Undergrad decisions

I am trying to decide what school to go to for next year. My choices are IU Kelley, UGA, Clemson, Fordham, and Umiami. Cost is not really an issue. Obviously, IU Kelley is the highest ranked business school but I didn't love the weather. UGA, Clemson, and Umiami all had amazing campuses and weather. Fordham is on my list because of it's proximity to NYC and I have heard the Gabelli school is solid. Opinions?

Curious why UG and UMiami are on the list but not UF. Do you think you'll get rejects from Warrington ?

I would go with IU Kelley and not think twice about it, but that's just me.

Current sophomore at Fordham. If you do a linkedin Search you will be suprised by the amount of people we have in the IB industry. We have dedicated recruiting teams at BAML GS and Barclays too. Also sophomore year you apply to the Finance scholars group which is a selective group that pushes to get kids into IB so they do a lot of events with alumni in the industry.

Lastly, the Fordham alumni base is incredibly loyal. Everyone knows the hit rate for cold emails are incredibly low. However at this school every 10 cold-emails I send asking for an informational interview I would say usually 8/10 will respond, so very good rate.

Obviously there are better options but I seriously think Fordham is solid and it doesn't deserve a lot of shit it gets, it is just overshadowed by Stern and Columbia. Maybe I am just bias. Feel free to message me if you have more questions.
