I'm a nontraditional student newly out of active duty military. I've been admitted to a few good schools. Though, my school choice will ultimately depend on the job opportunities post-undergrad. My school choices are Yale, UChicago, and Dartmouth. Dartmouth and UChicago have a large focus on the financial district more so than Yale. Though I cannot disregard Yale's network opportunity through name power alone. Chicago is a financial hub for hedge funds so it makes sense to attend UChicago. At the end of the day, if three students graduated with the same extracurricular activities, GPA, and

I've been accepted to the above schools. Some of the discussions have a consensus that Yale through connection opportunities outweigh the other schools for HF/VC opportunities out of undergrad even though UChicago and Dartmouth have a large finance placement. Brown has a large consulting placement but not in HF as UChicago or Dartmouth. I've even heard Dartmouth is heavy in IB(which is not what I want to do even if it's the conventional route to HF). I'm having difficulty deciding which school to attend. More consideration: Yale did not offer very good financial aid. Dartmouth 100% aid

I'm planning to major in Economics at either Brown or Dartmouth in the fall. I was wondering if I could get input on which school to attend solely based on post-grad opportunities in banking and consulting. As for fit, both schools offer different experiences but I'm excited to be a part of either. I'm leaving this open-ended because I want to listen to any thoughts/advice you might have! I know this isn't Reddit or College Confidential, but I'm in need of serious advice from people working in these industries.

I was recently accepted to both Dartmouth and SMU. If this were all, Dartmouth would be the easy choice. However, at SMU I will be a Cox BBA Scholar and a Presidents Scholar. The Presidents Scholars program is a full ride and is only offered to approximately 25 students year. Cox BBA Scholar allows you to start business classes your freshman year and gives you early access to advising service along with certain BBA scholar only events. Given this information, if I want to enter IB, what school should I choose?

I got into Princeton in the early round, and I'm starting to have second thoughts. The only reason I didn't apply to Dartmouth early is because I wanted to keep my options open, and not make a firm commitment to the school. I visited Dartmouth last year, and felt like I'd fit in really well. I liked the fraternities, the close-knit community, the laid-back environment, the outdoorsy interests, etc. I liked pretty much everyone I met too. I come from a pretty competitive high school, and it'd be nice to be in a place where kids aren't so cutthroat, which Princeton, with its grade deflation and

I have been admitted as a Freshman to UNC Chapel Hill and Dartmouth, and would love some industry perspective on whether or not there is a discernible difference in recruiting opportunities from the two schools. How significant is it that I could attain a business-centric degree as an undergrad at Kenan-Flagler as opposed to Dartmouth's liberal arts curriculum? I am particularly interested in Asset Management rather than IB or consulting, so I would appreciate any specifically pertinent input.
