I'm currently debating where I really want to apply and my list has come down to Darden, Ross, Tuck, and either Haas or Kellogg (maybe Duke but I'm not really into them). My stats are 3.3 GPA (econ, top 20 private school, transfered from a state school with a 4.0 after freshman year and it isn't included in that 3.3 but I don't know if anyone even looks at that...), 700 (43Q/42V low quant but I did econ and have a lot of quant stuff in my transcript so I should be ok, I hope), 4 years of WE in federal consulting, and good ECs after college.

My ultimate goal is to join a start-up or possibly start a business right out of school or potentially go into strategy consulting and then make the transition. So which is harder for someone like me to get into: Haas or Kellogg?

Personally, I'd much rather spend a few years out in CA than the midwest but I can make do if need be.

Hey EChopeful12,

I think you might already know the answer. Kellogg is going to be a lot harder to get into when it comes down to the raw stats.
Other than stats - why Haas?
    If you are going to join a startup, then the Bay Area is a better environment. I know some Chicagoland loyalists would beg to differ, but I stand by this one.
    Even at Haas, don't say that you want to start up a business. Again, I know anything is possible, but consider the adcom's POV. They want realms of probability, not possibility. But you can say that you want to join an entrepreneurial firm with a start-up mentality in the short term. Long term - you can start up your own thing no problems.
    The reality is that you do want to start up something - so Haas brings a lot to the table here - https://entrepreneurship.berkeley.edu/r ... artup.html


Just thought I would chime in - take it or leave it! :P

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti

Thanks Paul! Definitely not going to tell them I want to start a firm immediately after school. I'm planning on leaving that for the long-term goals, etc. Your help is appreciated.
