Hi, I am an international transfer and just got admitted by Emory and Pitzer. I am considering Econ major. So here comes the problem
Emory does not have such a strong program in Econ; as far as I know, most students majoring in Economics did not have a positive attitude towards it. The b-school, good and prestigious, yet I also find it extremely hard to get a job after graduation, with only the level of undergraduate experience and the background of international students.( the visa problem). So if I go to Emory, the choices would be left with going to graduate school.
Pitzer, small size liberal arts college. Its econ is also small and not strong. But Pitzer shares the resources with colleges as Pomona, CMC etc. Students can go to take classes there. But the concern would be the drug culture. Also, I think the students at Pitzer do not really care about academics.
Correct me if I am wrong. Would be very much appreciative if there are suggestions.
