Are Dartmouth, Brown and LACs powerhouses?

Just wondering if Dartmouth, Brown, and top LACs (Williams, Amherst) are feeder schools for top IB positions. I've heard conflicting arguments: that banks love these liberal-artsy schools, and that they don't. Particularly for Dartmouth, my uncle told me it used to be a major player on the Street but isn't anymore. Opinions?

    @morrismm Of course, and I'm sure all these aforementioned schools are target schools. But I've heard conflicting reports about these elite schools that are very liberal arts based. I've heard that employers love people from the liberal-artsy Ivies (Dartmouth/Brown) and the top LACs, as well as that people from these schools often don't get IB jobs due to lack of practical experience and a stigma of being too idealistic.
