I'm a high school senior this year and am deciding where to apply early. Was wondering what the general consensus was on what the top tier of undergraduate schools are for quant hedge funds and algo prop shops. MIT, Harvard, and Princeton are up there, right? Is UChicago good for prop shops in its backyard? What about Duke and Yale?
About me: I have Penn legacy but don't really want to go there. Am looking to get a degree in math, stats, or financial engineering probably. Don't like frats but not a fan of activist lefties or weird kids either. 1580 SAT and good all-around stats, course rigor, and application.
