So the drawback is that it would be much harder to get into these target schools...I can't speak to that. Though, that's not necessarily true. For finance, from what I've learned, its better to go to an "East Coast" school. The hub of the financial world, in the U.S., is New York. The closer the better for recruiting. But don't quote me on that. Also, I'd honestly say go with accounting or economics. Both are more difficult in and, accounting especially, make you a target for any firm. My university went out of it's way to make sure many of their accountants had internships or jobs. I did Finance myself.
