As far as going to Tuck is concerned, I imagine it helps if you like outdoor activities in general. There's a reason the school is often referred to as "Camp Dartmouth". It isn't the right school for me, but I wanted to put a little plug in anyway - I went to a business conference up there last year, and the faculty and the program were impressive as hell. Tuck seems really committed to its international, global focus - lots of classes and required projects center around that. And, like many of the smaller programs, the alumni base is rabidly loyal, and apparently quite approachable. I really liked the "Tuckies" I met - I found them to be a very smart, diverse, good-natured group, to the point where I was rather wistful that the program didn't suit my needs.

What do you guys think of the best of the rest?

Last I checked the Big 4 (KMPG, Deloitte, PWC, E&Y) are looking to expand their consulting arms. There are a host of other excellent firms -- Accenture, Huron, Gartner, Mercer, BearingPoint, Navigant, Archstone, Roland Berger, ZS Associates etc. -- who actively recruit outside the top 15 schools.

A resourceful Babson MBA with a 780 GMAT (+ internship + strong case interviewing + strong schmoozing) would have a more than realistic chance of getting hired by anyone of the above mentioned?

Check Babson's recruiting stats. I would say that there are going to be MC opportunities coming out of any decent school.

Yeah I think you will have a good chance to get a consulting job out of Babson, but mabe not the top 4 consulting firms. I have checked Babson's career stats and they are not really good. I think only about 70% of the class has a job at graduation :(.

Anyways, I am applying to Tuck and Ross and I have a GMAT of 710, do you guys think I would be able to get a consulting job with the likes of McKinsey with such a score coming out of these 2 schools?

I am considering re-taking the GMAT after my b-school applications are done, and the only reason for the re-take would be a career with top management consulting firm

Please advise!!!

Interesting thread...especially pelihu post at the bottom of the first page. Follow his link and check the schools. It is amazing how many times they go to the finance powerhouses but dont even list other schools.

Thanks riverripper!

I really liked the link you posted. And I think I have made a decission now :), I will follow your advise (the last post in the link you posted) and I will re-take during the summer of 2008 :).
I think I am in the worst possible situation, I have good enough score for b-school, but not good enough for McK :)) so instead of sitting around and thinking whether I should retake I should go ahead and do it and get it over with! I don't plan on studying too much, I will just review, and because I will be more relaxed the next time I take the GMAT I think I will score better.
