How good is Dartmouth for Finance job placement?
I am researching colleges for next year, and at first glance, Dartmouth would not be a place I want to go. (60% of students in Greek Life, daily partying, kinda dull campus). However, it is known for placing a ton of kids into finance and consulting jobs, which is where I hope to go. How pre-professional is it? Does it have many resources for actually helping kids get into a job or is it just a result of who they accept? Will it give me an upper hand over any other school of equal level (Cornell, Brown, UChicago, Northwestern, many others)? And also, I want to take classes that will prepare me for these careers. For that reason, should I consider Dartmouth in spite of the negative aspects of it? I mean.... the people who go to Dartmouth aren't all people who party, join frats, or do outdoor activities, right? Also, does anyone agree with me that Dartmouth's campus is not impressive?7 replies
