Anyone know approximately when Basecamp begins? One week before classes begin? Two weeks? Trying to plot out when I will resign, when I can fit in some travel, etc.

Normally it is 4 weeks. You will receive the schedule soon.

Don't miss the base camp as it is an information session what you will need for the next 2 years.

Normally first week of august and ends by end of august. Then Mini 1 starts.

Basecamp is all about learning about all the facets of Tepper. I am pretty sure some of you will be curious about Accelerate Leadership center, Career opportunities , Clubs, faculties, Treks. All those will be answered during the basecamp.

Some of you have talked to me and I had given a very short glimpse of Tepper life. Basecamp brings together all of those things and more.

Again, Congrats and welcome to Tepper. It has been the best 2 years of my life.

Hey, I know this is off-topic, but can you comment on the recent success your classmates have had recruiting for investment banking?

Can you connect with somebody from GFA? They can share their experience.

Is there a separate forum for housing?

How are you guys planning to search for housing? Id like to save $$ and live with a roommate, but have 2 cats, and realize that might be an issue for a roommate.

Anyone attending Welcome Weekend?

Hey guys. I need some help.

I am admitted to other similar school - rankings, costs and industry presence - similar.
I am wondering which one to choose.

So, can you please tell me, in your opinion, why Tepper is a good choice or not? That is, what are it's strengths and weaknesses?

Have you attended any of the admitted student events?

It's hard to answer this question without really knowing about your specific goals, but if you're looking at Consulting, Finance or Tech, Tepper is a very competitive program, and is looked upon favorably by industry recruiters.

If you truly believe that all your options are pretty equal in outcomes, then go with the program that embodies a culture that closely aligns with you. You are the only person who can answer this, and I would suggest reaching out to alumni of each of these programs, gauging their responsiveness, and trying to spend some time with other admitted students.

The great thing about Tepper is that it is a small program, and provides for an intimate experience (I'm sure you know this already). Although its not on the coast, you'll find that most students end up there in any case, and have a high quality of life while students in Pittsburgh.

Again, if you believe that all these programs are pretty similar in your scoring rubric, then go with the program that makes you excited, makes you feel empowered and would make you feel like a proud graduate.

No I haven't attended any admitted weekend - can't as my project requires travel for long period of time at once on remote sites.
I totally understand where you are coming from and that 'fit' factor, gut feelings of connection should be most important in this case. And that is exactly why I put out this post.
Before, I go with my gut feelings, I just want to ensure that I am not missing any 'objective' point or others' experiences that can help me decide.
That is why I want to know what are the strengths and weaknesses of the school.
