Honestly, I really dislike how little information Stern shares about which firms its students work at following graduation. Maybe you can get more information from them now that you've been admitted, but it's definitely annoying (and a slight red flag) to me.

It wouldn't hurt to live in NY after my MBA, though that is not a top aspiration for me.


Personally, I don't see why'd you go to Stern if you didn't want to end up in NYC afterwards. Being in the middle of Manhattan and close to prospective employers is a reason why Stern is a big draw and is more selective than it's peer schools.

I want to end up in NYC after graduation, but after researching programs, I deemed that there were more schools other than Columbia/Stern that had strong NYC placement.

Here are my thoughts on consulting placements - as far as I know Ross and Tuck place much better in consulting than NYU and Darden, although the money at Darden is something which cannot be ignored completely. There are some boutique firms that recruit at Tuck - the likes of L.E.K etc. Darden is strong general management program. Last thing I would point out is choose where do you want to spend your two years and that includes everything including the nasty weather at Tuck ,where people spent most part of their winters in bunkers :-D. Also NYU vs Tuck important fact - For most part of the recruiting cycle the perspective employers spend almost 2-3 weeks with students on campus at Tuck, something that should not be expected at NYU.

Take a look at Stern's latest employment reports, compared to those of 2010-11.
It looks like consulting recruiting is growing on the expanse of I-Banking.

It makes sense and sits well with what you were told during your interview.

Take Darden: its case method is closer to cases you need to crack for your interviews in consulting.
Take Stern if you really want to work in NY.

Why you applied to Tuck , if you dont like it??

Choose school based mainly on what industry you want to work in. If you want to in financial services go to NYU without a moment of hesitation. Consulting - Tuck. Tech - Ross/Tuck. Decide on which industry you would rather work go, decision of school becomes easy.
