Report Help with college decision! in General Discussion Posted January 5, 2014 · Edited January 5, 2014 by ThatLDSKiD I got into BYU and the Cornell School of Hotel Administration. I really love Cornell and the Statler hotel. Their academics are ranked #1 in the nation for hospitality, and they have everything I want to study. I want to either go into consulting or manage mutual/hedge funds. Cornell has a fantastic alumni network, and everyone I know that goes there has high-paying job offers.BYU is also a really good school, and I'm specifically interested in there business management major with an emphasis in strategy. This is basically there program for consulting. However, I don't really know how involved the curriculum is in terms of real estate, investment banking, hedge funds, etc. Also, I don't know how BYU's alumni network compares to Cornell's. I've heard that BYU isn't a "target" recruiting school.However, even though I'm in love with Cornell, I'm really worried about picking it over BYU.I plan on serving a mission right after high school, so I'd have to defer. I'm mostly worried about whether I'll be able to find a wife at Cornell! The branch is tiny, and most of them are grad students. There are maybe 3 undergrad LDS students, and I don't even know if they are girls. And if I don't get married in college, then my selection goes wayyy down. Especially if I have a job and I'm really busy because of that, and won't have much time to date and stuff. Both schools have great campuses. Both have great academics (Cornell has the advantage) BYU is a LOT cheaper BYU has more potential wives Cornell has a better alumni network/connections (I think) Cornell I could probably get a higher paying job Cornell is Ivy LeagueLastly, I'm not focusing on social > education. I'm focusing on healthy family > lucrative career. Unless I can have both. What do you guys think?
