And Penn State, if you're not from Pennsylvania or a hard core Joe Paterno fan, don't bother.
Now, Penn is ivy league, so if you can get in, go.
And Carnegie Mellon is one of the finest private universities in the country, but also one of the most expensive.
Also, plain and simply, Pittsburgh's a lousy city. No offense to Pittsburghers, but the only thing they have going for them are those sandwhiches with fries inside them.
Ya University of Pittsburgh is basically a school I applied to just to have a safety school and to make my parents happy. They actually have a fairly decent Business program though.
Penn is probably my top choice, since the Wharton School is considered by most to be the #1 Business school in the country, but its also probably the hardest to get into as are some of the others I mentioned. Thats why Im looking for another school or two to apply to.
I've lived just outside of Pittsburgh my entire life and I really don't mind it. Carnegie Mellon is one of the top schools in Business and Engineering but some of the kids from my school who went there were some of the biggest nerds in the school, and they were pretty much the typical CMU students.
I've been looking around and Im also considering applying to Babson (thanks for the suggestions), Georgetown, Boston College. Any thoughts on those schools or any others I should consider?
