Notes:

Torn between Haas, Sloan, Ross. Slight preference for west coast. Ideal post-MBA goal is tech (i.e. Haas/Sloan) or consulting. Terrified of taking on debt as international student (H1B unpredictable, recruiting way down, high interest). Should I just take the $ at Ross and enjoy my time?

Notes:

I'm disheartened. All of my top-choice schools have rejected me, except for Darden, which I'm not particularly excited about. My goal has been to begin my MBA in September, and it seems that Darden may be my only option. I'm still waiting on a decision from Stanford, but I'm not optimistic about it. HBS & Wharton have rejected me, Haas WL

Notes:

I'm pretty torn between UCLA and CMU. I had originally thought LA was my dream MBA destination. However, after visiting CMU, I felt I connected deeper with students, the faculty/staff have been incredibly helpful, and I think I would really learn a lot there. I come from tech and am really impressed with CMU's technology focus.

CBS ($$$), Haas ($$$$), Kellogg ($$) or Wharton. Moving to LA post-MBA. Wife went to CBS so I already experienced it as a “Better Half.” Option to get sponsorship from my non-MBB firm, but want to pivot to VC. Is the “brand / prestige” of Wharton for VC is worth turning down other scholarships?

Notes:

Yale vs Dartmouth? I'm sponsored from MBB firm and will return post-MBA to continue sustainability/climate focused work, maybe climate exit long-term but want to stay MBB for a while. Love Tuck's New Hampshire location and close-knit community, but no $. Yale's "business for society" focus and strong environmental academics are appealing, plus $50k
