Go where the scholarship money is. But if all else equal, definitely Berkeley.

I’d say Cal 100%

I went to anderson and love LA. Also did a lot of mba internships in silicon beach. But I'd choose cal if you are 100% all in for tech given proximity to more employers

I have a post-MBA offer with Accenture Strategy and I'm seeking advice on whether I should pursue this offer, or if I should continue to recruit for MBB (which may open more doors/opportunities). I previously worked 4 years at Deloitte Consulting. Where do people from Accenture Strategy (not Accenture Management Consulting) tend to go? Is it possible to have similar opportunities as MBB firms or do you have to work harder to get MBB-type opportunities?
