hmmm it seems like NYU is in fact superior to Dartmouth in terms of internships--you can work throughout the year, and will be in touch with the business world more. Or does this not matter as much?
<p>That is so wrong for so many reasons.</p>
<p>Reason #1: Dartmouth is recruited more heavily than is NYU. That is, you have better -- and a wider variety of -- job prospects coming from Dartmouth than you do from NYU.</p>
<p>Reason #2: You can't do internships while also attending school. Serious finance internships may require upwards of 100 hours/week. It's impossible to attend school and participate in such an internship. </p>
<p>That NYU students get good internships during the year is the biggest and most annoying myth. Don't let them continue to use that argument.</p>
<p>Also, to turn Reason #2 in favor of Dartmouth, the D-Plan actually * improves * your chances of securing a top flight internship, as slipper1234 has pointed out.</p>
<p>I'm tired, so I'll stop -- but you get the point.</p>
