I am long time lurker on WSO. I have learned a lot from you all, and now I am in a personal dilemma. I have spent the last eight years in the military (enlisted) working various administrative type jobs. Now, I want to break into private equity and start a new career. I have been accepted to UPenn LPS. Do most firms see UPenn LPS as a negative? I have looked on Linkedin; however, UPenn College of Arts and Science diplomas are what all LPS students receive, so they are indistinguishable from regular CAS student (it appears the only thing that might be different is my transcript). I see a lot of people from UPenn end up in PE after undergrad, but the majority of them are Wharton students.
Side note: I'm waiting to hear back from Cornell AEM, Georgetown MSB, Boston College CSM, and Boston University. If accepted to any of these institutions, should I drop UPenn LPS?
Monkeys any advice is greatly appreciated!
