Which school?

<p>I'm applying next year, but I'm not sure as to which school to apply to. I'm interested in Stern, but I feel Stern might be a little too competitive for me to get in. But at the same time, I'm also interested in hospitality. Would Gallatin be my choice where I can take classes from both these areas of study? Gallatin admission process seems much less selective and competitive than Stern's also, which is a plus.</p>

<p>If you are looking for general business courses then I am pretty sure Gallatin offers them. Some of the sample concentrations on their website include marketing, entrepeneurship, social responsibility in business, and international business. If you are indeed interested in hospitality and not confident in your application to Stern then I think Gallatin will meet your needs.</p>

<p>When you say taking classes from both areas of study I am not completely sure what you mean. You will probably take a few Stern classes but your options will be limited. If you were to apply to Stern would you still have hospitality as a goal? The only majors that would be related to that are marketing and management.</p>

<p>Unless you're 100% set on investment banking/finance, you'll probably want to be in CAS /Gallatin. Marginally easier to get into, students are as smart as Sternies but don't have the cutthroat drive. And as AoDay said, you have access to business courses through CAS/Gallatin.</p>

<p>So I would be better off at Stern if I were set on finance/banking? My interest in business is more towards management and marketing rather than finances. </p>

<p>@AoDay By both areas of study I mean that at Gallatin, would I be able to take classes in business and hospitality?</p>

<p>I feel like your situation is leaning more towards Gallatin. Marketing is in one of their sample concentration lists, so I think you could do that and create a hospitality focus or a general business administration type of thing. What are your stats? if you don't mind me asking.</p>

<p>If you're interested in Hospitality, just apply to the major in SCPS. It's basically business, just specialized in hospitality and hotel management. Gallatin is more for like artsy types and all their courses are pretty writing heavy</p>

<p>If you're not set on Finance, you're probably better off in Gallatin. Stern Finance is tops. And while everything else in Stern (marketing, management, etc.) is fine, I think you'd be happier in Gallatin.</p>

<p>"Gallatin is more for like artsy types and all their courses are pretty writing heavy."</p>

<p>I know plenty of "normal" people in Gallatin. They're best described as free-thinkers and independent. Its admissions standards are very, very different from Stern's. I think there's a more self-selecting admissions process in Gallatin.</p>

<p>Totally forgot about SCPS but bimachris is right. You could major in hotel and tourism management although I've never really heard anything about SCPS so I am not sure how competitive it is in relation to Gallatin. I have met a few business oriented majors at Gallatin though.</p>

<p>At Gallatin, would you take classes at Stern and SCPS or does Gallatin offer hospitality/business classes at Gallatin?</p>

<p>I'd rather not apply to SCPS because I've read somewhere that you can't transfer to Stern. If I do end up deciding that I want to transfer sometime into the semester, I wouldn't be able to.</p>

<p>@AoDay My stats are pretty average. 2100 SAT, 3.8 weighted GPA, SAT II and ACT scores to come. Extracurricular is nothing extraordinary, pretty average as well. Stern would be quite hard for me to get in with my stats, so that's why I am considering Gallatin to see what they offer.</p>

<p>You'd take them at Stern and SCPS because the classes offered by Gallatin are MOSTLY their own core + their own writing/cultural theory classes. That's the whole point of Gallatin.</p>

<p>Do Gallatin's core classes vary much differently than Stern/CAS, or are they quite similar?</p>
