There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have been admitted and planned to matriculate at Tepper with $20k in scholarships. However, I have just been plucked off the Waitlist at Johnson for an interview. I will assume that if I get an admit, there will be no scholarship. A little bit about myself:
Pre MBA: 3 years in financial services with 2 coming as a financial advisor with major BB bank (wealth management side, not IB) series 7 and 66 FINRA licenses.
Looking for: I want to move into management consulting (MBB hopefully, but would be happy with deloitte, lek types). Need to develop quantitative skills in school and want to have solid consulting recruiting opportunities. I don't have a preference for where is work post MBA geographically.
Tepper vs Johnson, definitely a tough choice. I voted for Tepper. Looking at your post mba goal, Tepper has a higher percentage of students getting into consulting. Johnson is higher ranked when compared to Tepper. The scholarship and better consulting job opportunity at Tepper should outweigh the brand value of Johnson. Visit both the schools,talk to some current students and alumni and then make a decision.
I voted for Tepper (assuming you get no $ from Johnson) because of what you said about developing quantitative skills. Based on my understanding Tepper has a quantitative focus and its actually one of their selling points.
My advice would be to talk to students from both schools and get a sense for a) how many people got jobs/internships at MBB, etc and b) how they think their curriculum helped them land that internship/job.
I voted for Tepper. 1. You are accepted there 2. A little bit of money is better than no money 3. I did like Tepper way better than Johnson when visiting 4. Tepper is a great school to develop quant skills 5. The number going into Consulting is 33% at Tepper vs. 23% at Johnson
Thanks for the responses. I guess the only thing tha hangs me up on the consulting numbers at Tepper is that the may include some pretty heavy IT consulting rather than strategy work. I have no interest in IT work at all
