Stern or Johnson for Management Consulting Placement [#permalink] New post 20 Dec 2011, 12:45
Hi everyone,

Long time lurker and first time poster. I wanted to get insights from fellow GMAT clubbers on which program would be better for top tier management consulting placement (BCG Bain Mckinsey). My background is in entrepreneurship (fairly unique but I am happy adcoms think its good enough). I have a lower GMAT score (690), so I believe this will be a factor in MC placement.

Which school would be better for placement at top consulting firms, Johnson or Stern? I was also admitted into UCLA Anderson, however, do not think I want to leave the east coast.

I also know certain schools have no grade disclosure policies to recruiters on On Campus Recruiting, does this policy hold forth for Johnson or Stern for MC firms?

How hard is it, for someone with a lower GMAT score, to get an interview with top teir consulting firms from these schools?

I apologize if these are ignorant questions, however, from what I read online, it is very difficult for sub 720 scorers at non top 5 schools to get placements at top tier consulting. If I am wrong, please do let know. I wish everyone the very best as the acceptance calls are coming in!

Those at these schools will be able to give you a better picture. But barring a response from someone who knows better, if I were you, I'd check out each school's consulting club, look at placement reports and go to the websites of the firms you are interested in. On their websites, they often have a sub-page dedicated to the schools they recruit at, listing all the events they plan to host. It can give you an indication of whether the school you are considering is a priority for them or not.
