I've noticed that there is not a thread exactly like this for prospective monkeys to take a look at. I'm currently an undergrad second year applying to some targets/semi's as a transfer, and this would have been helpful if I didn't know exactly where I wanted to be.
What are some strong non-core universities that students can apply to, whether out of HS or as transfer students?
Some schools that come to my mind are:
- William & Mary (Dog St. to Wall St. Program)
- Penn St. (Nittany Lion Fund)
- Syracuse (Orange Value Fund)
- UMD (FBIS)
Those of you with experience on the street or with recruiting as an undergrad, what do you think? Throw some recommendations out there!
