Hi, I got accepted into RBS and IU Kelley and I am bit confused on what is the best option for me. I want to major in finance and possibly minor in information systems. I got into IU Hutton Honors College and I got a nice scholarship so my total cost to attend oos is about 46k. However, for RBS I didn't get into the honors program but my total cost to attend per year is 36k. There's a lot of hype around IU Kelley's IB workshop but I don't even want to go into IB and would rather stay in corporate finance or consulting or something else like information systems. Which school would be better to

As a rising hs senior I have two options. I ask that you evaluate both and provide me reasons to pick the one of your preference. Keep in mind that I want to become a banking analyst after graduation (hopefully in a solid M&A group) and exit to MM PE soon after. 1) Apply Early Decision to Cornell University: This would entail over 120k in debt and a great burden on my parents (they do not qualify for financial aid but would still have a tough time paying). I think I would get in Early Decision but in the regular decision round things become a lot less predictable. 2) Avoid Early Decision

I didn't do so well in high school and got a 3.4 gpa and am going to Rutgers next year. To stay productive I am learning python and will eventually try to learn algorithm trading and I am reading up a lot and staying updated on the market. What can I do from now on to maybe have a shot at IB?

Hello everyone! I have passed CFA Level 1 and am currently planning for MS Finance for 2020. I have applied to the following universities: University of Texas, at Dallas- Received admit SUNY University of Buffalo- Received admit Rutgers University- Received admit CUNY Baruch college. I am facing a lot of difficulty as to deciding which university to go to. My main aim is to join that university that will help me to complete my CFA certification and also which will give an edge to find a job in the field of coroporate finance. If anyone has any suggestions, please tell. It will be a huge help

I have to make a pretty tough decision. I have to choose between these two schools for undergrad and I'm really in a rut at the moment. Rutgers will basically be free, up to 10k in loans max. Gabelli, will leave me in a position where I may end up putting a heavy financial burden (60k) on my parents, and leave with about 10-20k in debt. I intend to go into IB out of undergrad, what should I do? If possible, if you leave your opinion, can you further elaborate on why you think ____ is a better option? Thanks ahead of time!

I'm a high school student who has just recently been accepted to Rutgers Business School (undergrad of course). This is my state flagship, and from what I've read/know, a very good business school. Before I get the answer that Rutgers has no reputation on the street, I should say that I'm not looking for an IB job. The only business background I have is in accounting, but I am more interested in becoming a financial analyst, particularly for an investment management company, so I could work my way up to portfolio manager eventually.

I know that Rutgers isn't a target that banks recruit at, however I'm aware that there are a decent number of Rutgers grads that get jobs on the street, most of whom were part of LIBOR, etc. What I wanted to know is, how much would it hurt my chances of breaking into IB if I end up going to Rutgers school of Arts and Sciences, majoring in either English or Biology (I know they're worlds apart, but bear with me) as opposed to Rutgers Business School? Im going to be a freshman next year. I think I could easily transfer to the Business school after a semester if I had to, but Id honestly be a lot

Hey guys, I'm currently a junior studying Economics with a Business Admin minor at Rutgers University. I would like to delve more into the consulting/investment banking world, where I would be able to make an impact in businesses and make a lot of money doing so. Just wanted to say hi, and I will be lurking around and seeing what out here in this website as it was recommended to me because of my interests. I hope to gain a lot of insights and perspectives in the finance world, and hopefully make my break in the industry.
