I have decided, after quite a few posts on College Confidential, to post my query here on Wall Street Oasis which seems to have a base of older, more experienced users that can perhaps provide me with a different perspective!
I have been accepted to USC-Marshall, UT Business Honors, UVA, UNC-Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt, and Rice. I was also waitlisted at Duke. I have pretty much narrowed it down to UVA and UT Business Honors, choosing not to chase the undergrad econ route I'd have to take at Rice, Vandy, and Duke or the business schools at USC or UNC that I feel aren't as good of a fit for me as UVA McIntire or UT Business Honors.
This being said, I'd describe myself as a Prospective Business/Finance major with an interest in possibly exploring Economics as well (more likely as a minor).
I have visited UT many times and will be visiting UVA for the first time for a "day on the lawn" session soon. I'm going back and forth between these schools and all they have to offer me. Both UVA and UT seem to have great social scenes with highly regarded business schools that offer fantastic opportunities to study abroad and intern. At UT I'm already in the business school where as with McIntire I'd have to apply, like everyone, during my second year. The UT BHP perhaps offers more individual attention(~110 students per year vs ~300 at McIntire) but UVA is a much smaller university with a more impressive student body as a whole(Due to holistic admissions vs top 9% rule).
I'm basically just asking for any advice or insight people might have into both of these schools and the advantages/disadvantages of both. At this point I desire to work in NYC upon graduation and even though BHP does place many students there, I assume McIntire has an advantage?
Also, since WSO seems to be a hot-spot forum for MBA admissions, how do these schools compare in admissions for top-tier MBA programs? (assuming a similar gpa and resume is accomplished at both)
