Application Year: 2017
Post-MBA Career: Finance
Notes: Surely this has been litigated heavily before, but for career in IM + curriculum+ overall-prestige + recruiting, which one to choose? Visited both admit student events and unable to choose based on gut-feel. I think CBS students were probably a bit more fun, but only marginally

Enrolled: Undecided

Post-MBA Career: Marketing
GMAT/GRE: 750 GPA: 3.7
Location: New York
Notes: In New York, prepping for Stern when I get a call that there is a seat open at Kellogg. I'm torn because Kellogg is such a good school (especially marketing/CPG) but I know we want to end up in NYC after, so is the gap still that large? Plus my wife would most likely be staying behind in NYC. Is the gap large enough to make the move?

Notes: 1 year MBA and Oxford brand is appealing. Round 4 acceptance. Rumor is they got filled early this year and took virtually nobody afterwards. Can anyone confirm? Thanks. I am very fortunate in hindsight.
