Stanford vs Princeton economics
I'm currently trying to decide whether or not to attend Stanford or Princeton as an econ major, potential international relations minor, for undergrad. I want to eventually work on wall street in NYC after graduation. But I also have some interest in entrepreneurship, although I don't consider myself very techie, so if I did play a role in startups, it would be on the more management/marketing side. At the moment, I definitely see myself more on wall street than in a startup/tech company, although both are possibilities.
Knowing this, which school should I go to? In addition, how is Stanford's presence on the east coast in terms of finance. I know how important the alumni network is, and I'm afraid most of that network for Stanford is on the west coast. Would I be at a disadvantage going to Stanford instead of Princeton when pursuing a Wall Street career in the east?
Also, do companies like Goldman or JP Morgan in NYC have interns from Stanford over the summer? Or is that uncommon? Stanford operates on a quarter system so school finishes later than when most banking internships start. Will these companies based in NYC actually go to Stanford to recruit?
