Hmm.. time to pick from the 8 ivy's. You'll get in anywhere. Don't expect an invitation from HYPS as no one should but lets say your chances are good. If you like the city then go to NYU Stern. People will tell you to go to Wharton because of that # 1 ranking and all the undergrad hyped up stuff. If you desire the life of New York City and want to get an awesome business education and get just as many opportunities if not more then go to NYU Stern you won't regret it.

come on peoplesssssssss help an indian out

By Somedaynever (Somedaynever) on Tuesday, August 24, 2004 - 07:04 pm: Edit

duuude i swear you have the same stats as me.....

hahahahahahah AND being that i am indian, and being that i am also looking to major in econ/finance i'll help a brother out.

since im looking at both wharton and stern ill just compare those two. wharton does have a little more prestige associated with it, as the stern program is not ranked as high. however, they are both great undergrad business programs. the advantage to stern is that because it is in the city, you will have a good amount more internships availible to you at wharton.

my uncle is a wharton alumn, and when i was asking him about the two he told me that he would spend hours every weekend to take the train from philly to NYC just to work [cuz thats where most finance internships are availible]

so if you're willing to do that when you do get an internship, and if youre looking to go to the number 1 in the USA go to wharton.

if you want to be in the city and if you want to be closer to many of the opportunities in the field then go to Stern.

i'm visiting UVA tomorrow actually so i'll know about that one soon enough, but one question for you, how are Sloan and UMich???

By Somedaynever (Somedaynever) on Tuesday, August 24, 2004 - 08:49 pm: Edit

by the way, do you have an AIM sn, i'd like to ask you some questions about FBLA. I was also considering starting a chapter in my highschool [which is also in NJ]

By Smear87 (Smear87) on Wednesday, August 25, 2004 - 10:06 am: Edit

thanks for the advice somedaynever. Stern and Wharton are my top choices and I've been going back and forth because of the prestige of Wharton and the great opportunities I'll have at Stern. I haven't visited Sloan or UMich yet.

apply Wharton ED. You'll get in no doubt

By Smear87 (Smear87) on Thursday, August 26, 2004 - 12:46 pm: Edit

yeah thats the plan! i'm applying wharton ED because its my number one choice, but stern is a very very close second
