Fair ATK2; GSB is claiming they won’t do it again 😂 so I was going off the facts. The top 15 ex-Harvard and Stanford offer full rides and are strong programs. At least BCG1 thought the answer was funny 💁

Following!

Lookin to do the same My thought is I’ll apply HSW and also places like booth, Sloan, haas and see who gives the most and weigh the money against the prestige of whatever HSW I get into

You would get full to near full rides from some great schools. I’ve seen people with your background get a lot of money from booth, Kellogg, Darden, Ross. Schools like Tuck, Sloan, haas don’t seem to give as much funding as the ones I mentioned.

Anywhere but Harvard and Stanford - need based

^lol

If you're a woman or someone whose mission is to elevate underrepresented minorities, you should consider Forte Fellow or the Consortium.

@ATK1, not true at the GSB; based on the recent data breach, most of aid is given to their highest priority candidates (i.e. women in PE) who easily make $350k in annual comp. Wharton, Kellogg have strong merit programs but you generally need to fit into certain diversity buckets.
