Stern or Courant to be an Actuary

<p>Stern offers an Actuarial Science major but the college recommends students who go this path to take on a second major within Stern. Courant on the other hand is the institute for mathematical sciences so students could prepare for the actuarial exams here too. </p>

<p>I'll be a junior transfer and will have to select one of these schools. How can I choose one or the other? Which will prepare me better for the exams and/or help me find the best employment opportunities upon graduation? </p>

<p>I haven't seen anything on this site about people transferring to Courant from other schools. But from what I've read Stern admissions are the most competitive and their tuition costs 10% more.</p>

<p>Courant majors:

<p>Stern. Haven't met an actuarial student from Courant yet.</p>
