I am deciding between Tulane, SMU, and TCU. TCU is my favorite, but it is much less known in the Northeast. I am from here and want to work here eventually. I am not sure what I want to do most likely business or possibly work in government. Will the TCU name stop me from getting jobs in New York/Boston/Philadelphia or make it substantially harder?
Recruiting has a strong regional bias, so many businesses from the NE will not travel to any of those schools. That said, you can apply to any job anywhere. Get a solid GPA and noteworthy experience while you’re in school and you’ll have the same shot from any of those schools.
NO WAY would I recommend you pay $100k more for the other two.
