Damn that’s a tough one . Usually I would say go for $$& but it is GSB . If you can afford it then go to GSB . If you think you’ll struggle and can’t maximize your mba than go to Sloan . Both will get you to mbb or FAANG, but I think the network and long term opportunities at GSB will be unrivalled. Many of your mba colleagues will be financially well off and/ or sponsored so money does become a big factor when networking and having fun . Being poor in a great university can destroy the experience

Never ever not go to GSB/HBS. 150k is irrelevant over a 30-year career, and there’s a crevasse between GSB and Sloan in opportunities, market value and recognition

Depends on your long term goal, if you want to pivot to finance in long term, then it’s GSB

I would say GSB too. Also, you go OP! What’s your story?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
