From the Wall Street Journal/Harris interactive survey of corporate recruiters on business schools. UNC's Kenan-Flagler is nationally ranked #8 (moved up from #9 in this same survey, 2005). Cornell is ranked #16 in this survey.
(Fordham is not listed in the top 20 on this survey.)
"This ranking is based on how recruiters rated each school on 21 attri-
butes, their future plans to recruit at the school, and the number of
survey respondents who said they had recruited recently at the school.
These schools enjoy a national reputation and tend to draw recruiters
from many of the same companies, usually large national and multina-
tional firms that pay high starting salaries."
So it appears the 2nd poster doesn't know much about what recruiters are thinking.
I know nothing about Cornell, but UNC and Kenan-Flagler are both excellent, and Chapel Hill is a great place to live (great town; great weather; near Research Triangle Park). I do think that UNC is terrific academically, and also is a great all around "college experience." http://www.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/New...cfm?id=3107%20
