So I'm currently a freshman at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business. I just applied to transfer to USC Marshall and Cornell ILR (not the business school). I did this mostly because my parents wanted me to, and I know I shouldn't count my eggs before they hatch but I genuinely feel that I have a decent shot at getting into both of them. However, my question is, is it even worth it to transfer? Obviously both USC and Cornell have significantly better brand names than Indiana, but that's about it. Here's what I know so far that is causing my inner conflict: * I intend to go into

Which one is more prestigious and better all around. Which is better for the east coast (obviously USC for the west) and which one is better for IB, Consulting, etc?

Hi everybody! I need your opinions on this tough decision I have to make within the next few days. Disclaimer: Cost does not make a difference. I was recently accepted by UVA (OOS) and by USC Marshall. I have read all the forums on WSO and I still can't make my mind up. UVA is clearly better for IB, but the truth is I am not sure if I want to go down that road. I am more entrepreneurial, so USC and Cali would maybe be a better fit. I am just not sure what I want to do within the business world and where I want to end up when I am older. If I go to USC it will be hard to go back to the east

Hi guys, I currently have a big decision to make. I'm hoping you guys can give me some input. I am currently studying at UC Riverside, and I just got an admission letter from UC Berkeley, USC, and Indiana University - Bloomington. I am hoping to break into IB in the future. From my understanding, all 3 schools are semi-target schools for IB. I am just very troubled by which school to pick because I would love to go to Berkeley, but I'm being admitted as an Econ major. As an economics major, will I be exposed to the same type of opportunities as Haas students? Also, I heard it's pretty hard for

Hi all, Some background info, I'm a senior in high school, US-Canada Dual citizen and I've been accepted to USC Marshall and Western Ivey. Ivey would be around 80k CAD for 4 years and USC would be 180k CAD. I currently live in Toronto, but hope to enter high finance directly out of undergrad or consulting if that isn't possible. Ideally, I would like to work in New York. Which school is better for in terms of opportunities and is it worth the extra money to go to USC? Also which is better for student experience as a Indian male. Thanks!

I'm currently a high school senior graduating in June. I got accepted to both USC Marshall and Ross undergraduate business schools and am currently having a hard time choosing between them. Can anyone give their inputs on each school's weather, vibe, social aspect/greek life, surrounding location/campus, and placements? I do prefer to eventually come back to work in NYC sometime in the future, but I don't mind doing IB in LA. Also, I've heard that Ross is cutthroat, can anyone attest to this? Thanks.

Hi guys! I was accepted into Marshall at USC and Econ at UMich and I'm having a difficult time choosing between the two. I'm originally from Southern California so I would prefer to go out of state for the experience because I'm a junior level transfer and only have two years left but everyone thinks I'm crazy to pass up the opportunity to be at b-school at USC while I'm in LSA at UMich. I 100% plan on going to grad school and pursing a MBA so what I'm wondering is if it really makes a difference if I go to UMich for Econ for undergrad or would it be better for me to do Bus Admin at Marshall

I am a transfer student coming from a CC in NJ. So far I have been accepted into Rutgers (state school/ fall back) and USC Marhsall. As of right now I am looking at the full sticker price at both to finish my last 2 years of undergrad. I am still waiting on decisions from Georgetown and Villanova as well. I need some help in deciding where to finish my undergrad. I know placement for a finance student at Rutgers is dismal, so if I attend RU I'd focus on accounting and try and break into the big 4. On the other hand, if I attend USC I would want break into anything finance related (which I have

I applied to transfer after one year at my current college and I have been accepted into UC Berkeley in Pre-Economics as a junior transfer student. I have also been accepted into USC Marshall as a sophomore transfer student. Which school should I attend if I want to go into Investment Banking or Big 4 TAS or MBB. I feel that being a junior transfer student would not give me enough time to network and find compared to spending 3 years at USC. Is Berkeley that much better than USC. Also I want to get an MBA possibly from USC in the future. If I were able to stay at Cal for 3 years, then which

my goals: If I went to UNC, I would aim for investment banking in Charlotte or NYC and settle for corporate finance. If I went to USC, I would aim for investment banking in LA or NYC and settle for corporate finance or big 4 accounting. At the other 3 options, I would probably aim for big 4 accounting. I have enough college credit that I wouldn't need to get my MAcc. my options UNC Chapel Hill - $130k total; graduate w/ $40k debt USC - $140k total; graduate w/ $50k debt Boston University - $105k total; graduate with $25k debt Baruch - Free plus a Macbook Pro and a $7.5k summer stipend Temple -

Hello, I am trying to decide between transferring to UT Austin with a major in economics and a finance minor (by using the BEOP program) or going to USC Marshall to major in business administration and have a finance emphasis (which is the same as a finance major). Also by the way this is for undergraduate. Finance is my true passion and it is what I want to have a career in. At UT I would be taking 4 finance classes in McCombs or I would take 8 finance classes at Marshall. USC offered me about half tuition (so about 30k for everything) and UT Austin will be 30k for the first year and I should

I recently got into Marshall and SMG for their full time mba programs. BU went one step further and offered me acceptance into the dual degree MS (in Info Systems) & MBA program, which will still take only 2 years. I am from NorCal and want to work in SF post-B school, in a role such as tech strategy or consulting in the tech space. What is the better option?
