Stay at UVA or Transfer?
I am not set on finance at all, it is definitely a very intriguing career but I also want to leave the possibility of law school/phd. I know UVA has good placement but I am considering transferring because of fit and possibly doing global development/sustainable economics, which UVA doesn't have. Schools I am considering are Northwestern, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Penn CAS, and Georgetown SFS. Is there any major boost in placement with these transfers that justifies the move (I understand the major changes in academics)? What are your thoughts on this?
Edit: Is there a downside to transferring for ib recruiting? Like does it make networking harder since you join a year later or since they are all targets it should be fine?
