Per the Wall Street post, interested to hear people's opinions on school prestige for London. Trying to keep the tiers roughly equivalent to the other thread.
Tier 1: Oxford, Cambridge, LBS at post-grad?
Tier 2: LSE, Imperial
Tier 3: UCL, Warwick
Tier 4: Durham, Nottingham, Bath, Bristol, Edinburgh, KCL, a couple of other unis depending on the bank but effectively semi-targets that give you a shot at it if you put in some effort.
If you put in continental schools, then maybe Bocconi and HEC Paris would be Tier 2, with the likes of SSE, St Gallen and others on Tier 3? Anticipating some objections over the separation of Tier 2 and Tier 3, but I think the US Tier 3 schools below have similar overall prestige to UCL and Warwick internationally. LSE and Imperial are definitely more prestigious in their respective fields, and few recruiters would choose a UCL/Warwick student over a LSE/Imperial student, ceteris paribus.
For reference, the Wall Street post had the following:
Tier 1: Harvard, Yale, Wharton, Stanford, Princeton, MIT
Tier 2: Columbia, UChicago, Penn, Dartmouth, Duke, Cornell
Tier 3: NYU Stern, UMich Ross, UVA McIntire, Georgetown MSB, UCB Haas
Tier 4: Northwestern, WashU Olin, USC Marshall, Emory Goizueta, UNC KF, UCLA, BC Carroll
