Need Advice- CBS or Haas? [#permalink] New post 12 Jul 2012, 15:18
Folks. I have a big decision to make and would like to pick on your wisdom..This is my profile M/27/4.5 W.E/ Asian/ 740 GMAT. I have a 3.9 GPA in my undergrad from a top 10 engineering school in Asia, 4 years W.E in a blue chip consulting firm in the US and have a pretty decent work experience in operations/ technology/ project management.. I have led non profit groups outside of work and have plenty of extra curricular activities..This year I applied to Haas and was denied admission w/o interview, but have been admitted into J Term at CBS. I recently learned that I will be promoted in my firm this July end. I would like a POST MBA career in strategy in technology companies in the west coast or in strategy consulting firms. Should I go ahead with J term at CBS which has no internship and potentially less career prospects or reapply to Haas, highlighting my promotion and the extra leadership work I did in the past year. How successful are re applicants at Haas?

Columbia had career treks to the West Coast and connections to the tech firms in Silicon Valley. While it might be on the second or third job that you come back to the West, it is doable. However, if you reject Columbia's offer, you may not get it again and you have no guarantee of acceptance at Haas.

I would take the bird in hand.

Best,
Linda
