Emory(CAS) vs. BC (CSOM) Transfer

<p>Hi, I am a sophomore transfer and got into Emory for econ major and Boston College for finance major.</p>

<p>I am an international student from Korea, and If I choose Emory, my only reason would be to go to Goizueta.</p>

<p>I heard that the admission is extremely difficult especially for international students, and my GPA at my current school isn't too good since i have a "C" on one of my econ classes.</p>

<p>My career goal is to either get into a Big 4 accounting firms or financial service companies, so I am thinking about Accounting/Finance double major.</p>

<p>I know people say that Emory has more prestige and all that (that US NEWS ranking stuff), but just looking at my future career, which school would support me better? Can you reapply to Goizueta if you get denied once? </p>

<p>I know both are great b-schools, but which school is better in terms of Accounting and Finance programs? I know businessweek ranked CSOM #6 and Goizueta #7, but that doesn't say much to me.</p>

<p>Please share your views, all responses are much appreciated!</p>

<p>I think that their decision to admit you would be principally based on your performance at Emory. You should aim for about a 3.5 to be competitive, and you’ll need to complete any prerequisites you haven’t finished yet. You can reapply if you’re denied to Goizueta, but you should consider your performance at your current school to see if attending Emory makes sense for you. I don’t know what school is better in accounting or finance, but I would assume the difference is negligible for your employment prospects. </p>

<p>You should also consider that Boston College is in an area with a lot of good schools, while in Atlanta you’d largely be competing for internships and other opportunities with those from Emory and Tech.</p>
