4: Bucknell

Interesting that you're comparing undergrad business schools for all the programs except NYU. Are these college applications (assuming too early for acceptances)?

I've already gotten into Kelley.

I'm thinking about applying to:
Georgetown, Notre Dame, Cornell, Middlebury, Williams (Reach)
UMich, UVA, UT Austin (Match)
OSU, IU Kelley, UWisc (Safety)

There are kids at almost all of these schools who are landing at the most elite places on the street. Georgetown and Notre Dame (you'd be surprised how many Irish are at great groups) will probably be the strongest. Villanova is underrated. All can land you on WS, with Bucknell and IU being weaker.

I'd choose Notre Dame (especially if your Catholic and enjoy that type of environment...seems like you are given BC, Nova, and ND apps). Good football, amazing campus, great network, and you and your bros can do an Ireland pilgrimage, lol.
