Hello MBAgrad2021 ... welcome to the community and CONGRATULATIONs on the great offers.

For Tech ... I would definitely choose Booth. And if $ is not a concern, I would go for Both for consulting as well. Otherwise, Fuqua is really strong in Consulting.

Hope this helps.

Congratulations on your admits and scholarship!

It would be an easy decision if Fuqua had given you a full ride. I am tempted to recommend Fuqua because of a tighter student community even if it comes at the expense of juicier on campus recruiting opportunities. Fuqua does have MBB on campus and definitely other consulting options. I’m hearing booth gets more attention from tech companies especially for the higher end PM positions.

If you have undergrad debt, definitely strongly consider Duke. Your overall profile and description a bit cryptic (or absent I should say) so it’s hard to read about your financial sensitivity but with all things equal Booth will always trump Fuqua as it’s a bigger and more centrally located program with a higher ranking.

Booth is a lot stronger for both consulting and tech and overall the stronger brand, but the experiences will likely be very different in an urban vs rural setting. Unless money is of extreme importance and you want to be in a more rural setting, go with Booth here.

Agree with jessepinkman above. Booth is a lot stronger in both tech and consulting than Fuqua. Had it been full ride at fuqua, this would have changed my answer but in light of your end goals, Booth makes the most sense here. Although MBB usually adopt a low touch strategy wrt recruiting, it will help you network when you are in Chicago with Booth.

Just curious, have you asked for more money? This is a close call--no doubt I'm biased but made a similar (Duke with $) decision. I think the arguments for Fuqua are:

1) Experience: Did you want a classic collegiate environment and a tight-knit community? If so, that intangible experience found at Tuck/Duke/Darden can't really be replicated
2) Money: 90k+ (especially factoring in interest) is significant and can adjust mid term goals like buying a home or starting a family or just general lifestyle
3) Desired Industry: If you had thoughts about finance (particularly investment management) I would say Booth no matter the cost, but given your goals of Consulting and/or Tech...Duke is quite strong in these areas and given that you are likely to stand out, that's a compelling story

Congrats on your awesome options and good luck!
