Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?

There is no pay difference if you’re coming in at the same role

No difference based on school. Differentiation only comes from level and percormance.

I don't think the compensation is different, but the number of spots available at each school might differ. I think the difference in spots available would be more apparent between the different tiers (M7, T15, T30).

BCG pays same by level across North America - a C will make the same whether they were direct promoted from associate, coming from HBS or Darden or a PhD program, etc.

For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
