Hi all,

I have been struggling with this choice even though I am leaning towards Emory. I am aiming for MBB, but also I am looking at Deloitte and Accenture. My goal is management consulting.

Darden is obviously the powerhouse versus Emory. But I would need to take out $100K in student loans. At Emory I would only need to take out $20K in loans currently.

I don’t know how much more Ross is worth than Darden so I put that as an option as well. I am also considering reapplying in the fall, but I don’t know if my application would change all that much between now and then. If I got off the waitlist I am partial to taking the debt for Ross (loved the program/alumni network/etc). Darden was awesome but I haven’t been sold yet. Most people say Darden just because of the clout/brand recognition and that is worth something but it’s still not Harvard vs Emory.

I also am aiming to end up in Atlanta post graduation. Eventually after getting consulting experience I want to move into tech companies in business development (aiming for Austin later on, on the mccombs waitlist but took that off since Emory and mccombs are too close to justify that $80,000 gap).

Thanks for reading.

Wow congrats on your admit in great schools. It is very tough to choose between these 3 schools. Take a conscious decision considering your post-MBA goals. All the best :thumbup:

Compare them based on employment reports.

Darden has good MBB recruiting however they’re as good as Emory for hiring in tech.
If you’re ok with Deloitte and Accenture and the other Consulting firms, I think Emory is a great choice. Emory also has great tech recruiting.
Buy an apartment with the $80k saving and make $ from the rent.
Go Emory!

Hello Mbaguy72 .... welcome to the community.

Congrats on the great admit offer. I would choose Darden even if I have to take some loan.
But, again.... finally its your decision. All the best :) !!

Darden is a good choice for MBB, but there is no guarantee that everybody gets into an MBB from there.

And if you’re not interested in going to an MBB, it’s the same as going to a school which is strong with Deloitte/Accenture/other IBs/tech companies.
