CAS or Stern?

<p>Does anyone have any opinions on whether i would be a better fit for stern or cas? My friends have told me cas is easier to get into but harder to find a job when you get out. Are my stats good enough to apply to stern and risk the chance of not getting into nyu at all?</p>

<p>I can't think of anything that you are lacking as far as statistics go. Good luck :)</p>

<p>Decide if you want your undergraduate curriculum to be focused on business entirely, or something else?</p>

<p>Stern or CAS, with your work ethic you'll be successful regardless.</p>

<p>Don't decide which school to apply to based on risk of getting into that school with in the college, decide what you want to do then apply to that school. W/ your stats, you should be fine, I got in and I don't have stellar stats. Your ACT might be the only weakness, I had a 33; try taking it again. Focus on your weak areas.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone! I decided to go for Stern...soooo bump for anyone who wants to chance me on stern?</p>
