I am in the process of deciding between MIT Sloan Fellows (1 year MBA), Anderson and Stern. Ultimately I am looking to transition into real estate investing, which doesn't have a formal recruiting process and is largely based on networking. I'm also interesting in fintech. Both career choices are a pivot rather than total 180. Long-term goal is to live in the Bay Area. I am 33and did not receive any $.

Below are my thoughts on each school:

MIT Sloan Fellows
*/- One year program (this is good and bad)
*Strong reputation in tech and real estate
*World renowned business school and high ranking
*National mobility. Had several say that reputation goes farther in CA than MA
*Access to all resources, faculty and electives of two year program
*High quality academics
-No internship
-Location, but can handle for one year
-Highly international cohort so many people I will get to know will go back home after the program

Anderson
*Great location and brings me closer to my desired city of SF
*Excellent real estate program
*Tech focused if I decided to pursue that path
*Looking for an adventure given that I've spent 33 years in New York
*Liked the people and school resources during the February preview weekend
*Can achieve my goals without a doubt
-School is less prestigious than other options
-Network is regional
-Reading mixed reviews on quality of community

Stern
*Excellent real estate program
*Tech focused if I decided to pursue that
*Impressed during preview weekend and fit in with other admits
*Slightly more well regarded than Anderson
-Regional network and placement
-Part time program is huge so it seems like everyone has an MBA from Stern
-I'm from NY so location isn't exciting
-More expensive in terms of tuition and cost of living.

I also got into Haas part time, but I want the full time experience. Haas full time was my top choice.

Any thoughts?

Stern has the best reputation and unless you want to be in LA long term, it doesn't make sense to choose Anderson over Stern

I would probably go with Stern here, that extra year of networking can help you out a ton here. Sloan feels a bit too accelerated for your career goals

You can take the GMAT no more than 8 times per the policy it is not clear whether cancelled scored count towards this as they are now no longer on your official score list. Given the language is "taken" you may be out of luck here
