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?

Notes:

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)

Notes:

Accepted to part-time programs. Relocating to the Bay Area post-MBA. Want to pivot to a strategy/operations role preferably in tech or finance but also interested in exploring other industries. Really like both schools after visiting and talking to students and am unsure about which to pick.

Notes:

I am torn because I could see myself in US and Singapore post MBA (US citizen, Chinese). I am in Tech now so not oppose to work in tech post-mba but also curious about consulting. The MBAi program seems great but is new. Job outcome unclear. Not sure if company sees it as a MBA degree. INSEAD seems like a proper option, but more consulting

Notes:

My goal is to end up in a role that will lead to managing a business unit directly --- most likely via an LDP but potentially consulting. Unclear of which industry I'd want to do, so trying to figure out which program will allow for good exposure. Money from Duke is tempting, but Ross feels like a better fit with the experiential learning.

Full rides to both (also W/L at Tuck and Ross, but need to put a deposit down now. From Missouri and ideal to work close to MO in future. My instinct is CM name is still good in Missouri, but minimal alumni network. Also giving up at least 2 years away from friends/family. CM higher ranked, especially in POM and Tech which are my interests. Help!
