Darden if you really want to get the most from your education. It will be a lot of work, but an unbelievable learning experience led by amazing faculty and peers.

Darden. And Charlottesville is incredible.

I think Darden has a better rep.... Stern may edge slightly for banking and being in nyc will make networking for niche stuff that is based there easier

What do you want to do afterwards? Banking or brand marketing in NYC? Probably Stern. Most other things including consulting? Definitely Darden.

NYC or Charlottesville? Both amazing places. In both cases the city very much will influence your experience - and they’re very different obviously!

Thanks all! Leaning towards Stern because I want to be in NYC post b-school. Just want to make sure I’m not making a mistake by picking Stern although these do look very much like peer schools

So seriously what is the story behind “Deloitte being harder to get into than Harvard”? Where did that saying come from? Is it really true? Or is it one big joke? My friend from MBA school got tipsy and she went on and on about it this past weekend.

@MBBs - why and how often are new consultants (mba level) typically managed out ? Is it really performance or lack of EQ? These people are smart so it seems a bit odd. Insightful comments appreciated
