My sister is thinking of going to UNC, IU Kelley or Fordham (honors) for undergrad. Costs are the same for UNC and Kelley while Fordham would be 10k cheaper after aid. If she’s hoping to do consulting or IB down the line, what would be the best option for her? I’m based in NYC so she could potentially live with me if Fordham. I know UNC and Kelley are targets for IB/Consulting but Fordham’s proximity to the city + 10k cheaper is hard to beat. She’s international. Appreciate the help!
