Personally, I'd take USC off and also Cornell and Brown. USC because it's an overpriced party school (lots of hot babes, but no real significant return on investment career-wise), then Cornell for its miserable looks and Brown for the abundance of hippies. Then how is CMC on your list if you're looking for IBD/consulting/PE/HF??!? Georgetown is overrated IMO as well; it seems more like a public policy type of place.

IB, PE, Consulting are different fields with different placements. With that said, there are people in each of those industries from all the schools listed.

In terms of banking - Cornell, Brown, CMU, CMC, USC, Northwestern, and even Stanford, Yale, Princeton to some extent have less placement (although a lot of this variance can be explained by self-selection). Notably you're missing UCB and Duke which both kill it in IB.

In terms of PE, don't expect any big PE names to come for you unless you come out of Harvard or Wharton for the most part. Although a successful junior summer will help you out in that regard...

In terms of consulting, the Ivies altogether tend to have a strong alumni base with Uchicago and Northwestern carrying strongly as well. NYU's consulting placement is notoriously weak (perhaps 1 to MBB per year) with other undergrad b school's USC, UVA, etc only doing marginally better. There seems to be a preference for strong liberal arts education as far as I can see.

Rejoice, plebes. Lebron dug up his "Facebook" from his old analyst days. (It's a book. Like an actual bound book. Do they still make those?)

Just remember...

Brown isn't a real Ivy.

If you are truly obsessive and overly ambitious, then you can get into ib or consulting from nearly any top 100 school.
