Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I'm in the fortunate position of having a tough decision to make. I've got admits to Kellogg, LBS, and McCombs and am waiting to hear back from Tuck (Feb 10). I fall into the non-traditional/career changer bucket - was a singer-songwriter and independent consultant in the music industry. Post-MBA I'm leaning toward consulting but would like to leave my options open and look into energy and/or finance (broad strokes I know). I was initially really attracted to LBS because of the international factor and opportunities to work abroad but am somewhat worried about the brand recognition stateside (where my wife and I would like to end up eventually). Any suggestions?
I assume you have already decided against McCombs since it was not listed in the topic title. It’s a great school and Austin is a wonderful city, but unless money comes into play or Austin’s music scene really interests you I would not place it on the short list.
I would also leave out LBS since your goal is to eventually work in the U.S. and you have acceptances from two top-notch American schools.
It comes down to Kellogg and Tuck (with your track record I think you have an excellent shot at getting in). Both have excellent reputations with an almost negligible edge to Kellogg. They both also boast strong placement into consulting. I think Kellogg, being a larger school, will be better if you’re not sure of your post-mba goals. You will find students interested in just about everything. But in the end, it comes down to fit. Get a feel for both schools and decide where you’re more comfortable spending two years. I feel this is especially true when talking about Chicago vs. Hanover.
Good luck and I hope to see you at Kellogg next fall!
