Goals:
ST: Go abroad via one of the MBB Consulting firms
LT: Grow at MBB- partner track

All that is important to me is to land at MBB- which one to choose!?

Duke: Named scholarship- full tuition
UCLA: Fellowship- 75%
Booth: 10K merit

Thoughts?

I would co-sign the call to Duke. Booth is a great school and I would've voted for Booth without the full ride at Fuqua (also a named scholarship which boosts the resume). MBB firms recruit at Duke as well but you should probably confirm that they will recruit for international offices out of Fuqua as well (from my understanding this should not be a problem).

Congratulations for getting into 3 great schools and all with fellowships!

With a named fellowship you can probably nab one of the MBB positions, but you do run the risk of it being in a shitty office (e.g. Atlanta).

Kellogg was my top choice (I also want to do MBB), but if Duke gave me a full scholarship, I'd probably have gone to Duke.

I even read the argument somewhere around here that it might be easier to be stellar at a lower ranked school, which might help one to get the best offers there. Well, I guess nobody can really tell what advantage one would have at one school over the other, as nobody did the MBA at both schools....

Re Atlanta office - there's definitely no shame in working for the Atlanta office vs. the more "prestigious" NYC/SF offices at MBB. Lots of big name partners are going to places like, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami and Jacksonville (in FL so they can live in west palm or ponte vedra) and pay small state income taxes. I was at a top 5, though not MBB, MC firm in the NYC office and worked on high profile projects with tons of consultants flying up from Atlanta. The reality of being a consultant is that you're travelling mon-thurs so you're rarely in the city in which you live. A lot of the NYC/SF consultants I worked with kind of lamented paying NYC/SF rents when they were doing a project in Chicago or Dallas. Plus if you're at a Duke, the chances of getting into the Atlanta office may be slightly higher than if you're trying to get into the NYC office which is flooded with HBS/CBS MBAs. Just a thought, seems like you've got no bad options though, congrats!

Re: Duke ($) v Booth ($) v UCLA ($$) [#permalink] ### Show Tags 07 Apr 2014, 15:02 1 This post received KUDOS If you were going into PE/VC, I would have said Booth, but in this situation, you should save 110k and pick Fuqua. And, you can recruit for international offices from Fuqua. For Class of 2014, people went to Bain's London, Mexico City and Seoul offices. Source: http://www.joinbain.com/apply-to-bain/b ... ool_id=213 And, you can get a job at any domestic office. For BCG, 4 students went to DC, 3 went to Chicago and 1 went to NJ. Source: http://www.bcg.com/join_bcg/oncampus/fu ... rsOnCampus I was at BDW and heard that recruiting was much better for class of 2015. We will see when the numbers come out. _________________ Duke MBA Class of 2016 Intern Joined: 05 Feb 2014 Posts: 20 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 1 [1] , given: 3 Re: Duke ($$$$) v Booth () v UCLA ($$$) [#permalink] ### Show Tags 07 Apr 2014, 21:55 1 This post received KUDOS I vote Booth Re: Duke ($) v Booth ($) v UCLA ($$) [#permalink] 07 Apr 2014, 21:55 Similar topics Replies Last post Similar Topics: 1 Kellogg v Booth PT 4 29 Jun 2015, 12:10 Cornell v.
