Ross (80k) vs Stern (full price) I only want NYC offices for MBB/FAANG

I’d go with Ross, 80k is a lot of money and there’s no guarantee Stern can get you there. Both schools are peers in terms of brand value. I’d say you have an equal chance at both and Ross sends a lot of people to the NYC metro area.

Do you have any reasoning?

Ross. For MBB you should be able to get NYC out of Ross—WORST case is you get another office (Chicago) and then just transfer. But since they both do full OCR for all of MBB odds of getting to the company are exactly the same. Also I think Ross > Stern for tech recruiting.

Do you mind sharing your stats as i’m applying to both this round? TYIA!

If NYC is a MUST post-mba (whether it’s MBB or something else), then stern for sure. Stern to MBB NYC is still going to be very difficult though.

I know that BCG and mck also have New Jersey offices. I’m very open to those as well
