I see a lot talk on MBA Reddit about NYC MBB offices as the most difficult offices to land. Is there actually a higher level of difficulty to land NYC? Or is it a bunch of unknowledgeable people spreading bs?

- yes: interest in NYC/SF/BOS is extremely high, meaning you’re competing against a bunch of qualified candidates
- no: these offices are also the largest and have the most spots, so they are able to absorb more candidates
- maybe: nobody really knows besides the recruiting teams, and it’s impossible to draw a conclusion without the full picture

The bar is the same across the company. I wouldn’t try to select a specific office location based on perceived “easiness” of getting in.

Would you also say to choose the best school + scholarship vs location of the school

Same bar just extra intense people in the northeast
