MBA Decision: Stern vs. Tuck [#permalink]

Guys, I am looking for some feedback related to a choice between a Stern MBA and a Tuck MBA. My career goals are to break into private equity (middle market), and ideally, end up in NYC. I have an investment banking background with a Big 10 UG (plays key part of my branding thinking), so I am aware it may be difficult either way, but I am willing to put in the work.

Priority #1: Break in to PE
Priority #2: Brand recognition
Priority #3: Alumni network (in general)
Priority #4: Alumni network (in NYC)
Priority #5: Plan B opportunities: Corp Dev, HF, IM, other principal investing roles

I appreciate your feedback. Good luck to everyone expecting decisions throughout March.

Tuck is better overall, but for PE specifically Stern seems to do better:

Keep in mind Stern has a bigger class, big part-time program, more people interested in finance, etc, so the differences aren't as huge as highlighted here. But still, going to come down to priority 1 or 2...if you want to give getting into PE your all, go with Stern; if you want the best brand, go with Tuck.

Network wise, Stern has a much bigger network, but Tuck is known to have a much more close-knit network (If you email a Tuck alumni you're much more likely to get a reply).
