I did a search to see if there were posts made before on what schools are known to be family/spouse friendly in general, but I didn't find anything relevant. Perhaps it was my lack of creativity in query searches.

Anyway, what schools (ultra elites and elites) are known to be family friendly in general? Are accommodating to students with spouses who aren't a student?

Thanks in advance

Dartmouth (Tuck) immediately comes to mind and I think most others would agree.

Kellogg definitely is very family friendly. I know that in my section there are several who have kids, some who have multiple kids. I would say probably 5% of the 1st year class has kids (more 2nd years) and about half come with a spouse or significant others. My wife has been out every night that she wants with other significant others.

Great feedback guys - much appreciated. It's helping me to better dial-in my focus on what schools I should take a closer look at.

I've started to better understand and appreciate the importance of "fit" when it comes to b-schools. Granted it's hard to give up the prospect of attending an ultra-elite versus an elite, but I suppose the old adage of "a happy wife is a happy life" is true for a reason right? :lol:

Michigan's partners club is very good (and active) for both those with significant others and those with munchkins.

Emory seems to be very acommodating for spouses and partners. I know that my wife has made quick friends with many of the partners throught the official partners club sponsored at Emory. Matter of fact, I think about 10 of them are getting together tonight for a wine tasting while we study for tomorrow's midterm.
