I was waitlisted at Booth for R1 and just received a call from adcom. I was admitted to Stern R1. I'm hoping to go to a bulge bracket or elite boutique post MBA for investment banking. I didn't receive financial aid from either schools. I am in a relationship and currently live in New York with my partner; moving to Chicago will put a strain on the relationship. All that aside, I've visited both schools and liked my time at both but Booth was higher up on my list when I started the application process. Specifically for finance / investment banking, is Booth significantly better than Stern? Please help!

No, the difference is not that significant.
If IBD is where you see yourself, you would do absolutely great at Stern as well. It's on the quant buy-side where Booth might open a few additional doors, that's about it.

I did investment banking pre-MBA at a bulge bracket. You'll have a shot from Stern. We did MBA OCR and you can always network from NYC. That being said, for whatever reason our recruiting team / MDs were hungry for M7 MBAs. I remember my VPs wining and dining a Booth candidate in particular; the school had a good reputation at our firm. The issue is that we'd always lose them to elite boutiques or Goldman/MS.

I agree that while the prestige factor at Booth is a little better-- there are LOTS of very successful Stern ibankers so you definitely can have success from Stern-- plus you will be local to many banks and can network while in school. If you have personal reasons for Stern I think you can feel good about your choice!
