ive been checking out a lot of the posts on this board and i was wondering something. from what everyone has said, its starting to seem as though if youre not in the top schools for either economics in the small colleges, or business in the top universities, youre not going to get any recruitemnt or job placement thats worth anything. i see all the time people saying unless youre in stern, ross, wharton etc or unergrad econmic major at the ivy's and the like, you cant make it into investment banking, or other higher level business careers. i just wanted to know if everyone really believes this, and if its really impossible to make it in higher level business careers/master degree programs not graduating from those TOP, TOP tier business/economic schools? what would someone from the second tier (my case UMD, but also places like Umiami, PSU, BU etc) do if they wanted that kind of career?
