Okay so I recently got into Booth off the waitlist (so so stoked, my first choice) with no scholarship but have accepted an offer to Tuck with a 30k scholarship. Post MBA goals are MBB. Leaning hard on Booth but is there any chance they’d swing a scholarship at this point in the game?

MBB or VC? -VC is a name brand but smaller early stage investor (definitely not Sequoia/A16z; $500M assets) -Post-MBA level at both. Data science at both if it matters (data science consultant at MBB; data science expert running DD/value creation at VC) -Comp yr 1 is same, but upward trajectory at VC is way less set in stone -I find the space the VC plays in interesting but I am not dead set on staying there or VC in general. Am a little worried about "wasting" 2 yrs if I reapply to MBB anyway
