Please help me. I need to choose between Wharton and [insert some random T10]. My post-MBA goal is [generic stuff], and I value brand name, big alum network, proximity to NYC, social vibe, and a flexible workload. Hardest decision because I definitely didn’t do any research during application and just applied randomly

Wharton…

likefunnysmart

You forgot the $ amount part 😂

Depends on the random T10…
Are we talking about H/S? These over Wharton - any day.

Or other M7s? Comes down to Wharton and CBS for NYU proximity, even than its Wharton.

Or non-M7 T10? (Haas/tuck/som/nyu/ross/darden/fuqua)? Added more than 3 - since #9-10 spot is always up in the air with these schools.
Comes down to Wharton and NYU for IB. Wharton all the way - unless NYU offers full ride.
Wharton and Tuck for Consulting.

I would take W with $$$ over H/S

Dont forget the students/alums of the other school going on about how they should rule out W because no one answered them on LinkedIn when they were still applicants without GMAT scores…

I am one of those people who posted a similar stuff and I laughed a lot at this now. I don’t think it is the problem of not doing research. Everyone did. I think the issue is that it is such a big deal that will change your entire life (at least we feel like this now). Therefore, it is nice to get other perspectives, maybe to find strength against our own doubts and insecurities, and maybe for something else. Yet again, the post made my day 😂

Also someone who posted something similar and LOL’ed. I have, however, done an excessive amount of research and visited each admit weekend, but definitely value the opinions of others. I’ve gotten multiple helpful DMs so 🤷‍♂️

What is the value proposition of an MBA if you have pre-MBA MBB experience? It seems like all the desirable post-MBA exits like PE and tech recruit just as much if not more from MBB than from top MBA programs. And if you wanted networking and a break from work there are ways to do so that are cheaper than a few hundred thousand dollars if you factor in opportunity cost. What other reasons are there to do a MBA if you’re coming from that background?
