What do you want to get from an MBA? Tbh the difference among those 3 are marginal unless you are gunning for a super niche market - overall, not worth it waiting another yr..

Can you defer Wharton a year? If you’re guaranteed a spot at Wharton next year, then wait it out (if you’re dead set on HBS/Stanford). If not, definitely don’t do that cause worst case scenario is that you don’t get accepted to all three next year. If it was me, I would do Wharton this year

I’ve been working in the HR space and am interested in pursuing an MBA to transition into Human Capital consulting/ Change management/ Talent technology and analytics.

Thanks!
