    Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Wharton, Columbia, Dartmouth, UChicago, MIT, Michigan

    Most of these schools dont even have undergrad business programs.

    For schools w/ugrad business:
    Wharton, MIT, Michigan, NYU, UVA, Berkeley, Indiana (IB workshop), UTexas (BHP). After that your odds decline significantly and none could really be considered a "feeder school."

    so going to UNC kinda screws me over?
  • gomez95gomez95 Registered User Posts: 646 Member
    Theres more to finance than Wallstreet. There will be recruitment opportunites at UNC but only a low% of those students will be admitted to the top companies as compared to these 10. So if you are at the top of your class or in that region, you may have a shot.

    My opinion:

    Best: HYPSM, Wharton, Columbia
    Next Best: the rest of the ivies, Stern, Ross, UVa

    how does Brown place in terms of feeder schools? compared to say, Dartmouth?

    thnx.

    Brown is very good. As good as Dartmouth. Columbia is on par with these two (its not better).

    You guys are missing Duke. It has as good if not better recruiting that a few schools on your list.

    what about just ut mccombs i don't kno y its always has to be about bhp even though its really prestigious, but mccombs is also really good. numb 6 finance and 1 in accounting. what do u think one's chances would be coming out of mccombs with 3.85+ gpa with major in finance and minor in accounting to land ibanking position?

    Yes, Duke is indeed very good. The OP only asked for top-10 so I didn't include it, but it is definently top-notch.

    Michigan's entire BBA program got 9 offers to Goldman. Dukies got 15 there with a proportionally smaller number of kids vying for those positions (it has no undergrad B school and econ isn't the most popular major either).

    This is what the usual breakdown is: http://www.ibankingoasis.com/node/5768
    (And that list is legit as a friend of mine is at the BB whose breakdown is posted there).

    To the OP: there are no top 10. Don't try to create such meticulous rankings it makes you look like a bunch of indian parents (I am indian I can make fun of myself :)). You have a bunch of schools that will give you a shot at getting into IBD. Go there and then do your best in interviews.

    agreed with the bro above me
  • redhare317redhare317 Registered User Posts: 1,449 Senior Member
    Yep, Duke and other schools like Northwestern are good, too. I forgot about those. I think Columbia has proportionally higher numbers going into IB compared to other non-HYPW ivies. If anything, I would say location is an advantage of Columbia.
  • aquamarineeaquamarinee Registered User Posts: 3,028 Senior Member
    Really? UChicago? Wow. Are they recruited to the same extent as Wharton and Columbia? I always thought that they were more or less below them... Not top 10 though. Hmm.
  • harvardman1988harvardman1988 - Posts: 345 Member
    HYPSM, Columbia, Wharton

    then Cornell, U chicago

    then rest of ivies, NYU, Mich, UVA

    "Brown is very good. As good as Dartmouth. Columbia is on par with these two (its not better)."

    Hmm.. seems like sheer location might give Columbia a *slight* leg up?
  • TheMK99TheMK99 Registered User Posts: 1,019 Member
    Well mj recruiters would rather go 20 mins to Columbia than 6 hours to hillbillyland Dartmouth and Brown. Your right that Columbia is better.
