Basically an Australian student doing Finance. Based on my GPA, I exceed the eligibility requirements to go on Summer School for some top places. In the US, I have Harvard University in mind. Outside of the US, I'm considering LSE.
Once I graduate and (hopefully) work at a BB, my long-term goal is to transfer / lateral to NY / Chicago. However everybody seems to think LSE would look better on my resume than Harvard. The only rationale behind this is it's more common for Australian students to do a summer program at LSE.
Question: Would attending Summer School at Harvard University provide much in the way of benefit when working in the states / pursuing an MBA? I prefer the Harvard name, but I would have to pay up front ( approx. 8K) which I can afford, but that would leave me high and dry. Where as for LSE, I can get a loan (we call it HECS over here)
