Pharaohs80x,
This thread is very helpful. Thanks a ton. I initially PM'd you. But I thought this might help others too. So posting it here again. Sorry for the double post/message.

I am a software architect (Insurance Industry). I am in the same boat as you were a few years ago. I got admitted to Booth and Haas.
My focus is on entrepreneurship (long term) and management consulting (short term, with tech focus probably) during/after MBA.



Are you happy with the opportunities PT students got at Booth regarding New Venture Challenge, access to Polsky center? Is the VC community existent there? Good speakers from Silicon Valley give speeches etc?

Can you also let me know if MBB consulting companies recruit PT students at Booth or is it hard for PT students to approach them even after good networking?

Could you also talk about the camaraderie of the students, networking options, FT students' rage etc?

The thing I liked at Haas was the campus feel, as PT classes are also on the campus, but Gleacher center for Booth is completely separate from the main campus.
But I realize that as a weekend student I would be there only on Saturdays so I guess that should not make any material difference.

I live in Houston,TX currently and would love to move to the bay area but I don't want to give up the brand that comes with Booth. I am thinking on choosing Booth and look for opportunities in Bay Area in the future. Best of both worlds, I guess. Also the flexible curriculum and 6 free courses letting us take any 'hot courses' (like data analytics is right now) are a big advantage from my viewpoint.



Any further perspectives from you now would be immensely helpful to me to confirm my choice. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Raj
