I got an interview at Wharton but really want to go to Kellogg or Tuck. Does getting an interview at Wharton (and having decent Kellogg/Tuck interviews) indicate that I have a strong chance of getting in? Hoping for some $$ also!

Why don’t you give your interview invite to me?

OP, I’m curious why you’d pick Tuck over Wharton. Can you please elaborate? Thanks!

3 reasons: (i) Strong alumni network (ii) Incredibly tight knit school (class size plays a role) and (iii) genuinely thoughtful about the whole application process - feels like they know who they are and know who they want (and all the people who i have spoken to about the school have fantastic things to say). That being said, I am aware that the same career opportunities at Wharton wouldn't be there at Tuck but willing to take a chance as I come from MBB

Sounds perfect, thanks for the insights! I’m hoping to pivot to MBB or social impact. Got Wharton interview but wondering if I really want Tuck tbh

You’re totally right. I spoke with a few Tuckies at Bain/BCG as well. I’ve been really enjoying their community and outreach. Appreciate it!

A wonderful friend recommended me to a recruiter, when the recruiter was looking to place a creative. This role is at a small agency, I’m going to be paired with a Sr. Copywriter. They’re looking for a conceptual thinker and brilliant designer, no pressure. I have some internships and some freelance under my belt since graduating portfolio school, and a current laptop that’s running on fumes ha. I’m intimidated, cautious, yet super grateful to finally hear from someone. Any words of wisdom?

I work for a startup and recently a headhunter working with another company reached out about a role. Turns out, this company is invested in my current startup and is also an advisor to my current company.

Would they "warn" my ceo about the fact that I applied?
