Hi Guys,

Trying to make a decision between Darden and Fuqua. My post MBA goal is management consulting, my past experience has been in manufacturing/operations. I have family in the Southern California region and was hoping to move there after my MBA, working for a consulting firm or a general management position.

I didn't get any scholarship at either of the two places so cost s about the same. Visited both schools, loved them both. Having a really hard time deciding. I would appreciate any input or feedback.

Thanks


As far as I know, Darden has a higher percentage of post-MBA consulting than that of Fuqua. Both schools attract all 3 top MC firms (M/B/B), but I think Bain might be at a higher representation at Darden and McKinsey might be higher at Fuqua. Honestly, the caliber of these two schools are really similar and I don't think you'll go wrong with either. As for me, it's going to be biased because I felt a better connection with Darden than I did with Fuqua. Sometimes it's that 'gut' feeling that simply just push you over to one side or another.

Anyone have access to the Recommendation questions?

I wanted to get them ahead of time to my recommenders, but the website doesn't post them, and the application isn't even up yet..

That's great! Probably we will meet each other there :)

I'm also trying to figure out how to get there. Well I have booked my flights and hotel, but I have never been in Virginia, so I guess I will have to play by ear and navigate around.

Hey Guys,

Count me IN. Darden certainly tops my list in R1. After meeting Sara in one of her public events and after coming to know about the case study structure in detail, I am sure Darden would fit me well.

Right now working on my essays, any useful inputs would be really helpful. :-D :P :)

Regards,
Kalyan

I will be staying at Courtyard Marriott. I thought of staying at the campus hotel initially, but I wanted to have a feel of life in Charlottesville outside campus as well. I will be in Charlottesville for 3 days, so I hope to do some sight-seeing around.

Do let me know if you will be visiting Darden during the same period ya!

Any other GMAT clubbers out there thinking of visiting Darden?

Does anyone have any idea what questions our recommenders are going to be asked? Or any advice on how to help prepare our recommenders?

Also, is anyone claiming instate residency? If so, have you gotten the residency form working? I get a broken link.

I'm in Charlottesville, VA, let me know if you want to meet up!
