Hey all!

I am sure this has been a discussion topic elsewhere, so if there is a good, recent conversation already discussed, please send a link. I have been admitted to both Columbia and Booth and intend to go into investment banking (at least for a summer internship). I already work doing M&A as a consultant so am not a major career switcher.

Without having gone to both schools, it seems I like Booth's program more (and they definitely do a better job trying to recruit). The lure of NYC is strong though and feel like being at Columbia will be an advantage (at the very least cost-wise) during recruiting. I do not need to be in NY after school, but it feels like it is the best place to do banking and do not want to be disadvantaged further in my career by not doing banking in NYC so I expect to recruit there.

Thoughts and advice are greatly appreciated as I have no idea what to do and the admit student weekends are the same weekend!

Do you get any scholarship for any school? Are you an international student?

I hope those links help you

Congrats! Great job and great results!

There definitely been a few discussions - you can find them at the bottom of yours:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/columbia-no- ... fl=similar

I think Booth is traditionally the best school for finance after Wharton. I get your point about networking in NYC - i would be curious to see what that translates into in terms of offers from your key employers/banks/companies. What if they hire on campus at Booth vs. trying to network with them in New York? Both paths are feasible but one is much easier.... of course they may not be hiring on any campus.

My classmates at Booth who recruited for banking all did extremely well and everyone I know here who wanted NYC banking got an offer. There's no disadvantage being at Booth location wise as all of the major banks come to campus to recruit/interview. Seems like you're leaning Booth so I'd go with your gut here.
