Out of the Ultra Elite schools which one has the best social life/best looking people?

Would love to hear from current and former students.

I hear Booth tends to be a bit nerdier than the rest.

I haven't experienced the social life at other schools but Wharton has to be right near the top of this list. They brought in Kembrel Jones as Dean of Happiness (AKA Dean of Student Life) a few years ago. He's had a profound impact and the school is much better for it. Last week was the White Party, tonight is the Ibiza party, you get the idea. Hardly a night goes by without competing options for fun. I'm not talking about nerdy fun (for that, see MIT). Wharton has dinners, drinks, IM sports, and game nights (OK, maybe that's a bit nerdy). There are loads of good looking guys and/or girls. The hardest part if finding the time/energy to do it all.

Kellogg is known to have one of the best, if not the best, social scene. People are laid back, lots of parties, trips, etc.

Not sure how close to reality it is, but I have readed in the forums that Darden is boring...

I think Chicago is a huge party town. If you can handle the cold weather, you'll have so much fun in Chicago.

The question is not about the city, but the social scene at the school... I can say that we definely rock at Tuck ! Yeah, it's in the middle of nowhere but we rock at our parties !

I think if your school is in a huge city (Chicago, New York, Boston, San Fran), then the city becomes part of your school experience. Unless your school is in NH....just saying.

Columbia, of course! Not only do we have tons of events and social gatherings around campus every week, NYC is our playground and there's never enough time to do everything.

I would say most schools are what you make of it. If you want to behave like a 21 year old undergrad, there will be classmates with the same mentality. However, if you have 3 kids and are more interested in play dates then there will be some people who want that too. The larger the school the more people with like personalities, and the closer to a major city the more there is to do. Everyone living within close proximity helps.

Each school offers a little something different. Having spent two years at Kellogg, I can assure you no matter what your personality and lifestyle you will find a group of friends. If you have kids and/or family some schools definitely offer more for you in that regards and suggest you research that.
