This is a total repeat of a poll I did some months back, but I think we all may have a more focused idea of where we'll end up now that we've done more research etc...

Also I'm adding more options, last time the highest option was just 200+ and over 30% of people voted for that option.

Err, yeah, of course I've done lots of research!

I have no idea, Johnny. Why don't you go ahead and tell us where you are going (Stern or Boston U) instead of procrastinating and making polls. (in case you plan on getting offended, my post is a joke).

Cheers. L.

PS: now, seriously, where ya going?

Don't worry Lepium, I'm pretty hard to offend, and you're right, I have been procrastinating! I'm going to figure it out this week, I swear!

With the kind of career path that I intend to go into, I would be ok with 150K after 3 years. Anything more would be a bonus. Ofcourse I've planned in such a way that I won't have to worry much about student loans.

JohnnyX9, waiting eagerly to see where you go. But looking at your recent posts, it seems that you might end up at Stern.

Those are the IBers/IMers/PE/HF (which make about 20%-30% of every class)...

Lepium and Econgirl - Thanks! I can't imagine I'll ever think, "What if I had gone to BU?" whereas if I had gone to BU I'm sure there would be times where I would think "What if I had gone to Stern?"

Thanks. I'd like to think that that's what the view from my dorm will look like, but I think my view will actually be more like this:

Thanks!

I actually just Google-searched for the NYU logo and a picture of the Manhattan skyline. I don't know anything about Photoshop or applications like that, so I just used Microsoft paint to drop one image on top of the other.

That's awesome. Studying in Greenwich village with Wall St. just a short ride away can't be beat.

Those that can tough it out should be making well in excess of \$350k by then. And of course, PE/HF/VCers should be making even more even sooner. It will definitely depend on how the economy holds up though.

Yeah it will be great to explore NY as a student. Seems like Stern has some pretty great events lined up.
