Hello,

I am trying to decide to apply to two of these three schools. I have the CFA, my stats are in range for these schools. I want to do investment management, research, after school. Which of these is better than the others. All three are great, just not sure if I have time to apply to all of them.

Thanks

Nyu and Virginia imo. Virginia pulls a lot of solid banks for recruiting and Nyu is well... Nyu. I don't think Duke is quite in the same tier if you are chasing IM

In these circumstances, I think about what stories my client has and which prompts will play to his/her strengths. For example, I have a client who has a great, funny personality and he's good on camera, so I am having him apply to GT and Yale because, video essays, I feel that will set him apart. Do you have 6 interesting pictures for NYU? Do you have a good example of when your opinion evolved via discussion with others? (Darden) because my clients are finding that to be a tough nut to crack once having exhausted their criticism question stories on LOR.
Duke is a very long app however if you are GMAT challenged I think it is a good move. But it will require a fair bit of time researching Duke for the 2 page contribution essay. Hope this helps~!

I would definitely recommend Darden and NYU. They both have much better relationships with banks than Duke does.
NYU is a place you should definitely apply to!

I am tempted to write that the right answer is: Find the time to apply to all three :)
It's a tough call honestly. It's true that Darden and NYU are more hooked up with finance jobs, but Duke has the better overall name.... and there are other considerations.... meaning it is hard to give a straight answer without knowing the details of you and your applications.


Best,

I would go NYU, UVA, and then Duke in that order. I would lead with trying to get your NYU and UVA applications in (and well crafted) then time permitting see if you can pull something together for Duke
