I was just accepted off the MIT waitlist. I’ve committed to NYU but want to get thoughts on if the MIT acceptance should chance my decision. I live in NYC currently and would like to be there post-MBA. Career goal is tech product management, but I’m also very interested in joining a healthtech startup

I applied in R2 to CBS, Kellogg, SOM, Haas, Stern, Anderson, KF, and McDonough. Waitlisted at McDonough, Anderson, and Stern and rejected everywhere else. Applied to Goizueta, Owen, and McCombs as safety schools in R3/4 and was waitlisted at Goizueta/Owen. I plan to remain on the waitlists in the interim but 90% chance I'll be headed to DC.

Notes:

Just got off Fuqua waitlist today. Really between LBS and Fuqua. Many pros and cons to both, I am open to staying in Europe after MBA for a while but want to come back to US at some point. I think London offers a lot of advantages compared to Durham. Seems from comparing employment reports that LBS does better at MBB and think PE is possible.

Notes:

I've already sent my deposit for Stern, but just got accepted at CBS (R2FE). I really like the vibe of the Sternies I've met, and I live much closer to Stern (not able to move). Eventually I'd like to end up on the West coast, so I am drawn to the large network of CBS, but worried the culture might not be as good of a fit as Stern. Any insights?

Notes:

Updating from previous post. Got another 5k/year from McCombs, will be enrolling there. Can't justify the 50k difference in tuition between the two. I grew up in Austin and would like to work there full time after graduation. I think it'll still give me a shot at MBB, but am open to other companies as well.

Haven't decided but leaning to CBS due to its location and more recognized brand internationally. I want to spend few years in NYC post-MBA to pursue career in finance. My long-term goal is PE but I will probably start from IB. I am also planning to come back to Asia later on. Do I make the right decision by choosing CBS?
