Re: Babson vs. Northeastern vs. UConn [#permalink]

In the latest US news ranking:
So in other words, no difference ranking wise, so at the point you need to decide which school is the best fit, I wouldn't put any out in front of any other...
With babson, it seems that you need to have an entrepreneurial mindset going in, I think fit is a HUGE part of picking that program. If the plan is to work in boston post grad, I'd go for Babson or Northeastern...
Northeastern's students are young. Average age is 25, also almost 50% of their students have a business undergrad... which leads me to believe there are many students right out of school. That's a huge turnoff for me personally, BUT it may not be for you. Also, since their students have less experience, they make less out of the gate.
Also, UConn and Northeastern's class sizes are small, around 50 or 60. (I don't know much about UConn)
I'd say babson's network is a bit stronger too. I don't know how any rank on you're specific goals though. I'd say you should reach out to the schools.
