I think you need to realize that a school may have a flexible curriculum but that doesnt mean you only take one prescribed course and are free to take 20 electives on anything you want. You just have options for what you want to fulfill your microecon requirement. Some schools like Tuck have basically two full semesters where you take specific classes required by the school.
From what I gathered, the requirements are actually important because they give everyone the well rounded base of knowledge you will need in pretty much every post-MBA career. I think seeing what schools have for electives and majors is going to be more helpful. Its areas like this where larger schools have the advantage. They have the professors, and can get enough students in classes to justify holding something that is a little more unusual.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
