What are the most academic hardest MBA programs? I know darden works it's students a ton... What are some other schools that are the polar opposite of the grade non disclosure culture I'm looking for? HBS? MIT? Tuck?

Business school is what you make of it. If you take challenging electives and prioritize getting top grades, then nearly any school can be quite difficult. If you don't care much what your grades are and take fluff electives, nearly any program can be pretty easy.

Darden's a shoo-in for the most demanding program. INSEAD and the IIM-A are pretty good contenders though.
I agree with Moss. For the most part, it's what you choose to make of it. One can always take up easy electives and breeze through the course.

Owen also claims to have the hardest MBA curriculum. And I know that Tepper is quant-heavy, but I don't know about their workload.

Booth claims its the most academically rigorous program there is.

But at the same time, its flexible curriculum allows you to make the program as easy or as challenging as you want it to be.

I guess it depends on you. If you take a financial course involving derivative instruments and partial differential equations it might get extremely difficult. IF you take more marketing or human resources courses would be another thing. It depends on you and your concentration.
