I will be a freshman at Duke this fall, where I am an Angier B. Duke scholar, which is one of Duke's merit scholarship programs comparable to the Robertson scholarship. I turned down MIT and Stanford to take the scholarship, for many reasons but one of them was the fact that I received no financial aid from the other two schools.
After college I'm looking at something in private equity/maybe quant stuff/maybe trading stuff/probably ibanking stuff but of course I can't be too sure. Was it a mistake to turn down Stanford and MIT which I understand have better recruiting especially in the math/CS heavy fields of finance for Duke?
I understand that I've already made my decision but knowing where I stand competition-wise would help me know what I'm getting into any if Duke is better for some things than others.
