HBS or bust

Yes: Booth, Wharton, HBS; Maybe: MIT, Kellogg, Berkeley. If international exposure is your game, LBS and only LBS

It's why I felt meh. I really, really wanted to like them. Current students even said that employers typically view you as a risk if you're trying to leave Cali or Tech. Either 1) you weren't good enough to get tech, or 2) you are a risk of moving back to Cali or jumping ship to a startup.

^strongly disagree, but probably because I did my MBA at Stanford. Yes it has strong tech links, but the same could be said of HBS/Wharton for finance. And as far as industries go, I am way, way less worried about tech than I am about the alternative investments industry.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Stanford has the highest % of grads going to PE/VC (higher than HBS and Wharton). This is based on the latest employment stats for each for school

How about Stanford, GS?

I visited Stanford and felt "meh" about the whole school. It's still reeling from the dean's awkward departure. It's also extremely married to tech, so if tech ever goes down, so will Stanford. The campus was mind blowing tho.

That last point is enough to sell me....

Kellogg is a really good school. Evanston is awesome as well- close enough to Chicago.

Absofuckinglutely yes if your goal is to actually learn something. If you're going for an undergrad do-over, you should rethink your life.

Booth or Wharton for Finance/Economics, MIT quant/tech, Stanford for tech / PE / VC, Kellogg only for marketing or consulting, HBS for Mgmt. Sound right?

You can totally go to Kellogg for things other than marketing / consulting. Those are probably the most annoying paths at Kellogg
