My top 10 choices are (in order of preference):
Upenn (Wharton)(should I ED?)
Cornell (biz AEM)(should I ED?)
UVA (McIntyre)
NYU (Stern)
Washington @ St. Louis

Thank you

What state are you from? Out-of-state applicants to AEM have a really tough chance of getting in. So if you do get in out-of-state, consider it a major accomplishment.

I think you are in for NYU, UVA, and the rest. You stand a good chance for AEM and Wharton. If you have any questions about AEM, ask me, I am an AEM student. =) You should definitely apply ED to one of the programs. At Cornell, you can take Hotel Admin courses and courses from the other 6 undergrad colleges to attain a very unique degree. Applied Economics and Management...just the name is different and it's a unique degree in itself.

which one should i apply ED to? Do you think that I have a chance of getting into wharton ED?

I honestly don't know about U Penn Wharton. I remember someone on this board who is also from NY applied to AEM ED and was deferred. He had a 1470 SAT and was later rejected when RD came around.

He's now at NYU Stern

I'd advise you NOT to apply ED to a school without knowing full well that you enjoy it (i.e. having visited thoroughly, investigated all of the schools offerings, and questions to your satisfaction). Locking yourself in because of a reputation is one way to get yourself into a miserable four years.

Penn/Cornell might be great ED schools for you...but make sure you *know* you love that school you apply to.

By Shaka (Shaka) on Saturday, April 24, 2004 - 04:35 pm: Edit

i will love both...i visited and researched upenn and i heard a lot of stuff about cornell's programs. my question is that whether I have a better chance of getting acceptance at upenn or cornell?

if you really want to do business go to wharton. It's a much better program than Cornell and has way more clout in the business world. Cornell's business program is practically unheard of. Recruiting-wise Wharton send the largest # of students to work at I-banks and consulting firms. I read somewhere(I think businessweek?) that if you combined all the recruits for Ibanks from all the Ivies (except Penn-Wharton) they equaled a little over half of the # of wharton recruits. Ask any corporate recruiter which school has the best undergrad program and the majority will say Wharton.

Also you should really look into NYU Stern. It has a great program and it has clout in the corporate world. They ranked 2 in most recruits to Ibanks and consulting firms. They had more recruits also that all the ivies combined (except Wharton).

Regarding ED: I applied ED to Wharton and I think it gave me a huge boost...however, I would suggest you go visit all your schools, really read up on all of them and after that if you are completely set on a school apply ED. Pretty much apply ED if you know that you are 100% sure you want to go there. Remember you have to matriculate (well you tech. don't if the financial stuff doesn't work for you)

bern: how were your stats? i assume you were accepted?

By Bern700 (Bern700) on Sunday, April 25, 2004 - 10:53 pm: Edit

actually my stats are much lower than the average at Wharton. They are under my profile. I think a few things put me over the top. My ECs are good, I thought my essays and recs were awesome, I applied ED, I'm a URM, and I come from an underrepresented state (Az). All of these played a factor. If you have any questions you can AIM me, my sn is the same as my username on this site.
