Darden vs Cornell [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2006, 09:13
Hey Folks,

First, I want to thank all those on this board with the help they provided during my GMAT preparation back in October and November! Everyone was very helpful in answering questions, explaining concepts, and posting excellent feedback.

I am in at Darden and at Cornell and now I have to make a decision between the two. Since both admit weekends occur at the same time, I would like to solicit the forums thoughts on this situation.

I'm not quite sure what I want to do post-MBA. I am stuck between banking, corporate finance and mgmt consulting. Long-term, I may return to India.

Cornell
Pros: Ivy-league brand recognition (esp in Asia), immersion learning, small community
Cons: Location (and how it affects recruiting)

Darden: Career prospects in mgmt consulting, facilities
Cons: Boot-Camp (I want to learn, but not 24/7). Not sure what value it carries outside the US.

Can anyone provide any insight or your own personal thoughts?

Thanks!!

For INTL, I agree with Cornell's namebrand. I don't think UVA would carry its domestic prestige into the international world.

I am leaning toward Cornell.

They are both Elite Cluster schools so they start out pretty even on the prestige front.

Ithaca is rather remote, but then again UVA isn't exactly in the middle of a metropolis either.

Cornell seems to have stronger name recognition outside the US and seems to have better placements internationally as well.

Thanks all for the well wishes and advice! I am heading to Ithaca for the Destination Johnson and will finalize my decision after that. I will provide a full account of the events for the rest of the group.

As far as i know Ithaca is in NY state.. how far is it from NYC...how much time doest it take to fly down there...

I am too of the opnion that Cornell is a much better option than UVA as Cornell university in itself is very renowned apart from the bschool and the alumni base is much stronger
