Undergrad business programs

I understand Wharton and Stern probably have the best undergrad business programs around. However, how hard are the workloads of these two schools. Students who have attended Wharton or Stern, how is the social life and stress level? Cuz seriously, I've worked my butt off in HS and want to have some fun in college. Still, I'm willing to trade in some hardwork for playtime. If a school has the philosophy of "work hard and play hard," I'll definitely embrace it, but I definitely don't want to be spenting 80 % of my time at a college's library. Anyway, I've b*tched enough. Obviously, I don't wanna go to a party school or anything like that either. So anybody have any reccomendations for me for undergrad business programs? Including or excluding Wharton and/or Stern.

    I think at Penn, in general, people work really really hard and then play really really hard.

    chanman - when it comes to the social scene you pretty much can't separate wharton form the rest of the university. Whartonites parties just as much as the college.

    you have to work hard in business school to get good job placement.

    a lot of people overlook undergrad business and can't even get interviews jr year.
