Which should I choose out of UT McCombs, Notre Dame Mendoza, and Georgetown MSB?

I have been procrastinating on choosing a college to go to and don't know which one to pick. Which one of the aforementioned choices the most well regarded. I plan on going to law school after my undergrad, but in case I change my mind I want to know which of the schools I got into will have the best job placement. With financial aid, all of them are about the same price, so cost is not a factor.

If you want to do law, I feel like Georgetown is the move. If you wanted finance, I would probably go with ND, as the alumni base in finance (at least from what I've seen) is the strongest of the 3. Stronger culture and sense of community that makes alums more willing to help current students from what I've been told by my friends who went there. I've interacted with plenty of people at other firms that went to Notre Dame. Very rarely come across anyone from Georgetown or UT, not the say that there aren't plenty on the street.

not sure where you're working or looking but there's a ton of ut and Georgetown kids in finance in nyc. I went to Georgetown (MSB) so I'm biased (plus everyone I know who wanted to to IB got IB internships/ft from all 4 undergraduate schools; pretty much every BB / EB / MM recruits on campus; had so much fun and miss it every day) so I would strongly recommend Georgetown; however, you really can't go wrong with any of those schools!

If you want to study law, 100% Georgetown. If you're unsure and want a school with general prestige that keeps doors open, 100% Georgetown.

Notre Dame and UT are both great schools and either is a justifiable choice if you have a specific reason. Absent that, go to Georgetown and have a blast.
