Booth PT vs Haas PT [#permalink] New post 08 Sep 2012, 10:12
Folks,

I'm a silicon valley native and i'm pretty certain on staying here for the rest of my life. I work in software and I have 7 years of work experience with a 750 gmat q49v44. I'm a 30 year old asian male.

i think i have a much better shot at schools like haas PT and UCLA PT, but there's a small chance I could try for Booth.

-i would like to climb up at my current company and either get into the director level in engineering or try something new and go into product management (strategy)
-long term goal would be to start my own software business (in silicon valley CA)

Question is:

Booth has a fantastic reputation, but would that reputation be worth the tradeoff of having chicago based companies at the hiring events? chicago based networks?

haas is a great school, but pales in comparison to booth especially since the degree you get at the end will be identical to the full time degere.

any suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

If you want to reside in Silicon Valley then it seems to make much more sense to go to Haas.

I'm a little confused by this comment. You're correct in that Booth is ranked a little higher than Haas for the full-time program, however Haas has a higher rank than Booth for the part-time program based on US News and Report's rankings (I personally think Kellogg, Haas, and Booth are all awash in terms of ranking for the part-time program). To clarify any confusion, Haas and Booth both award the same degree as their respective full-time programs.

Based on your profile and long-term plans of being an entrepreneur in the Bay Area, it may make more sense for you to apply to Haas or the Wharton Exec. program. A little aside, I have quite a few classmates that fly in from LA, Seattle, and Portland. Between the flights, group projects, and long hours studying during the first year, I would highly recommend you relocate to where you plan on attending in order to get the most out of the program (many of my classmates at Haas did exactly this due to the difficulty of balancing work, school, and personal affairs). The students who travel each week definitely have it harder than most.

Good luck with your apps, I have a feeling you'll be happy at whichever program you ultimately end up attending.

Correct me if I am wrong but PT should be in a location close to you while you work in the day and goto classes at night. Can you do PT from Silicon valley to Chicago without switching jobs?
