which is better for MBB: Penn CAS or NYU Stern?

Hi everyone, I'm a current high school junior who wants to go into consulting. I'm trying to figure out if I should ED to Penn's College of Arts and Sciences of NYU's Stern business school. (Not considering applying to Wharton). Thanks!!

Penn for sure. The key is to choose an easy major, get a high gpa, be in a consulting club, and apply to a less competitive office. This should work out.

Philly would be a common one for penn students. Easier than nyc or Boston for sure.
