Deloitte. If they have a lower acceptance rate than Harvard, you must be the best of the best if you work for them.

Deloitte is going to be viewed slightly better. Jokes aside about them being pretentious, they tend to be viewed as a more prestigious firm to work at than ACN. But the advantage is minuscule- don’t let it be the deciding factor for where you choose to work.

IBM1: You maybe right if we were talking MBAs in general but we are talking about Top MBAs here. U of Wisconsin(D) maybe better than U of Iowa(A) but who cares about them when there are tons of HYPs(MBB, google...) in the application pool.

What about them?

Which one looks better and why?

Can’t imagine there’s much of a difference

None

No difference.

^well put, I agree

Bottom line—it’s not worth agonizing over. Go with the firm that’s a better fit for you. Your role/performance/mental health will matter more

Deloitte. You screwed. Make a time machine

Deloitte. Especially coming from a strategy group there.

I’ve found out he’s dating someone so I’m happy for him, however, I’m disappointed he’s let this get between our friendship. Is there anyway to bring it up to him that I miss our friendship and if he’s seeing someone I’d of course be respectful so this shouldn’t put a wedge in our friendship?

Controversial opinion… I’m jealous of the covid-classes were forced to do their MBA’s online. I have no desire to do an MBA in person, but I also have no desire for people to look down on me because I got an online degree which isn’t “prestigious enough” for some people 🥲🙄
