Concur. I would take a look at each school's employment reports to see how many students they send to consulting. In my view, Ross/darden/Johnson/fuqua are equals, so. Would focus on fit (Ross and fuqua a bit larger than Johnson and Darden) and teaching method (darden case method, Johnson Immersion).

Congrats on your admits. These are all great schools and will open doors for you.

Thanks! What worries me is that unlike Darden(which doesnt have the exact # of students going into each company), Duke has a really good breakdown.

Is there anyway to find out the exact numbers? Right now, there is only a percentage shown for students going into each industry and a list of all employers where more than 2 grads are hired.

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but at least it's more information. On the Darden Internships page (http://www.darden.virginia.edu/web/MBA/ ... ternships/), it has an exact breakdown of the top internship hires, including all the consulting firms you are probably interested in.

Hi there,
I am a 2nd year student at Darden and can speak to our program a bit.

In terms of the case method, it is a great experience and I encourage you to visit a class to check it out. It is definitely the most engaging classroom experience I have ever had - and challenges you to be a better communicator and also highly analytical about the case material. My favorite course in the first year core curriculum was Accounting, which I never would have predicted. But it was very interesting, strategic, and even philosophical at times - again, things I never thought I would say about accounting but it was all about the format and style of the course. So, I have gotten a great deal out of the case method and think overall it has lived up to the hype.

On the recruiting front, management consulting is a very popular track at Darden and I have been very impressed with the caliber and depth of firms recruiting on campus. Certainly, the Big 3 are represented and recruit heavily, as do others such as Deloitte, Booz, AT Kearney, and smaller boutique shops. I consider consulting one of Darden's strong suits, although I didn't personally pursue this path.

Hope this helps!

Agree. every school talks about how collaborative they are, but i feel that most from the Ross students and alumni. I am not sure about the resources on MC which school offer you the most, but if you want to come to Asia after graduation, the Ross alumni network is much stronger than the other two.
