booth ($) vs stern ($$$$)

cross-posting from Reddit w/ a few more details

Trying to decide between booth and stern. I got a full ride & forte fellowship at stern, and a 30k per year scholarship at booth

I currently live in nyc, and I absolutely love the city. Honestly, my preference would be to stay in NYC (and would like to be here post-MBA)

Notes:

Can't decide. 100% tuition at Anderson vs. 25% tuition at Ross. Shooting for MBB, and given I already live in LA, would like to have the option to recruit elsewhere e.g., nyc. At Anderson, I would have freedom to take more risks / explore more options given the scholarship, but I truly believe that I would Excel personally/professionally at Ross.

Notes:

Hi all, I am actually very torn between Stern and Fuqua right now. Both are great programs, and I am currently interested in working in healthcare, which Fuqua is known for. However, I don't want to discount Stern's amazing network and program. Any advice on which I should choose?

Notes:

Really tough choice, was very impressed by Darden and Emory to some extent as well. My short term career goals shifted from consulting to IB during the admissions process and Stern's strength in IB and reach in the Northeast makes it the most sensible choice for me.

Want a tight knit program focused on experiential learning. +Haas: Ultimately know I want to end up West Coast. Partner has remote job but would take ~10% paycut relocating to Boston. +Sloan: Been on West Coast for past two decades and want to try out new place. Program seems better for network given size and HBS even if alum are largely east coast

Notes:

Want a tight-knit program with good placement in Tech and VC. Know for sure I want to end up on West Coast. My partner has a fully remote job, though a relocation to Cambridge comes with a ~10% pay cut.

However, I also want to try out a new place for 2 years and reduce 'what-ifs' in my life. West coast program/alumni base worth it?

Notes:

30 y/o, male, URM. Moving to B-school with my wife & 5 y/o. Born and raised in Southern California. My reach was Haas, target was UCLA, and safety was Marshall. Haas was my dream school starting this process, but the full ride from Marshall is making this harder.

Loans would be $2300/month vs $700/month for Marshall for 10 years.

Notes:

International applicant. Management consultant (not sponsored) looking to go back into consulting, targeting MBB. Location agnostic. Booth is M7 so I'm swaying towards Booth with no $ but the $100k from Fuqua is tempting. Is a Booth MBA worth me forgoing the $100k worth of Fuqua scholarship?

Torned between Ross and Tuck. Had a great time interacting with students, AOs and alumni and really love the community strength of both schools. Career-wise it seems Tuck has a stronger finance placement but the money from Ross is hard to reject... Still waiting for the scholarship negotiation result from Tuck.

Notes:

Tuck has been my top choice given the great community there, though I am hoping to move there with my partner and she is not so thrilled on the idea of Hanover. I like Duke’s strength in healthcare and community as well. Ross is also a front runner with big network, lots of healthcare opportunities, and cool location. Deciding between these three.

Notes:

Seeking advice before making my decision! International with 5 years of experience in marketing & recruitment, looking to pivot to consulting (human capital focus). My main aim is to break into the consulting industry and work in the US after my MBA, so I'm pretty open in terms of work location and company size. (cont. in comments)
