I'm asking for a friend but he is in at Booth, Tuck, and Fuqua. For me this is an easy decision as I would go to Uchicago.

He's not positive what he wants to go into but he's thinking VC/PE/ or finance at a tech company but he's not 100 percent sure. He's an extroverted guy and a good athlete who is worried that he won't get along with the kids at Booth as well as the ones at Tuck. I've heard a lot of Booth kids are quite nerdy but I could have heard wrong. Recruiting wise is Booth that much better than Tuck for the areas I listed above?

Is there any reason to go to Tuck or Fuqua with $$ over chicago? I'd love to hear from people who know any of these programs well and what the culture/student body/ academic competitiveness is like at each school.

I figure that Uchicago is know for being a finance powerhouse, being in chicago makes recruiting easy, and the program is big enough that you're bound to find people with similar interests. I'd love to hear everyones thoughts. Thanks.

I'd assume the culture is fairly different at these places. Tuck and Duke seem more collegial. But for PE, it might be Booth no contest.

Tuck and Fuqua are in fact more collegial and will probably overall fit his personality better. But you can find similar types of people at all schools and especially Booth. In fact I know a ton of them. He can probably achieve many of his career goals at Tuck as well but Booth will probably position him a bit better immediately post-MBA, but tuck has a great alum network so his opportunities would be strong there as well. But I would suggest visiting Tuck and Booth at the very least to make sure he is comfortable with vibe and location of each school as they are both pretty different from each other

Booth is by no means a nerdy school. i know many people who are studying there now and they fit the personality you described. Its a big class so everyone finds compatible friends. As for recruiting, the Booth brand is unmatched and alumni are in very influential PE and VC firms throughout USA. Its an easy choice!

Another vote for Booth - very strong in PE/VC and the ability to do in year internships is huge and can't be done at Tuck/Fuqua due to their rural locations. Also people are extremely social and outgoing here so your friend won't have any issues on that front. With a ~600 person class, he will have no problem finding tons of people to hang out with.
