What he said.

I’m doing it, I’d rather use Mac for personal use. Not as easy as PC but doable

I got a MacBook Pro. I love it. Unless you’re going into heavy financial modeling role and plan to be practicing a lot of in-depth excel use (and no, that does not include much of anything besides IB/PE - consulting “models” that reach their limits at index/matching will work fine), you’re fine with a Mac. You’ll get a work computer when you graduate anyways from your employer, so pick a laptop YOU want. Don’t skip out on a dope laptop just because you need to use a VPN to access crystal ball for one group project. Just my two cents (also competed my BBA with a MacBook and had no regrets).
