No one trumps Kellogg's culture. Two years after I graduated there's still 30-40 classmates I talk to on a weekly basis. I had an awesome undergrad experience and partied 9 years in NYC before business school, but nothing compares to how great Kellogg was.

@PwC1 I think Kellogg has a wider variety of healthcare related courses and options than Fuqua. And Kellogg has the M7 reputation on top of that. They've both got a lot of experimental learning options and opportunities to actually learn interactively though, so you really can't go wrong. But if it's going to be similar, why not go with the program that opens more doors? In my opinion, that program is Kellogg.

Booth gets you the same exact jobs as Kellogg, Sloan, and tuck, but a considerably worse social experience. Don't know why anybody wants to go there.

How is this even a comparison? Kellogg is the only M7 school here.

Kellogg almost hands down. Exception for Fuqua is you want a career in healthcare or the mid-Atlantic region. Ross is an easy 3rd in this comparison.
