So I am sure this has been discussed enough but I'm curious would I be an idiot to turn down NYU over Gtown ? My biggest concern with NYU is I feel like the alumni network don't look out for anyone but themselves and I have been down that road before where you get out and nobody looks out for each other and then it becomes a pointless resume line item. I def enjoyed the vibe a gtown and I think DC has a ton of govt money that I could potentially tap to raise funding however I think NYU is def more finance focused. Having said that I am finishing up the CFA this june hopefully and I'm really getting the MBA to network and look more well rounded within my own company, idk any insights about either would be great. thanks

Admitted
NYU & Gtown

Rejected
UCLA

*GRE was horrible imo, I think years exp, having my own company, and CFA def helped me compensate for actually walking into the GRE one day and taking it blind.

Hey thank you both are part time doing full time just never made sense for me personally the opportunity cost was too high and I wasn't looking to pivot so much as build my resume for an executive position if that makes any sense which is kinda why I'm leaning towards nyu bc it is clearly ranked better especially in finance but I tend to think gtown is appreciating in value and everyone there didn't seem to hate their lives haha idk I worked in NYC for 6 years and grew up in DC so I understand the personality differences as well ...

Congrats again on both admits. Stern would be the Program of choice for finance.

Georgetown is a top 20 undergrad in the country and very well known, especially in DC. However the business school is not as highly ranked.

Attending stern will allow you to mix in network with other finance professionals, most probably somewhat unhappy about their jobs :-), but still finance professionals.

However if you’re planning to go back to DC, even though nationally week, Georgetown will be a trump card in the district or around. (Note the lower case spelling please :-) )

Yeah I appreciate the insight it sucks bc the ppl at gtown seemed way more human but I guess I'm used to the self loathing narcissistic breeding ground that is sell side finance haha but who knows luckily I have until the 15th of July to pull the trigger

Using a general market theory, I can say that schools seem to attract a fairly similar types of individuals and create a fairly similar student body type. Sometimes, our impressions are different however, depending on which individuals we meet first and in what setting (this is esp true about the Admitted Students weekends). However, at the end of the day, when you settle in and 6 weeks into the program, you realize, that things are different, nobody is pretending anymore, nobody is insecure, and everyone is more or less normal themselves, you find your people - either party folks or the quieter type or the family type or the international or the sensitive, or army veterans, and so on and on. It is just the first impression that's different.
