Good business schools near Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates- IL [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2009, 14:29
Has anyone heard of any other business schools with good placements, that are a bit nearer to Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates?

I was really keen on Kellogg business school. But it's like 1 hour drive from my place! Can't move because my hubby works in Hoffman Estates..

Thanks...

The fact that you have a top notch program about an hour away makes you much better off than most. You'll almost always have to sacrifice something to go to B School, and an hour drive doesn't sound that bad. I'd recommend still targeting Kellogg and either renting a cheap apartment near Evanston and just drive back to your hubby on the weekends (or him visiting you), or deal with the drive. Kellogg will be yards better than any program that's closer to Schaumburg...you'll get amazing placements out of Kellogg and very questionable at the closer schools. It's probably not the answer you're looking for, but it's the reality of the situation. Many couples either have to live separated or give up their work and find something new...you're situation makes you much better off.

Why not split the distance and move half way between. An hour is definitely doable, I know some people who drive that or more. Usually they try to set their schedule so they have classes on just a few days a week.

Hey guys,...Thank you for your reply !!..

You are right , There is no match to Kellogg nearby...Even I was a not ready to give up on Kellogg.. Probably I will try splitting the distance so that it becomes 30 mins for my hubby & me... That option is better..

Are you aware of what time the classes get over everyday?How convenient/ safe is it to travel by metra?

Thanks....

Day classes are done at 5pm, night classes are usually 9:30pm. The train is very safe and I wouldnt worry about it.

I highly recommend looking at the Kellogg thread in the applicants area and try to ask questions there, it gets a lot more traffic than this and its nice to try to capture questions and answers in one location so everyone can find it easily.
