BYU / SMU / Georgetown

Hi everyone, nice to have such a great discussion platform here. Finally I got 3 offers on hand and it is the struggling time.SMU offers very good scholarship while BYU's tuition is not high. Georgetown is expensive for living and tuition.

I aim to explore my leadership and start my career in corporate finance, commercial banking, or IT consulting after graduation as I had 4 years working experience in a commercial bank as a management trainee. Just not sure where I could be easier to secure a job in the U.S. for an international student.

I think that Georgetown is probably the best choice, generically, since it's the only school here ranked by the FT.

Relatively few BYU grads go into finance or consulting, so I would only really consider this school if it had good relationships with firms that you were specifically interested in.

SMU Cox is interesting for some applicants, personally I would consider it as inferior to Georgetown, but it does have good placements in the areas you are looking at. It took a huge hit in this year's Businessweek rankings, but I'm not entirely sure why. Maybe it's recruiting more international students who go back to their home countries after graduation?
