dyson vs wharton
Dyson and wharton are the only two undergraduate business schools offered by the ivys. Dyson has a significantly lower admissions rate ( 3%) compared to whartons (7%), but wharton outranks Dyson is pretty much all category. Does anyone have any insights on either schools, which they prefer and why - asking from someone who would like to study business .
Currently a senior also wanting to study business. Wharton definitely has more prestige than Dyson, though Dyson may have the lower admissions rate. In addition, other state schools might be better than Dyson, for example Ross at UMich, or McIntire at UVa. If you want Ivies though, Columbia has a decent Financial Economics program which isn't true business, but it's pretty close. In addition, most of the ivies have decent econ programs that set you up for business, like Brown has the Business track, and Harvard/Yale/Princeton/Dartmouth will still take care of you and you'll get recruited with the rest of them.
I'd apply to both Wharton and Dyson (and I hope you consider some of the others), and if you get into both, I'd pick Wharton unless Dyson for some reason really calls to you.
